Thank you for the reply, it is much appreciated.
I did explore your suggestion, it really does not solve the problem. Your work around creates an either/or solution where as one material or the other is accounted for in the material takeoff. I need a way to account for both without having to export the material takeoff to excel and then add materials after the fact. That’s way to inefficient and ripe for mistakes.
This same scenario applies to several areas throughout the building. As another work around, I did try using the Wall Surface Tool, and that has great potential. The problem comes as it is layered for internal areas only and reports material to the incorrect area of the takeoff. This then forces output to excel and unnecessary manual modification.
Can the Wall Surface Tool be modified to create and capture individual materials for exterior use and classification? From a materials perspective, this would allow many unique assemblies to be accounted for.
Is there any other means to capture additional material from the model?
I look forward to your timely reply.
