To create and edit assemblies, you need to open the Assemblies Database tab on the main project page in Kreo 2D Takeoff first.

What is an assembly?

Read this article to find out what we mean by the "Assembly" term.

How to create an assembly?

  1. Open the Assemblies Base inside the Assemblies Database

  2. Press the New button at the top right of the page and insert a name for your future assembly

  3. On the right "Items" side of the panel, tick items or whole groups of items you'd like to add to the assembly

  4. Once the first item is added to the panel's left side, you can add new properties to the item inside not leaving the panel. Here you can also hide any property or completely remove it from the assembly

  5. Now press the Create button at the top of the panel and you'll see the assembly appeared in the Assemblies base

How to edit an assembly?

In order to edit any previously created assembly, you need to click on the Expand icon near the assembly's name & click on the row with the assembly's data which appears.

Once you're happy with edits, press Save at the top of the panel.

Operations available with assemblies

Aside from simple operations, such as Expand all / Collapse all / Reset columns / Autosize all columns, you can also:

  • Duplicate assemblies

  • Delete assemblies

  • Create new groups

To perform any of these operations, right click on the necessary assembly and select the relevant operation.

Set your view in the Assemblies Base

  1. Leave only necessary assemblies in your view by filtering them. To do this, hover over the name of any column and click on the icon which appears. There select the filter icon and (un)tick the relevant columns.

  2. You can also set your view in the Assemblies base and remove unnecessary columns or add some. To do this, hover over the name of any column and click on the icon which appears. There select the last option and (un)tick the relevant columns.
