Components are designed by defining the units and materials to be used in the quantity with the Design Components command for detailed quantities . The name, unit and size (volume, length, area etc.) of the materials are determined.

Location of Design Components Command

You can access it under the ribbon menu tools tab, Quantity Report title.

Create New Unit

First, the units that determine the size of the materials that make up the quantity are defined. For this;

  • Click the Design Components icon.

  • The Category Settings dialog will open.

  • Click the Create New Unit button after clicking the units folder with the left mouse button.

  • The program will switch to the Unit Settings dialog.

  • A line with the name New Unit 1 will appear under the units folder .

  • Enter the unit name and conversion rates and select the length type.

  • Your unit will be formed in the properties you enter.

  • Close the dialog by clicking the OK button. Otherwise, the unit you created appreciation will not be added to the list.

Create New Material

For the components report, the materials to be used in the quantity are defined. The name, unit and size (volume, length, area etc.) of the materials are determined.

  • Click on the Design Component icon.

  • The Category Settings dialog will open.

  • After clicking the materials folder with the left mouse button, click the Create New Material button.

  • The program will switch to the Material Settings dialog.

  • A line with the name New Material 1 will appear under the materials folder .

  • On the right side of the dialog, there will be changeable lines containing information and properties of the new material.

  • Edit and determine the properties and information of the material as you wish.

  • Your new material will be created.

  • Close the dialog by clicking the OK button. Otherwise, the material you created will not be added to the list.

Name

The name of the unit is written. For example, if the unit is meter, it is meter, if it is square meter, it is m² etc. you can give names.

Tip

It determines which unit the component we define as unit represents. One of the options of height, area, volume, mass, time, energy, number is selected from the list.

The default units of sizes in the type list are:

Height -> Meter

Area -> Square meter

Volume -> Cubic Meter

Mass -> Kilogram

Time -> Minutes

Energy -> Joules

There are no default units of currency, count and general size.

Conversion ratio

The value to be taken as basis is entered while converting the defined new unit to the unit written next to the line. Each size listed on the type line has default values. For example, when the height size is selected in the type line, the default height value is 1 meter. If the unit is to be used as centimeter, for example, it is converted to centimeter by writing 100 to the conversion rate.
