Is there any way to have Estimator count multiple different components from one piece of stock? I have 3 support posts, each a different component, and each a different length, but I can cut all three from one piece of lumber. What is the best way to make all three count as one item in the estimate? Is it possible to do this in the Components tab?
Certainly, that is why I made the description entry a separate entry vs. using the component name (as I had it originally) – I did this for the very reason you mentioned. By way of example, in a framed wall, I may have several uses for a common length stud (stud itself, jacks of various sizes, maybe a slightly different wall height but still cut out of same stud) – IF I assign each of the unique components the SAME code, description, cost, etc., they will be combined in the report. So, in your case, simply give each one of the unique components the same description, etc. and they will be totaled in the report.
