yeah its safe. its pretty easy to figure out – you just select all the components you want to include and it makes the list from that. theres a useful help file that goes along with it. it does take some consistent naming of components to use it to its full potential though (you’ll see).

Another thing about cutlist is that it uses the ‘material’ name to differentiate between boards and sheet goods – using the ‘Sheet Material Words’ in the opening window.

Took me a while to figure this so that I could create a cutlist for bookcases made out of veneered mdf sheets rather than boards.

I had to use PaintBucket to set the material for each component, and enter part of the material name in Sheet Material Words, before I got what I wanted.
