Using Mathematical Operations

Q.  Can Solid help calculate part sizes without having to use a calculator?
A.  Yes.  Each part size field can accept mathematical operations.

1)  Start a new job and place a cabinet on a Wall.

2)  Select that cabinet so you see its parameters on the sidebar.

3)  To illustrate using mathematical operations, let's change the width of the cabinet by adding 30 + 6 in the Width field itself.  Once you type in the formula, simply click the Enter key.

4)  Just as you can use the plus sign (+) for Addition, you can use the forward slash mark (/) for Division.

5)  You can also use the minus sign (-) for Subtraction and the asterisk (*) for Multiplication.
