On the softlist report, on a framing material, when it says "Wall Stud (combined)   2"x4"x10' "  does that just refer to cripple pieces, blocking, etc. that would be cut from a 2x4x10?

Hi Tom,

 

My Material definition for "Wall Stud (combined)" reports on any vertical stud in a wall that is less than 6' in length and greater than the "min_lumber_length" variable (I think mine is set to 6"). Blocking is covered by another material definition. BTW you can choose any length stud you want to use for your "Wall Stud (combined)" by modifying the formula.

 

Phil

Thanks Phil.  So in the example that I gave above it would be any pieces that are less than 10' in length and not a total of all those pieces cut out of a 10' section?  So if there is a wall that has cripples cut at 23-1/2" and there is 8 of them then it should read "Wall stud (combined) 2x4x10 - 8 pieces" or would it be "Wall stud (combined) 2x4x10 - 2 pieces"?  It makes more sense if it was the latter.

It adds up all the lengths of vertical studs  that are greater than 6" and less then 6'. It then divides by 10' (My example uses 16' length for the 2x4.)
