Design software for material layout to reduce waste
Avoiding three problems running the optimizer.
One major feature in our Professional version is the design software for material layout.
A user wrote in with a question about a problem he was having trying to optimize his project.
I put together this short video of me analyzing what might have gone wrong.
The source of problems with the optimizer – evidenced by red highlight boxes around part names — is almost always one [or more] of three things.
- The material exists but is not sized with the stocking function.
- Wrong orientation for a board.
- Wrong direction for the grain.
Watch the video.
So if you have questions or problems send me an email.
