Calculating Wall Vinyl

This comes up from time to time. 

When we create walls in Measure, the software treats each wall as a separate room, rather than a single surface. When vinyl is applied, for example, Measure shows a quite different layout to that which will be reality; Measure assumes that there will be joins in each corner, whereas, in fact, the vinyl will wrap into the corner from one wall and carry on to the next surface. 

The two screenshots attached show that there is not much difference in quantity, but a significant difference in number and placement of joins.

Would it be possible to have the option to create walls as a single surface?

  • Good morning Chris, hope all is well on your side of the world.  Can you offer some more specifics on the product used and the type of application this product is used in.  I have not come across anyone here in the US that comes across this type of install.

  • All is good over here Dave, thanks.

    So the product is wall vinyl, glued to the wall. Vinyl will be installed in runs down the wall, so we will have joins the width of the vinyl (usually 2m) apart. Where the installer comes to a corner, the vinyl will be folded into the corner and continue on to the next wall. In other words, there is not a join at the corner as a plan out of Measure might indicate. In the screenshots above, the first shows how Measure currently indicates a join on each wall, plus joins at the corners. The second screenshot does not have joins in the corners,

    The quantities calculated by Measure are sufficient, but the join placement is incorrect.
