Extract Surface & Materials


Recommended Posts

Do not know if this is in the correct question arena.

 

Is it possible to assign Materials to an extracted surface??

 

Example:

Wall split into to 2 surfaces.

Lower for paneling upper for paint.

Thank you.

 

By Material I mean the new Materials in VW2021.

Can the materials be used in formula calculations, in this case takeoff??

Square Feet or area for the paint area and the paneling area of the wall.

I know one can apply a texture, but that is not a Material in VW2021 speak.

 

I am using VW2019 Architect and want to know how far or well integrated the new Materials are.

 

Appreciate any input.

Yes, you should be able to assign a Material to a Nurbs surface get quantity takeoff in worksheets.

Set a Wall Component for the Panelling and control its height in the Wall Component Settings

Then you can pull it into a worksheet

Subtract it from the Sheetrock to get the painted surface.
