In this video, we check out Report on Areas – a tool from Fredo6 contained inside of his FredoTools extension for reporting the amount of materials inside your SketchUp models!
Remember – be very careful with any quantities you generate with materials in a SketchUp model – do some kind of verification to make sure your quantities are correct!
