Non Visual – “Virtual” Products

Many of your ArcSite products and services will be added visually to the diagram. (As Shapes, lines, arcs, or areas).

However, if it does not make sense as a visual element (For example – a Work Permit Fee, Extended warranties, or a test to run) ArcSite allows you to define “non-visible” products.

Steps to Create

  1. Start the Product creation process 
  2. For the Visual Representation option, choose  ( No Visual )
  3. Note that once selected, the Visual option disappears
  4. Continue to define and then Save.


Use a Virtual Product

Virtual products by their very nature are not added visually to your drawing. Instead they are accessible from the Takeoff/Estimate Summary screen.

  1. Tap on the 1st icon in the top right corner of the screen
  2. Tap Takeoff and Estimate
  3. Tap Add Other Items in bottom left corner on Summary Screen
  4. Tap to add any available Virtual Products
  5. Define the quantity
  6. Tap OK to finalize
