Speed and Yield
Sets the balance between speed and yield.


From the leftmost of the bar
1 - Memory saving and speed first. Suitable for single processor.
2- Suitable for single processor.
3- 2-core machines should be at this level or higher to take advantage ofthePC's capabilities.
4 - Four-core machines should be at this level or higher to take advantageofthe PC's capabilities.
5 - Takes up to 5 times longer than 4, but results are often the sameas4.


Usually 4 or 5.


Minimum Search Time

This is a setting to increase the number of searches for problems thatendinstantaneously. In some cases, such as when there are only a few partspanels,the search may be completed sooner than this time. 2 to 3 seconds isstandard.On the other hand, it is possible to make the search take a long time,but theresults will be the same or much the same after a long calculationtime.


Length Format and Precision

  • Decimal
    e.g. 123.4 mm; 12.3"
    Please assume the unit of numerical value freely, such as millimeter or inch.

  • Feet and decimal inches
    例:10' 3.5"

  • Fractional inches
    e.g. 12-31/32"

  • Feet and fractional inches
    e.g. 12' 3-63/64"

The denominator of fraction inch corresponds to 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64,128within the setting accuracy.
Unit symbols in feet · inch correspond to the following. Unit sign infeet[ft], ['], ['] Inch unit symbol [in], ["], ["]
In case of inch input, the symbol on the right end can be omitted.



Sets the minimum unit. For decimal points, set the number of digits forthedecimal portion. The range of valid values (see below) will change."Lengthsettings such as "Saw kerf size" and "Cut table length" also followthissetting. For parts and stock panel data input, if the data is outside thevalidvalues, the text color of the data turns red and the data is ignored intheplacement calculations. Please set the accuracy to a level sufficient foryourneeds, as higher accuracy will require more processing time and memory.


Changing the "Length format" and "Precision" willnotconvert data that has already been entered.


Small stocks usage rate

The number is from 0 to 100. The larger the number, the more priority isgivento the stocks panel with the smaller area. The smaller size is assumedforreasons such as lower unit cost and easier handling. The setting can bechangedwhile checking the actual placement calculation results.


"First usage stocks" specifies the stocks panel to be consumedfirst,regardless of this setting. This is used when you want to dispose oftheremaining material inventory.


Cut table length

Specify the maximum size the cutting machine can cut.
For example, if the board is 4200*600 but the panel saw can only cut upto1850. If nothing is entered, there is no limit (see Valid Value Ranges,OtherMaximum Lengths below). Horizontally long materials will be dividedanddisplayed based on this value.


Enter a value in the format based on the "Length Format" and"Precision"settings.


Saw kerf size

Specifies the cutting width of the saw. For shearing, this value is 0. Enteranumeric value in the format based on "Length Format" and "Precision"above.


Integrare Parts of the same size

If checked, parts panels of the same size are merged together in theplacementcalculation.



Sets whether parts panels can be rotated or not, etc. See the link.


The effective range of the value

Maximum number of types of Parts and Stocks is about 65,000.
The total number of Parts and Stocks is about 4.2 billion.
The scale that you can calculate really depends on the memory capacity.(32bitWindows = less then 2GB, 64bit = less then 4GB)
Even can support enough large-scale problem in practical use.
Can treat the long materials such as coil materials.
