When drawing an 8" block foundation the block is 8" x 8" x 16" and in softest the program gives to the amount of sq ft and not the quantity of block. I can figure block by equation but is there a way to have softplan convert it

Add the Coverage of 1 Block and change the units to each.

I use the Block A for the formula for a 8"x8"x16" & 12"x8"x16" block count

 

I use the Block B for the formula for a 4"x8"x16" Solid Cap Block when I need the Slab to be 4" lower.

 

I use the Concrete/Block  for the formula for a 8"x8"x16" Header Block for a Stem Wall Foundation Slab and the Garage Foundation Slab.

 

I have the Foundation Wall Defined for each case.
