OptiCut 6.05b is now available for download on our website, and includes the following updates:

Edge bander compensation

If the edge bander removes all or part of the edging thickness, OptiCut will remove only the complement (3 options are available to manage this). More information is available in the Help Centre here: OptiCut net versus overall dimensions.

2-cutting-list-window-e.pngImage Enlarger

  • Net (shown in round brackets) and overall [in square brackets] dimensions can now both be displayed on the labels, as a reminder net/overall are dimensions without/with edging or oversizing respectively

  • Ability to display and print multiple references on the cutting patterns

5-multiple-reference-display-e.pngImage Enlarger

  • New edging overlength option, useful to accurately calculate the edging required as most edgebanders require some additional edging lead-in to work

  • Add multiple references and company logo to your labels
  • And lots more
