I am using SpaceDesign trial version and I am trying to have SpaceDesign to calculate the area of different materials in SketchUp 2014 pro.

As an example, I have a cubic space that has 5 different materials on the outer side. Currently, the only way I know about to calculate these surface areas is by creating a dynamic component and giving it attributes (as an example:"=FACEAREA("MW51b") in this, MW51b is the material on one side)

With this method, I will have to re-add all the attributes to all new dynamic components. I do know that SpaceDesign has the ability to calculate areas with %a% or %a-m% in metric meters. But is there a way to have SpaceDesign calculate the area of the different materials without adding attributes to the dynamic components?

Thanks in advance!
