Hi Ness,

Thank you, premium sounds good 🙂 

I wrote opticut postprocessor for new SCM saws that runs new version of “wincut” now called mestro cut. Its very diferent uses kind of xml format, header , folders, label data, LST files are nov XMIX files and 001,002 files are now 001.xprg 002.xprg and so on on but the cutting sequence is simmilar.

here is the tested post developers can implement it in to new verrsion of opticut.

Looks like developers are too bussy  🙂

code is probably not showing right so please download it from attachment

Hi I read your problems at polyboard forum at 
I made you solution and I can help with anything 🙂
I am cad cam specialist for SCM machines, I like to help people.
I wrote a report file that has .BAT extention , it will be generatet with polyboard PP export with files. then you click on it and “WUALA” you have ready made csv , to import in to maestro for nesting with all corect file naming and so on.
FOLLOW these steps:

step1-1.pngImage Enlarger

open formating of PP Report and write this in to it EXACTLY(also in attachment) line by line with option. IF you see or anything in this <> pull it from left side menu:
@ECHO OFF &SETLOCAL enableDelayedExpansion &SET "filename=
<File Name>
"&echo [PARTPROGRAMNAME]=!filename:~0,-4!_output.pgmx;[CODE]=
 <Piece References>
Then klik ok and you shoul see this line

step2-1.pngImage Enlarger

name the report file name how you want but (best is “GENERATE_CSV.BAT) it has to have .BAT estention so you can easy click and run it.
Generate pro pp files you should see these preview or report file like this 

step3-1.pngImage Enlarger

then yor files are generated like this 

step4-1.pngImage Enlarger

last step double klik on .bat file and it will generate .csv file ready for your maestro. you should see this (extra csv file)

step5-1.pngImage Enlarger

here is the preview of csv file generated

CSV-preview-1.pngImage Enlarger

i added only nesesearly fields if you need more like with and hight deph let me know . but it should read automaticaly. 
sorry for my english
