For Instance I have a fiber pull box with 50 LF of slack in it, how could I have the automated quantities pick up the 50 LF of fiber pay item that would be attached to the pull box and not a 50 LF line?
The way I would do this is to simply append a fiber payitem to your pullbox cell using the "Edit Signal" tool. I haven't upgraded to FDOT 10.11 yet so unfortunately my Takeoff Manager will not pick up multiple payitems for the Signal Items.
I have the update and can add multiply pay items but still have to do work arounds for things like slack for fiber as the automated quantities does not compute 50 LF of slack without there being a 50 LF drawn line.
This is how I've got it to work. I've also had success with adding the "PCGIT" Item Type and manually entering the payitem that way.
This functionality is being added for the next release of FDOTCONNECT for late summer/early fall.
Specifically which functionality? The only (major) issue I have run into with automated quantities is 10.10 will not generate multiple pay items appended to a single "Signal" Item Type. I have been notified by the FDOT CADD office that this has been resolved in version 10.11
