    Hi John,

    What is the formula in estimator for working out cladding?
    I buy cladding in 4200mm Lengths,

    How do I need to write this in the excel database to get the:
    The total linear meter of boards to buy
    and the overall price for cladding.

    I have drawn a cladding component in Sketchup.

    You should be able to use the attribute of AREA and create a multiplier that converts to number of pieces. For example, a piece of siding. If you want to estimate number of pieces individually, use the coverage of ONE piece (height x length) for your multiplier. Does this make sense? Feel free to email an example and desired conversion and I will assist if possible.
