hi, i'm using archicad 24 and i'm working on budget project on my uni, and i need to calculate the flooring price. here in my country, we use a sheet made by a government agency, and there is different prices depending on the zone calculated area - if area > 5 = price X; 5 < area < 10 = price Y; area > 10; price Z.
i'm using the property manager to apply these conditions, and i think i got the right expression, the problem is that the properties i want - calculated area and flooring total cost - doesn't show on the archicad sheets, because they are not related to surfaces, and i can't seem to find a way that allows me to apply an zone property on a slab surface/skin. also, i can't, by all means, use the surface/skin properties on the property manager, like "área projetada componente/camada" or "área exposta (por critério)" - i think it translates to "projected area component/layer" and "exposed area (by critery/description/choice idk)".
since i'm working with flooring, i put "slab" on the "availability for classifications" of each one of the properties i'm creating (unit costs and total costs), but i don't know if this is correct. here is the expression i made to calculate the total cost of the ceramic flooring (i wrote the property as "[CT] - Piso Cerâmico").
i'm from brazil, so i'm translating some of the parameters/properties. i don't know if i'm translating right though:
área medida = calculated area
zona = zone
laje = slab
área de superfície do topo = top surface area
TATE - Revestimentos = a group made by me on the property manager, related to the discipline/course.
[Custo Unit.] Piso Cerâmico (>5)/(5-10)/(<5) = properties made by me on the same group i mentioned before, which means [Unit cost] Ceramic flooring (>5)/(5-10)/(<5). i put the prices offered by the government sheets on them, their data type is "number" and default value is "value"; availability for classifications: custom > slab.
[CT] Piso Cerâmico = ceramic flooring total cost. data type = number; default value = expression; availability for classifications: custom > slab.
anyways, if anyone can help me, i'd be reaaally thankful
