Choosing areas to include in Tak-offs
SoftPlan Version:
2016 Plus

Is there a way to only select certain walls for a tak-off?  I have an addition that I'm drawing and the take-off includes the existing structure and I only want the addition.

 

Thanks,  Tom

Uncheck Include in SoftList

You can right click on an item and uncheck "Include in SoftList" for any item that you don't want counted. You can use Repeat Edit to expedite the settings.

Whenever I do an addition, I

Whenever I do an addition, I make a new Building Option called "Existing" . I place everything that is associated with the existing building on that Building Option. Now when I want to run a SoftList report, I simply turn off that Building Option. This does 2 things

  1. SoftList does not report anything on a Building Option that is turned off.
  2. Once a Building Option is turned off it is not visible in 3d. This give you a visual .indication of what's going to  be reported. The trouble with  simply turning off the "Include in SoftList" checkmark is that you can miss an item and not realize it.
