48. ROLLS OR LENGTHS IN BOM AND LABELS

Post by jovivier »

Bill of Materials reports display the quantities of pipe based on the 3D distance by default. However, commonly the number of lengths or rolls is required rather than the meterage/footage.

In order to have the number of lengths, or rolls, of pipe appear in the Bill of Materials reports enter the meterage/footage in the Roll/Len column in Design|Pipe Fitting Matching Table.

For example, in the image below, 6(m) has been entered as the roll/len for PVC. Subsequent BOM reports will now display the number of lengths required for each PVC pipe size.

Once you have entered a Roll/Len in the Pipe Fitting Matching Table you can also apply this value to pipe labels by using the #ROLLS# or #ROLLS3D# keywords.

Note the Rounding or Rolls/Len entries are not used in the Costing reports.
