Tutorial: Calculating and Reporting Quantities

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create and manage pay item data, associate pay item codes with several types of drawing objects, and generate pay item quantity reports.

A pay item is a specific unit of work for which a price is provided and paid to a contractor while a site is under construction. It consists of a pay item ID number, description, and unit of measure.

Pay items can be associated with any AutoCAD entity, such as lines, closed polygons, and blocks, after they have been created. When pay items are associated with an AutoCAD Civil 3D pipe network parts list or code set style, then the pipe network or corridor object is automatically tagged with the specified pay items.
