Thanks. Looks like this free version of the software limts to 5 total
pieces. I need 50+ for this project. Are there any free versions that
allow up to 50 or more? I just want to build some nice cabinets for my
garage shop and want to limit waste.
None that I have seen. However the Cut list plus program works better than
any it its price range. Another program that you might look at is
www.sheetlayout.com . That program works pretty well but will make CutList
Plus look even better. It also has evaluation limits.
A big advantage to these type programs is that they also work with "regular
boards" as you can indicate what sizes you have on hand and you can use the
programs to help determine how much material to buy.
Thanks guys. I'm not looking to use this software all the time which would
warrant buying a complete version. And the problem also is that this one
project that I want to do needs a fair amount of pieces.
Are there any services that will provide a panel optimized cut list for a
single fee without having to buy a software package?
Or anyone here on this group that does have this software that will help
others do up a sheet layout cut list?
I tried it and it worked pretty good. Not a ton of frills. But should do
just fine for what I need. I'm assuming all measurements are decimal of
whatever form of measurement you use.
I just fooled with it a bit. I'll work on putting my entire cut list into
the program and see what comes up.
Yes, there is such a program. I'm sure someone will provide the link.
Personally, I find it rather cumbersome to use. Instead I keep a pad
of graph paper and scissors in the shop to cut out the pieces and
arrange them onto the graph paper. I like to use 1/4" square graph
paper and each square can represent one square foot or one square
inch, depending on the project. Sometimes I will glue sheets together
(carpenter's glue works fine).
Try the same sort of thing using DeltaCad. Draw a rectangle in one
step to size for the plywood, and others for the pieces. Move them
around to suite your taste within the "plywood" rectangle,and print
out when done. Allow the kerf for each one-side length and width to
layout easily, snapping to each other; just remember on which side to
cut when using real plywood. Do dimensioning[ just as simple] to have
dimensions printed out on the scale pattern on 8.5 x 11, and you're
