Hi all,

I am finding the edge banding assignment confusing in the Polyboard/Opticut custlist format. Allow me to explain:

The company I am hoping to cut my boards for me, needs a format as follows:

You would think this would translate well, but alas. The issue is that polyboard and opticut automatically rotates some (but not all) cuts depending on which measurement is longer, and then lists edging as LEFT | RIGHT | TOP | BOTTOM instead of assigning the edging to the measurement itself. 

My workaround has been to use the square brackets “[]” as seen next to the below 338.00 measurement but it’s not a great solution.

The software definitely has the info behind the scenes, but I just can’t get it into a workable format. Can anyone help?
