Hi Humberto, it is possible to export the cutting list but this isn’t optimised. To do that, go to the main menu Optimization > Cutting List > Export:

opticut_cutting_list_optimisation.pngImage Enlarger

For saws like the Haffner, we can offer to set up a custom file format that exports the cutting list sorted and optimised.

By this I mean setting up a simple Post Processor that would export a file similar to a cutting list, but sorted in the same order as the parts cutting order.

This is a specific development we would charge for either on its own for current users, or as part of an order. Best, Stefan

Hello Ness, my question is regarding the following statement in your website about Opicut integration with CNC Saws:

“Please also note that some saws do not offer full CNC automation but can accept the output as a spreadsheet. Haffner Murat saws are one example of this set up. Where this is the case, OptiCut can generate the optimisation results as a spreadsheet to load into the saw”

Best regards,

Hi Humberto,

Sorry but I’m not sure I understand you question as Opticut doesn’t produce the optimisation as a spread sheet but as cutting maps.

These can printed or exported as DXF files but not as a spread sheet.

I attach a couple of example files.

All the best,


Humberto Gongora
