Enter the measurements from your floor plan into the designated boxes of the software. The software will ask for detailed measurements for every item, such as floors, interior walls, exterior walls, windows, doors, siding, roof, stairs and beams. Depending on the size of your build, this may take several hours or only a few minutes.
Add any additional items that your build includes.
Review the entries that you submitted into the software. Ensure that you have not made any mistakes while entering your information.
Select the option to create a materials list from your floor plan.
Inspect the materials list, and then print out a copy using your printer.
- Before starting, use different color highlighters to mark areas on your floor plan that go together, such as windows, to ensure that you do not leave items out. Use a marker to go over the highlighted area once you have entered it.
- Depending on your software, you may be able to create a visual of your floor plan, and possibly a 3D imagine of your floor plan as well, if you desire.
