Hi,
I was wondering, when calculating the amount spent on small parts would we could the full amount purchased or the amout used on the robot.
Example: we purchase the minimum length of akuminim which costs $50 for 10 ft, we only used 5ft for our robot, would we count only $25 because thats all we used for our robot or would we have to count the whole cost?

As per Rule K1, ‘Outside Sources - SPI Catalog’, 4th bullet:
If you use only a portion of what you buy from Small Parts, you may prorate the dollar amount used to the smallest quantity listed for purchase in the catalog. For example, if you buy 5’ of rod which could have been purchased by the foot, but end up using only 6’, you may calculate the amount used as the purchase price for one foot (the minimum amount that you could have purchased in order to build your robot.)
