Enter the desired finish length (in) into the Braid Material Length Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Braid Material Length. 

Braid Material Length Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Braid Material Length.

BML = FL * 2.5

  • Where BML is the Braid Material Length (in)
  • FL is the desired finish length (in) 

How to Calculate Braid Material Length?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Braid Material Length.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the desired finish length (in). 
    • The desired finish length (in) is given as: 50.
  2. Finally, calculate the Braid Material Length using the equation above: 

BML = FL * 2.5

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

BML = 50 * 2.5 = 125 (in)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

desired finish length (in) = 75

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

BML = FL * 2.5 = ?
