Free Cut List Software

I found this software and decided to post so others can benefit from it if desired.

The software is named Cutlist Optimizer, available as an app or for use on line at: Cutlistoptimizer.com It is free to download or use on line, and there is a cost Upgrade if desired, but I haven't found that necessary.

The aspects of this that I find very useful are:
It permits you to input the "Stock Sheet" sizes of wood you have on hand, any size board length or width,
Works with fractional measurements,
Makes allowances for blade kerf size,
Provides and ideal cutting sequence for best results,
Provides the results which can be printed or saved as an Adobe PDF, or a JPG photo,
there are additional features in the free version, and this software is very easy to use as you explore it.

In my case, I input three Stock Sheets or boards, two at 7" - one at 75" & the other at 45, and a 12" by 38.5" board, then the many "Panels" or parts / components I need for a small project.
The resulting report didn't utilize the third stock board at 7 X 45, and the report shows the waste that will be created from the cut stock;

The above is a bit faded, sorry, but I saved as a PDF then converted to a JPG photo for this post.
If you give it a try I believe you'll find it handy.
