Boardfoot Estimate (New Custom Feature)

xTimRicexTimRice Member Posts: 60 PRO
We make custom handmade furniture and a big part of the design process is estimating stock. Rough wood is commonly measured and purchased in "board foot" (abbreviated bdft, bf). I created this super simple feature to show the bf measure in the featurelist. 

The feature uses the part's volume to convert to bf. Optionally, you can use the 3d part bounds which is good for curved/tapered parts that will yield off cuts.
