The Cut Optimizer is a tool that finds the best fit when cutting linear materials and makes waste as small as possible. All that is done in just a few seconds (or sometimes minutes) depending on the number of input items. It can also calculate price so, when working for the clients you will very soon know how much it will cost you and make you competent between your competitors. When doing some hobby work, it will ensure you won’t unnecessary lose your money.
The basic principle is simple: you configure material, enter lengths you need to cut and run the optimization.
Of course, there is more. You can define materials you work with on a daily basis and use them easily in your projects. You can organize your data in projects and keep it on our servers, available any time on any device (including mobile phones and tablets). In paid plans you get more items to cut and more options. For more details about the functionalities take a look into pages that describe specific functionality.
You may notice that there’s no way to set units in the application. This is expected. The point is to use same units across the whole application (millimetres, inches etc.). All measures (item lengths, configuration etc.) should use the same. Results will be in that very same unit then. The same goes for currencies.
Remember to always do a manual check after calculation has been performed. Check if number of input and output number of items is the same and of the same size.
