Material Library Prices

Phil Jackson

Posted on June 6, 2022

Hi, I have a master library of all the materials that we use. Every time we create a new design we start with this library (3x2, 4x2, OSB 8x4 etc etc). Within this library we have set the prices of each material with our current buy prices. If at a later date we sell an item that we built 6 months ago the prices have all changed so is there a way to extract the prices from the library and import them into the old model so that the prices all update. Because there are circa 20-30 materials in each product it would be huge task for someone to have to manually update the price of each material individually - especially as this happens daily across multiple items. I am hoping that there is a preset export/import option somewhere? Many thanks.

Phil,

Currently there is no such option, but it would be nice for users who work with a common library of materials.

We have seen requests for this feature, but not many, that's why it is not yet implemented.

Could we possibly fund this feature?

Hi Phil,

Is your master library a collection of SKM files ?
