Occasionally some of our North American training content will use the term "recipes" in the place of "assemblies", there is no difference other than the term and so please think "assembly" when you hear "recipe".
Intro to Assemblies
Assemblies can be used for various different functions to achieve various different results. The main benefits are the ability to:
Drop in a group of items quickly
Link one takeoff measurement to a group of items (e.g.: one wall measurement connecting all the components in the wall)
Convert unit of measure - from the units you measure in, to the units you order in (e.g.: m2 of plaster converting to sheets of plaster)
If you are new to assemblies, we suggest you start on the video below which is an introduction. If you're familiar with assemblies, skip ahead to the videos further below.
The ability to round the final quantity of assembly items is available on all assemblies. You can learn all about it here.
