Softlist FTG Width and Depth Variables reporting unusual no's?
SoftPlan Version:

Some ideas please!

The Footing_depth along with the Footing_wibth variable in the Slab Component “Slab Edge” is reporting some unusual numbers. For example in a formula with the Footing_depth variable alone Softlist returns a figure of 1980.01. Though my actual footing depth is 350mm?? (See Example below) Likewise footing_wibth returns a figure of 1540.01 though my actual footing width is 450mm??

I would expect Softlist to report the actual width and depth as specified in the drawing... Anyone able to help me better understand how Softlist is calculating these numbers??

Concrete Footings

I assume you want to report size of footings and cu. yds. of concrete?

See attached default Softlist standard detailed concrete formulas.

In your formula, the place

In your formula, the place you put footing depth is an area for calculating Quanity.   So no telling what it is calculating, when it needs footing_depth x footing_area to calculate a cubic foot, or the metric quanitity(guess there is a metric cubic foot).   to make it list the size you would put the info in the "Value"


The formula you have setup is measuring a mono footer on the edge of the slab, which I think you want.    If you have a stemwall footer or wall footer, the Material setup would be under wall, not slab.
