Deryl MinnichQuestion: I have a screen shot of a tooling estimate spreadsheet that was included in a tooling estimating seminar I attended. I have tried to fill in the formulas to utilize it for myself to quote tools but the one thing I cant figure out is the CNC portion of the sheet.

The formula calls for ‘cut volume’, ‘# of details’, Machine run rate (3″/hr.) [with a given number of 10] & a formula for machine time (cut volume x # of details / machine run rate)

Once you get the machine time you can calculate the cost by multiplying it by the amount per hour charged. for example it the volume was 25 & there were 2 details then it would be ((25 x 2)/10) x $95.00/hr. = $474.00 The only thing I cant figure out is how to get the cut volume. Any ideas?
