Wiring materials calculator?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Anyone have a link to a good electrical materials calculator? (Preferably of the free and online variety). I'm specifically trying to figure out aproximately how much wiring I need and how much of each type.

Also looking for circuit mapping tips.

I tried to attach a .pdf of my plan but I'm not sure if it will work since it's 29k and the max size is supposed to be 19.5k.

Thanks,

Ben

I have a wiring materials calc.. me

What you need to do is a take off. you have to measure the runs from your drawing figure the up and down part and come up with the lenghts. the if you want to estimate, you can use a means book to get the cost per foot and cost per device.

If you want software that will import your drawing and calc for you , I know of none, and if it is there you will pay out the ... hope things work out well for you.
