Hello,

I'm a user of the ai MAXTool "Bill of Materials" tool and was wondering if you could possibly add a column option that outputs the surface area of each part. It would be much appreciated.

Sincerely,

ConnerM

Hi Connor,


Thanks for the push -- we've had this on the list for a while, but didn't do anything with it. However, thanks to your suggestion, we've done the work and should have something for you to test later today! (plus, we added an "Area" field to the AI Info tool so you can see area at a glance for individual objects).


I'll check back with you later today via PM or email with instructions for how to download and test it.  :)
