I’ve done a handful of tutorials and am learning to use the tool for professional use. One thing I can’t figure out is how to use the material feature to generate reports of, say, amount of that material needed.
- create components for project representing different lumber (2x4, plywood sheet, 2x12, etc.)
- use the material tray (right side of screen) to assign a color to each component, changing color name to component’s lumber type
- use components to build project
When I generate the report, I’m choosing to have things grouped by their components with dimensional info included, but it’s completely blank. I’m not needing area, just total combined length of the studs. I can’t figure out what I’m missing; any help is appreciated.
