Find And Report is an extension that lets you find any element in your model by typing a few characters in a search field. You can customize attributes to identify these elements. Any element of the model, such as an edge or a surface, and not just its components, can be identified.
You can then export information on selected elements to a spreadsheet. With their dimensions, custom attributes and materials, you can easily create a bill of quantities.
The tool is available for free on the Extension Warehouse : Extension | SketchUp Extension Warehouse. The best way to learn more about the extension is to try it out. After installation, you’ll be given a single button that opens a window to manage your data.
