What is Cutting Planner?

CuttingPlanner is software that arranges multiple parts to be cut from acrylic plates, plywood, aluminum plates, steel plates, and other base plates using panel saws, running saws, shearing, and other methods. It is used in furniture manufacturing, steel plate andsheet metal processing, and a wide range of other fields.
Simply by inputting the base plate and material sizes, the software proposes a highly efficient cutting plan.
Calculation results can be viewed on a PC screen as a cutting layout diagram, which can be printed out for use as a drawing. It can also be used for estimation.
