Hi SlickDesigns,

Alex has assumed you've got an activated version of Polyboard and can output this file yourself, and tweak the settings.

When set up correctly you can import this cut list to OptiCut.

However, the best way to do it is with a fully activated version of Polyboard and the same for OptiCut. The integration is automatic.

As an alternative, we can as an extra option to the CabinetFile service provide you with a file in OptiCut's native format. This would be free of charge. You would just load that into OptiCut and optimize.

However, you would still need to buy OptiCut. There's no point you trying any of these options until you have OptiCut as you will only see a cutting map with no dimensions in the demo version of OptiCut. You cannot use it for production purposes.

If you want to see how that would look, at the bottom of the OptiCut download page there are some sample OptiCut files to load up, plus sample cutting maps. Thanks...

Hello,

I think this is due to a configuration problem in importing or exporting the file,

can you try with this file

I export in opticut 5 on PB

PBsettformat.pngImage Enlarger

and import in default under opitcut

PBsettformat-1.pngImage Enlarger

All the best, Alex

Hello all,

im having trouble inporting my cutlist.txt provided through the premium support subscription.
