Configura Tech Tip:
Quoting a Fixed Carriage Around an Obstacle


Step 1. Place the fixed carriage in the system the same length as the movable carriages.

**Do not quote a system leaving the building column under a full length carriage. This will render an incorrect dollar figure as well as misrepresent the way the system will ship.

Step 2. Left click on the yellow square located on the back of carriage and shorten the carriage to the point that it doesn’t interfere with the obstacle.

Step 3. Create another fixed carriage the length required to fill the new, empty space. Place the shorter carriage on top of the track in the correct location. Continue to place shelving on carriages.
