Setting and changing wall heights in Cubit Estimating


In Cubit Estimating a height of the Verticle wall takeoff can be set before measuring the shape or after the shape has been measured. Below are the 2 way the height of the wall can be set or modified.

When drawing a new shape:

1. Open the Job.

2. Create a new Estimate item and set the Result type as Vertical Area or Vertical Area Less Openings.

3. On the Viewport, open the plan for takeoff.

4. Ensure you have a Polyline selected from the Home ribbon, Shapes to draw a shape.

Note: Make sure the plan is scaled.

5. On the New task pane, under the heading New Shape, edit the Description to set a shape name and edit the Height(mm). Under the Next line heading, you can also edit the Start Height(mm) and/or End Height(mm)

Note: Start / End Height calculates the height details for the next line drawn. This doesn’t affect any completed shape.
