Have made a fairly detailed building and now need to calculate facing material needs.
In order to do this I have tried to select follow several guides in order to find my total facing area, based on the material used. However I have not been able to achieve this using area.
Now I’m trying to use Right click on a face with this particular material, then click select>All with same material.
When I do this, some of my faces with this material is selected, but moste is not!? How come?
If I create a simple test figure with a few cubes and cover 4 sides with a material, the function seams to work, but in my larger project it’s not working!?
It is a project that I have been working on for quite some time, that I have been saving over time in several file names, every time I have made a major change I have saved in a new filename. I always forget using layers and groups, so as far as I recall, I have none of these. (I don’t know how to check this)
I ended up spinning and zooming in and out and manually selecting all the faces and then in entity info I found the total area.
