Extrusion for Quantities

Hopefully this is a simple Q. for a Monday morning… Is there a general consensus on extrusion direction for consistent quantities when using the built in Report Generator for framing section & length?

I occasionally trip myself up by extruding components along the X axis, which messes up my report. (I know the fix). I think I’m correct that all Profile Builder extrusions use XY for the profile and Z for the extrusion length. Is this the same for other extensions?
