Anyone found a good “cut-list” software program for the Mac?

Thanks in advance,
-Dan

I wonder how many people got Mac’s for Christmas?

At the same time, does anyone have a good cut-list program for the PC as well?

No recommendation, I just googled woodworking software Macintosh.

Bill, Cut List Plus is not. As for the Mac one, I just run Parallels desktop and run the windows version on the mac.

Sorry to not being helpful in your quest but to answer Bill’s first question, even if it can’t be truly considered as “getting a Mac for X’mas”, I got a friend of mine to swap her Toshiba laptop for a brand new iMac 20” and thus abandoning the Dark Side.

Also, one of my brethren is receiving his first computer ever tomorrow, a 24” iMac… the very same model my wife got last month. :o)

Now in comparison, my PowerBook G4 17” is starting to feel a bit old, too bad I have no money to spend in a new one.

Now I’m going to check Doug’s no-recommendation.

Doesn’t look like it does layouts, unfortunately. I also run cut list pro in a virtual machine and while it has the functionality, the user interface is just horrifying. I’ve played with the idea of developing a java version that would be cross platform but I don’t know if I want to take that time away from making sawdust. :)
