I recently finished working on a cutting algorithm app for the iPad and iPhone called Smart Cutter, and wanted to share the app with every one hoping get some feedback from carpenters and wood workers. Smart Cutter finds the maximum number of small pieces cut from a larger sheet of paper with minimum scrap.

LumberJocks Scrap It Out #1: Announcement

10-13-2011 03:50 PM by Martin Sojka | 28 comments »
