PlusSpec is amazing! But what is more amazing is how open to ideas and suggestions the PlusSpec team are. Due to this (as well as the quality of the program), PlusSpec will only go from strength to strength!

Keep up the great work guys, and thanks for listening!

Guys, Any more movement on this being changed to 200mm rather than 190mm?

Hi Andrewwc,

Personally, I think that it should remain unchanged (and show the actual 190mm). I think that it would be a problem to diverge from actual material thicknesses!

In my opinion, all materials should be shown at actual material thicknesses. The drawings need to be correct - and reflect accurate structural and material thicknesses. If trades have a particular way of rounding up/down/etc, they are entitled to do so. As what Andrew Dwight stated, a block layer can add 100mm, but it isn't actually correct. From an architectural point-of-view, I need the walls and materials to be accurate on my drawings. The trades can simply adjust these drawings as per the methodology of the area (country, state, etc).

This is why this thread diverged slightly, in discussing the possibility of showing the structural as well as finished thicknesses of walls.

I agree with you, mate. For all elements other than blockwork. It just won't work in area of high use of blockwork. Builders/Blockies get the ***** with me if I produce a set of plans dimensioning 190 block....
