Carpenter Cut - Optimal cutlist diagram for iPad/iPhone

1010 days ago by SmartCutter | 7 comments »

After my previous post here, I got numerous feedback and great ideas from professionals on this site on how to optimize the cutlist diagram to make it useful for professional wood workers. This lead me to develop “Carpenter Cut” app for iPad/iPhone devices. It goes like this: Start with a sheet of plywood (e.g. 48×96), tell it the dimensions and quantity of each part you want to cut from it. Specify the kerf (size for your saw blade (0.125 is the default)), and indicate gr...

1487 days ago by daltxguy | 40 comments »

Often requested and finally here! I’ve finally changed the Sketchup cutlist4.1 plugin to show the partslist by sub-assembly based on the nested components in your model. I’ve uploaded cutlist4.1.0.6pre You’re really going to want to delete the old version completely before installing this version because the structure of the plugin has changed completely. The ruby script is now called ‘cutlist.rb’ and it’s really just a stub with all of the main code...

Operation Holtzapffel #3: Lumber Acquired

2369 days ago by Damian Penney | 9 comments »

Made another trip to PALS for the rest of the lumber, and seeing as my lumber rack isn’t wide enough most of it is on the floor or just propped up at the moment. Here’s all the 8/4 stock waiting to be butchered. I ran all my stock through Cutlist Plus and here’s what it came up with, not too much waste which is nice (and I’ll use whatever is left over eventually anyway) You can click the Cutlist Pic for a bigger view. Some parts are doubled up because I n...

Operation Holtzapffel #2: Cutlists

2374 days ago by Damian Penney | 5 comments »

One thing I’m awful at is taking a cutlist to the lumberyard and figuring out which boards to buy, I either end up with too little or too much. Yesterday I’d picked up the boards for the base, figuring I’d build that first then swing by and get the stock for the top. I’d heard some good things about Cutlist Plus so figured I’d use it to see how best to cut the pieces for the base from the stock I’d bought. Turns out if I use the pieces I bought for the b...
