## How to Calculate Braid Length

The formula to calculate the Braid Material Length (BML) is:

$\text{BML} = \text{FL} \times 2.5$

**Variables:**

Variable | Description |
---|---|

BML | Braid Material Length (in inches) |

FL | Desired Finish Length (in inches) |

#### Calculation Guide

**Determine the Desired Finish Length (FL):**This is the final length you want for your braid.**Multiply FL by 2.5:**This factor accounts for the material used in the braiding process.**Result is the Braid Material Length (BML):**

Example Calculation:

**Desired Finish Length (FL):**10 inches**Step 1:**Determine FL (10 inches)**Step 2:**Multiply by 2.5 (10 * 2.5)**Step 3:**Result is 25 inches

**Example**

Desired Finish Length (inches) | Braid Material Length (inches) |
---|---|

10 | 25 |

15 | 37.5 |
