To set up multiple coatings for the same product, please refer to the example:

There is a room with 10'' by 10'' and needed to be coated 3 times using the SAME adhesive.

 

1. From Product tab->create an adhesive, change the layout type to add-on item.

2. Right-click on the material->view modify->change the waste-addon ratio to 200%. Click on OK.

3. Assign the adhesive to the room, click on the Estimate tab, the program will show the quantity as 300 SF.

 

If the adhensive needs to be calculated by container, say by pail. And each pail contains 200 SF.

1. Right-click on the material->view modify, check "sell by", type in "sell by pail" and 200 SF per pail. Also make sure the waste-addon ratio to 200%. Click on OK.

 

 

2. Assign the adhesive to the room and click on "Estimate" to recalculate. The quantity is 2 pails (400 SF).
