I have created a material takeoff and there are components such as toilets doors and windows listed with a area SF value associated. I would instead like to have a fixed cost for these items rather than a cost based off SF or area values. Is there a way to accomplish this in a Material Takeoff or should I just us a schedule and filter out these items from the materials takeoff? IS the materails takeoff an appropriate place to list these items, Whats your approach? 

 

Thanks,

I would do per item takeoff seperate from materials - seperate schedules.

OK cool.

So how lets say I just want floors walls and roofs in my material takeoff is there a way to select these multiple categories when creating a takeoff rather than than selectin "multiple categories" which selects all of the elements?

In all schedules, you can add a column that you only use for filtering purposes and then you hide it.   So maybe in this case, you curse the family name and filter accordingly.

 

We also add a shared project parameter to all categories for schedule manipulation (in our template and included in our template schedules).   Typically if there is an X in that parameter, the item is never scheduled.  But this field could be used in multiple ways.

Now I am incountering a diffrent problem. I am putting togather a Materials Takeoff of the Floor layers in my project. On level 1 the floors and subsequent areas display correclty and the SF values associated. However on Level 2 with the same floor type there are no area values associated with the floor. Why would this be especially considering I am using the exact same floor type?

We don't have enough information to answer except to say it is something in your process.

 

Are you sure you have a floor on that level?  It could be that the floor is on a different level and just offset to where it should be.
