Our parts tool makes it easy to generate or find a list of materials needed for a project for ordering or producing submittals. All pricing shown is list price. A multiplier must be obtained and applied from a local wholesaler/distributor for accurate pricing.

Update 2017-01-27 - v2.4
Feature Addition: Region Price Listings
Due to differences in the foreign exchange market and other market conditions, we have separated the pricing into the regions for USD and CAD. List pricing have also been separated and our exports will also indicate which pricing was used. Please make sure to select your correct region when creating your estimation.
Update 2017-01-16 - v2.3.1
Enhancement: Pricing Update
Prices used to be stored in a project, but along with the new pricing adjustment, we have also made it so saved projects will update to the new pricing when imported to ensure accuracy in material cost.
Update 2016-04-19 - v2.3.0
Feature Additions: Row Reordering & User Notes
Two frequently requested features have been the ability to reorder parts in the Estimation list and the option to add notes to a specific part. Due to the popular demands, we have finally implemented these two features into the QCE.
As these are new features, we definitely would like to hear if you have any feedback so that we can further improve the tool to suit your needs.
Update 2015-08-28 - v2.2.17
Text Import with special characters
We were notified that including special characters on quantity when using the text import would break the import. An example is "15'". The extra apostrophe would break the import. We have now put in a fix that omitts any special characters included in the quantity field and the imports should now be handled properly again.
Update 2015-06-15 - v2.2.16
Custom Tool hours
A bug involving tool hours not updating when adding new parts was found and we have now put a fix in place. When adding a new part, it will recalculate the tools and reset the hours. Any custom tool hours need to be re-entered.
Update 2015-05-12 - v2.2.15
Share QCE Bug

Share QCE Options
A new feature that allows you to quickly share a project with someone has been added. When you're logged in, you're able to save a project, and any saved projects can be quickly shared with other people by sending them a specific link, emailing them the link or copying a project code that they can load the project themselves at a later point.
Bug Fix 2015-03-26 - v2.2.13
Labor Time - Bug fix on quantity change
When changing quantity, the labor hours were giving an incorrect calculation of total labor hours. It would still calculate correctly upon refreshing the page, but the automatic calculation without a page load was incorrect. We have now patched this bug and the labor time is now correct when adjusting quantity in the "Selected Parts" list.
Bug Fix 2015-01-15 - v2.2.12
Text Import - Quantity with spaces
If a quantity in the Import text option had a space in it, it would give a "Success" message but in fact nothing was imported. We have now added a way to make sure these extra spaces are removed during the import so that your parts can safely be imported as expected.
Bug Fix 2015-01-12 - v2.2.11
Text Import issues with Excel
In the past we've received reports about issues importing parts from an Excel document. The problem came from an extra line break that you get from copying over a parts list from Excel and it was then mismatched with the quantities of parts. This problem is now fixed, you no longer have to manually remove that last extra line that it puts in the textbox.
Bug Fix 2014-12-17 - v2.2.10
Display issues in Selected Parts list.
Images, dimensional data and additional notes were showing the wrong information. It has now been corrected to show the right content.
Bug Fix 2014-12-16 - v2.2.9
Saved Projects - Storage Issue
We discovered that there were some limitation in the database that prevented very large projects (the example we worked with had 600+ parts) from saving properly. The bug has been fixed and you should be able to store much larger projects now and also import them properly as well.
Tools Tutorial issue
An issue where closing the Tutorial on the Tools tab cause the default hours not to apply to labor factor has been fixed. The labor factor should now be properply applied.

Bug Fix 2014-12-04 - v2.2.7
Submittal Labeling Issues
We had some issues with dimension labeling that incorrectly labeled the sizes as inches ([in]) for pipesb> when the numbers were given in millimeters ([mm]). The labeling issues have now been corrected.
Excel File Export - Price rate
After an update we did previously, it seems the price rate for tools were incorrectly exported to $0/hr. We hotfixed this issue thanks to receiving reports about this issue last week. As always, we appreciate and encourage you to report bugs if you find any!
Bug Fix 2014-10-21 - v2.2.6
Case Sensitive Inputs
Quick Add and Text import of parts were case sensitive and would fail to import parts. We have now changed it so that these inputs are no longer case sensitive. It will not recognize for example 2612539sz or even 2612539sZ as 2612539SZ.
Bug Fix & Update 2014-09-30 - v2.2.5
Logo blocking exports
There have been issues with uploading a company logo and when the logo can't be found, it prevents the system from exporting your estimation as an Excel file. We have made corrections to the logo update feature, please give it a go and let us know if you're able to upload a logo now. In addition to that, we've made it so the export is not dependent on whether or not it can find the company logo.
Also, there is now a "Remove Logo" button if you simply do not want a logo attached to your file.
Text Import issues
A bug where more quantities were entered than parts would fail the import without giving any error messages. We have added a check for when this occurs and it will provide an error message when it happens.
Bug Fix 2014-09-29 - v2.2.4
Empty tools tab issue
We had some issues with tools calculations not running in certain circumstances. This issue should have been fixed. If you still have problems with it, please contact us as soon as possible so we can correct this issue.
Bug Fix & Updates 2014-09-28 - v2.2.3
Project Info fixes
After adding project details in last update, the information was not properly stored in saved projects. This has now been corrected. The information you enter will be saved to your projects and additionally, when you Import a project, the information will properly be input. Clearing an estimate now will also empty those input fields.
Tool fixes & enhancements
Tools tab had some issues with persistance, where refreshing a page would not retain the tools information. Saving a project or exporting it also did not keep the tools information due to this issue. These issues have now been corrected and the information you export/save will properly be imported.
In addition to these fixes, we've also improved the interaction on the tab. In the past after entering a manual rate or custom hour, you would have to click the input field again to adjust the numbers. The cursor will now stay in the same input field so you can keep adjusting it as needed. The Tools tab tutorial has been adjusted as well as some fixes we did in the past broke the progression.
A few back-end optimization measures have been performed to improve the QCE.
Minor UI fixes
Some minor UI corrections done to the QCE, such as selected parts not getting cleared when clearing estimate.
Bug Fix 2014-09-12 - v2.2.2
Tools Tab Custom Hours & Rate Interval
We added the options of editing custom hours and changing the rate intervals (hours, day, week, and month) but these adjustments were not reflected on the Excel Exports. This has been hotfixed. Please let us know if anything is still not functioning properly with this.
Bug Fixes & Updates 2014-08-07
The "Tools" tab had some major overhaul. It is now possible to switch the rates to a daily, weekly, monthly or flat manual rate to accomodate for how you will be renting your tools. In addition, you can now also manually adjust the hours needed for a tool. Bench Style Fusion Machine has also been added. It will be present under tools whenever Inline Fusion Assistance is available and the hours can be manually adjusted. Along with these changes, we've also added some information about the tools. Clicking the (i) on the top right corner of each tool will show the tools available.
Import Text Adjustments
We've done some improvements to the Import Text feature to allow parts to be recognized in our system.
Submittals - Project Details
The option to add Company Info along with who the bid is for has now been added to the Submittals. The details you enter under the "Project Info" tab will be included in the Submittal as long as you have entered information there.

Bug Fixes & Updates 2014-07-01
Saving & Overwriting projects
Overwrite feature has been added. If you save a project with the same Project Name it will ask you if you wish to overwrite. If you don't want to overwrite an existing project, you can close and save it under a new Project Name.
Some optimization has been done for Excel export that was limiting the export to a set number of parts in the estimation.
Company Logo Upload
The option to upload a company logo to be included in your Excel exports have been added. You can find this option under the "Project Info" tab.
Added patch notes and information showing when the last update to the tool was made. This helps us communicate any changes we've done to the patch notes recently. A lot of things go on behind the scenes that might not be visible on the tool and this helps us deliver that information.
