Menu: [Worksheet]-[Add sheet] or [Worksheet]-[Change sheet properties]
If data has already been entered, switching between 1D / 2D is not possible. This is handled by adding and deleting sheets.
This software can manage separate worksheets for each type of stock plate. This is similar to the way a spreadsheet software can handle multiple sheets.
The name you give to a sheet is the name of the material and its thickness. Frequently used names can be registered in the "Stock panel type List" in the "Options" window. The thickness is also managed as a string, so you can add units to it. Sheet names cannot be duplicated. When adding a sheet name using [Worksheet]-[Import sheet from file], sequential numbers are automatically added to the duplicate sheet name.
If you have oriented panels and do not want to change the orientation of the parts panel, select "All cannot Turn". If you select "Individual Setting", a check box will appear in the parts panel list. Please note that if you change this option from "Individual Setting", you will not be able to undo the change.
Since editing functions are inevitably inferior to spreadsheet software, we recommend that you copy and paste what you have edited.
If you have many opportunities to enter the same data, please use the import / export function in CSV format.
It can be executed from the right click menu.
Click the field to sort. When sorting by size The data of the same size is displayed in blue letters.
You can specify that the parts of the same size will be merged by option.
When you enter a value that can not be handled, it is displayed in red letters and ignored during placement calculation.
Use the trimming function to specify the range where parts cannot be placed.
See [Options] - [Optimize] - [Number of digits after a decimal point].
Only the description field supports line breaks in cells. You can enter a line break in the cell with Ctrl + Enter.
Only the description field supports line breaks in cells. To enter a line break, press [Ctrl]+[Enter].
Note that the software you are importing/exporting to may not support line breaks in cells, such as CSV format.
See [Options]-[Optimize]-[Length Format]
You input size in consideration of processing it later.
Enter the size so that the pattern of the board is in a certain direction.
2D Only. You can set the expression such as width, height, the depth in [Options]-[General]-[Expression method with size].
If you set quantity of parts setting to blank, set it as 1.
If you set quantity of stocks setting to blank, it will be unlimited.
If you set to 1 if the quantity of "stock to be used first" is blank.
When multiple stocks panels exist, the parts panel placement calculation is automatically allocated to be more efficient, but by registering the stocks you want to consume first here, the stocks with the smallest area will be consumed first.
You can use the "stocks panel list" to register fixed length lumber and the "First usage Stocks list" to register scrap lumber and other lumber that you do not want to keep in inventory.
If leftover material is relatively large or can be saved for later use, it can be placed in the stocks panel.
This function allows for operations that not only prioritize yield but also inventory reduction.
For 2D placement, the checkboxes will appear in the parts panel list only if you have selected [Options]-[Optimize]-[Parts Turn]-[Individual Setting] in the sheet properties.
Check the checkboxes for parts panels that can be rotated. You can check the checkboxes by clicking with the mouse or by pressing the space key.
When importing CSV text that contains individual rotation settings, this option must be pre-selected or information will be missing. For text, rotatable = 1, non-rotatable = 0.
If you enter the unit price of the original plate as an estimation support function and select the "Print panel cost" option in Print, the unit price of parts panel is calculated based on the total price or area and yield of the original plate used at the time of printing. This does not affect placement calculations.
The parts panel cost is calculated by the following formula
Parts panel unit price = parts panel area / total stocks panel area including trimming * total stocks panel price

Specify an area where parts panel cannot be placed at the edge of the stocks panel.
Starts calculation of optimal cutting plan.
A stop button will report the present best result. When there is not a result, no displayed.
A calculation thread gives priority to other application.
When the length format is a decimal point, when the zoom factor is 100%, the figure of 1800 * 900 is rendered with 1800 * 900 pixels.
If the length format is feet inches, it follows Windows scaling settings.
Remnants list is showed in the area order.
The too small material can be omitted by [Options]-[General]-[Omission Size]
The number of the used Stocks is shown.
The list which couldn't be cut by numerical lack of Stocks or by other cause.
