Example. Calculate the weight of a Particle Board panel at size 300mm x 690 mm:
- Grab cubic weight of the required material from supplier:

- Modify or create a new BOM file with new MASS field:
Make sure ‘Format’ Field is set to 02|kg (lowercase) in order to get correct output.
Result in the BOM file is 2.15kg :
