Options - Optimize

Search Level

Sets the balance between computation time and optimization. The longer and more numerous the search, the better solution may be found. Since most problems are not permanently terminated, this setting will terminate the search as converged if no better solution is updated in the specified number of seconds than the current latest solution during the search.
Since the search is terminated by time, different results may be obtained for the same problem depending on the performance of the PC. In other words, the slower the CPU, the longer the setting should be. Since the program supports multi-core processors, the PC with more cores will have an advantage. Also, the same problem and the same PC may produce different results depending on the timing because of the multi-core processor support. Problems with fewer possible combinations may finish earlier than this time." 0" gives the fastest results.

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. It is automatically reset to a sufficient accuracy required at the time of calculation.

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

This setting item has been moved to "Sheet Properties".


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.


1D: The effective range of the value

Double the range of the table below


Decimal Precision 1 130000
Decimal Precision 0.1 13000
Decimal Precision 0.01 1300


2D: The effective range of the value

Maximum number of types of Parts and Stocks is about 30,000.
The number of parts and Stocks is up to about 2.1 billion.
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.
