Orientation of Boards and Optimization – Cabinet Design Software
New Build Improving user interface on materials in Cabinet Design Software
The big change is to take you to the form where you size a new material right after defining it. Mostly – especially with sheet goods – you know these sizes and should just put them in the form.
The other improvement is to put a use – don’t use check box in the optimizer set up form. This does two things for you. First if you put a material – board in like floor for simple design purposes – want it to show but not go through the optimizer – un-check this in the optimizer layout tool. Or if you don’t want to optimize solid lumber just sheet hoods, un-check solids and they will be ignored.
The orientation and grain direction of the board are critical in getting a good optimization. So think about it as you design.
