No offence but I tried that program and found it utterly clumsy. No way to import a list of pieces, no sheet good type or thickness and no connection to design programs like sketchup.

In sketchup there is an extension called cutlist that has all those features. No need to type the piece sizes in by hand and no need to do a separate file for each thickness and/or type of plywood.

@philba: you’re right it is basic and has its limits. I had tried to use the sketch-up extension but I didn’t have my pieces built as components so it didn’t work. This software was a good middle ground from doing the layout by hand and having a suitable model built in sketch-up. Thanks for watching.
