Shop Installed Option

The Advanced Duct version 4.1.2 will have the Installed in Shop feature. This feature was available to Classic FabShop users.

The option allows users to designate the current item will be installed on another item during the fabrication process. This will increase the item fabrication labor by a percentage, a flat value, or both.

When an item is marked as “Shop Installed” in Takeoff, add a percentage of the Fab labor and a set amount of labor time to the item's overall fabrication labor.
