Hi I need some advice
I have an issue with the attributes for a wall panel board which I am trying to create.
I want some attributes since I want to be able to get a report of the total length of the boards and a total cost of all the boards used.
Sorry but my Sketchup version is a Swedish one but I try to explain.
These boards are going to be set on the gable of a house as shown in the picture. Here are only half of the boards shown. Some of them have been adjusted in length. Each board will be unique component to be able to adjust the length individually.
I have added an attribute for length (LenY) and created two attributes for price per meter and price (total). Looks like this.
The formula for the Pris_kr/Price_SEK is =Pris_per_m_kr*LenY/100
When I created the dynamic component Ytterpanel/Outerpanel the length was originally 2700 mm. With a price of 10 SEK per meter the total price for the board will be 27 SEK. OK, so far so good.
But when I added the boards to the wall and started to adjust the length for each board, I expected that the calculation for the price would update automatically and show the new price. But it didn’t.
As shown in the picture above the price is still 27 SEK although the length has changed to 95mm.
To get an update of the price I must type in 10 once more and then the price will be correct. And I must do this for every board individually. And that takes a little time.
My question is:
Why doesn’t the Pris/Price update automatically when I adjust the length?
