If there are door/window openings in walls, is the side area of the door/window openings calculated when calculating wall finish area? How?
The side area of door/window openings is calculated when calculating wall finish area.
Judge the side area of openings based on the location of the door/window opening frame.
By default, the distance between frame centerline and wall centerline is 0. In this case, add half of the side area of opening to the wall finish to each side of wall.
The one side wall finish area adding side area of opening: opening height * (wall thickness - frame thickness) / 2 * 2 + opening width * (wall thickness - frame thickness) / 2
How to calculate the wall finishes at a lift opening?
After laying wall finishes to the walls outside a lift opening, how can I add the quantity of finishes to the side of lift opening to the quantities of finishes to walls outside the lift opening?
Incorporate all quantities for opening side to the outside wall finishes. Achieve this by adjusting the distance between frame centerline and wall centerline.
Wall thickness = 300mm, door height = 2100mm, door width = 1200mm.
1) Modify the distance between frame centerline and wall centerline to -120. Note that if the frame is placed on the left side of the wall, represent it with a negative sign.
2) After clicking Summary Calculate, view the quantity of wall finish.
Note: To calculate wall finishes accurately, you’d better draw the lift opening using the door element.
