Cut Optimizer
A free online cut list calculator that minimizes waste (scrap) and cost when cutting linear materials (pipes, tubes, bars, beams, angles, channels, cables, profiles)

Fully Online Solution

No need to install anything on your computer. We do all processing on our servers and all you need is internet browser.

Reliable Algorithm

Proven, fast and reliable algorithm. Now years in production and with zero open bugs, average optimization time is less than one second.

Simple Workflow

Create project, specify material (e.g. bar length, cut waste, price) and enter pieces you intend to cut. Press Run and cut list is generated in seconds.

Free & Premium

Premium membership brings more features and less restrictions, including higher number of items to cut. 7-days free trial is available.
Our Features

Stock Quantities

With this Premium feature you can define stock quantities for your input materials. Optimizer will try to use what's in stock and get the best from it.

If there's not enough material in stock, you can decide to ignore stock for some (or all) lengths to find out how much material you need to order.

Predefined Materials

Define material once (including stock quantity and price) and use it in any project.

Import Items to Cut

Instead of inserting items one by one, import them from Excel or CSV file.

Export Results

Export cutting list into PDF, Excel or simple text format for printing and further usage.

View Statistics

As a result of optimization, beside cutting list, statistics like utilization, total number of bars and total cost are available.
Numbers Talking

Fast and reliable optimization algorithm

With average utilization > 90%, and average optimization time less than 2 seconds, we can proudly confirm that our optimization algorithm has now been years in production, improved constantly and with more than 5000 optimizations per day we have zero open bugs in production.

Configure, Price & Quote

When defining material, specify the material price as well. When the optimization is finished, the statistics will also contain the total cost of the material. Use this cost as a good staring point when making a price quote to your customer.

4 ways to define price

Define price per bar length or weight or combination of these two.

High & Low Price

Consider some leftovers reusable or treat them all as waste.
