Bridge is a separate program that runs between eTakeoff Dimension and the Estimating system to which it is integrated. When Bridge is started, it captures all the item and assembly information from the estimating system and presents it within the Bridge Main window. The estimator drags an individual measurement from the drawing in eTakeoff Dimension […]
An “Assignment” is the relationship between a specific takeoff object (measurement) and a specific estimating object (item/assembly).
Basic Setup Mode allows you to quickly create Traces in Dimension by dragging Estimating assemblies from Bridge and dropping them on Standard Traces in Dimension. Watch the Basic Setup Mode video here.
Extended Setup Mode is similar to Basic Setup Mode, however Extended Setup Mode will transfer all the Assembly variables, variable notes, min/max ranges and defaults. Watch the Extended Setup Mode video here.
