Softdrill NL Space Out Calculator

Tired of puzzling which pipes to run from an available inventory in order to achieve the desired space out length?  Input the available pipe lengths and the required total length and Softdrill NL Space Out will calculate the optimum selections – ordered by gap with the target length – within seconds!  Alternatively, the program can also be used to figure out the optimum length for a dedicated space out pup joint if the target length cannot be approached close enough.

A detailed explanation of the program and how to use it can be found here.

Space Out is a FREE utility program available for download by all registered visitors.  Log in or register for an account on this website and download the program to start using it.

There are two options to download: the Windows Installer installs Space Out on your computer. It creates a Windows menu entry, a desktop short-cut and associates the .soc file extension with the program (double click file to open program).  The Zip File can be downloaded and extracted to any folder.  This is ideal if you cannot install the program on a computer because of administrative restrictions or if you just wish to run it a from a USB stick.
