Hi guys,

I did a search of the board and it seems the last time this topic was brought up was several years ago. I currently do all my designs in SolidWorks as I’ve been using this CAD software for 15 years now. I was wondering if anyone knew of any software I could export my parts in to for a cut list and sheet optimizer. Any cut list program would probably work for me even if I have to input each size manually. Any recommendations?

I’ve used Maxcut for a few years. There are, of course, a free version and a pay version. Free one works for me. The pay version does more billing and invoicing stuff that I don’t need. A few annoyances but you can’t beat it for the price.

I too use Maxcut. I highly recommend it.

My Dad used to use Cutlist Plus. George Vondriska from Woodworkers Guild of America also recommended it in a training session at Weekend with WOOD last weekend.

It would be worth a look.

not used in a while, but I used sketchup and had the cutlist plug in. Not fully featured like the fully cutlist product but pretty good.
