Hi ,

It seems that i can put new items on layer 13_SITE_SETUP but in takeoff it won’t appear.
I’m using MAC.

Hi joedol,

Thank you for your post.

Is the ‘13_SITE_SETUP’ layer turned on in the Layer Manager when you do a takeoff?

Hi ,

This is what i did, see attachments.

Hi joedol,

I think I know what the issue it now. It appears as though it’s just a regular component without any estimating information.

When you created the container component did you use the PlusSpec BIM Tool to add all the estimating information (i.e. Name, Itemcode, Price, etc.)?

Hi JoeDol, I made a video on this that will help you with this. Here is a link, It is to the exact spot in the video so you do not have to watch the lot. https://youtu.be/wrwDc0m0cn4?t=5m3s

Let me know if you need any more help. :slight_smile:

Hi Andrew ,

I didn’t use the Plusspec Bim Tool , now it is ok.


Okay great, I assume you are saving them to the components menu like in the video, it is a big time saver. If you get a chance post a screen shot of one of your coolest models. I’d be interested to see what you are doing. Thanks for responding. :smiley:
