    Hi Jeffrey,

    Thank you for your comments.  I would suggest taking a look at the Cost Inspector Tool within Quantifier Pro.  Even if you are not interested in the cost per se, you should be able to set up some cost data that will convert quantities in your model to a more useful output.  For example, you could set up a cost data rule where that converts surface area to number of parking spaces.  You just need to input the 'factor' for converting the area to number of spaces.  

    Then, you could use the cost inspector tool to get live auto-refreshed feedback as the model changes.

    Thank you Dale for following up on this. 

    That is helpful. I do like the Cost Inspector - is there a way to keep that window open while you use other sketchup tools? Is there also a way that it doesn't completely change the appearance of colors/materials in the model? Also, is there a way to select more than one group/component at a time, or groups/components that have subgroups/subcomponents?

    It would be great if there was a good way to customise what you see in the main Quantifier Pro dialog or the Cost Inspector dialog.

    Unfortunately, the inspector has some limitations.  Yes, it closes when another tools is selected.   You can't prevent the colors from changing but you can revert them if you open your layers panel and switch off 'color by layer'.  No way to select more than one at a time I'm afraid.
