Intro to Recipes

Recipes can be used for various different functions to achieve various different results. The main benefits are the ability to:

  1. Drop in a group of items quickly

  2. Link one takeoff measurement to a group of items (e.g.: one wall measurement connecting all the components in the wall)

  3. 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 recipes, we suggest you start on the introductory video below.

If you're familiar with recipes and would like to know about some advanced ways to use this feature, see:
