Drawing a take off


'Takeoff' is the process of creating Shapes from a plan to generate Quantities. Takeoff is done in Cubit Estimating by assigning a Result Type to an Item to specify how that Item calculates its Quantities and drawing on a Plan to generate a Shape.


To measure off the Plan:

 1. Select the Result for the item you want to measure.
