Create paint systems

By using paint systems, you can apply more than one coat of paint for an estimating job. When you select a paint system in an estimating job, Tekla EPM calculates the applicable costs and adds them to the estimate. Note that globally available paint systems need to be created before creating the estimating jobs where you want to use them. Otherwise, the paint systems will not be available.
