    Good afternoon . when inserted into the excel file layout - an error occurs with the duration and size values, they are duplicated, although I don’t see such a problem in the excel file

    Thanks for the update! These are awesome new features and fixes, but I'm still looking for the "round up" option for quantities. ;) Thanks Dale! Peace be with you!

    thanks Braden!  This feature is still on our radar and will likely happen at some point.  Unfortunately I cannot say when because I simply don't know.

    Is there a way to measure an object in f2 by the tag without subtracting the holes?

    If the object was created using Profile Builder and is rectangular like a wall, the holes will always be deducted (as of version 1.2).  For other types of profiles, the holes will not be deducted when calculating area.

    I see. We usually usually will estimate sheetrock by the measurement of the wall as if there's no holes. An accurate amount of waste is hard to figure for when the size of the openings is so variable. My current work around is a saving a copy of the model with no openings.

    A cut-out to sq/ft ratio is useless- it isn't consistent. We usually install all the sheathing, then use the RO to cut out the correct sized holes for windows and doors. This way we have fewer seams, it's easier to figure out materials, and it's easier and quicker to install.

    I use Medeek wall quite a lot, and having the figures for sheathing and etc is awesome, except for the holes getting cut out.

    Also, I noticed that turning off the visibility of a tag folder does not remove the cost items associated with the tags in that folder from reports. One must open the tag folders, and hide the individual tags. When dealing with complicated tag hierarchies, this becomes very cumbersome. It would be very useful if there was a toggle for the option of removing tags from reports by hiding tag folders.

    Please don't think I'm railing on you. I just have ideas. :D

    Hi Braden - how are you setting up your sheathing cost data?  Are you using Material$ and applying a material to represent the sheathing or are you using Tag$ sq footage (projected area)?  And are you using Profile Members as your walls or some other method?

    Regarding the tag folder issues, I have logged this as an issue which we will look at for a future update.  Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

    I am using Medeek wall assemblies and the tags his plugins create.

    There is nesting involved:

      1 -- Wall Assembly (Untagged)

            2 -- Sheathing (wall_sheath)

                  3 -- Raw Geometry (Untagged)

            2 -- Framing (wall_frame)

            2 -- etc. and so on... 

    I simply use the tag "wall_sheath" and set the Input to "ft²" and then set the Factor for "/32" to get x amount of 4x8 sheets.

    The sheathing is essentially a skinny box (solid group), but the plugin will punch holes in the cladding and sheathing for windows and doors while properly framing them out.

    Here's a gif showing how I get the sheathing quantified:
