I’m trying to create a cutlist for a panel bed. I want to use plywood for the panels but I can’t get Cutlist in Sketchup to recognize the panels as plywood and instead creates a cutlist for multiple pieces of solid wood. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to specify the material as plywood?

The component name for the pieces that are plywood need to contain one of the words in the ‘sheet material words’ box. So….either rename your components or add some unique word from the component names to this field and rerun.
