how do estimaters come up with the random lengths of dim.material needed in framing take-offs. for example customer wants 100 2x8x16, 50 2x10x16 then 3200 RL 2x4's. What formula do they use to reach the 3200 LF.

Thanks

Hmm, I'm used to calculating board feet. In board feet calculations your example comes up 3466 bd ft. Sound like your RL might be similar. I'm curious too so I'll watch for more posts. RT.
