This video is a brief introduction to the use of SketchUp Template Files. By saving common cost data (like cost per unit of a product on a certain layer, or cost per square foot of a certain material) in a SketchUp template file, the next time you model something on that Layer or with that Material, Estimator will instantly display the costs associated with that selection. Common Components may be stored in this template file as well, but Components cost data may be saved with that component (as an individual .skp file) for importing into future models. Layers and Materials need to be in the file already (Template).
