Hi Tom,

 

On the last project you posted I can see 3 materials with 3 different thicknesses wink

 

All tests done work perfectly, maybe you missed an option somewhere ?!

Hi,

It would seem that opticut is keeping the orientation of certain pieces. I have another model that is giving very inefficient results. I have attached both the model and the opticut file.

Hi Alex,

I attached both the model and the Opticut file in the first post. I haven’t received an email?

Kind regards

Tom

Have you received my mail?

Can you give my your Opticut file? (in a zip folder for upload here)

Hi Alex,

I have tried this but has made no difference. It seems as though the pieces that have been rotated shouldn’t be. But nothing I change in the parameters makes any difference?

Kind regards

Tom

Hi tom, 

You recently changed the Maximum Recut level?

https://wooddesigner.org/forum…..in-strips/

Can you change this value to 3 or 4 ?

All the best, Alexandre

Hello,

I have sent a model to Opticut and the results are confusing. Opticut is using more sheets than required and I have no idea why? The model I have attached shows 22mm MRMDF that could easily be cut out of one sheet. However Opticut is splitting them over two. This is also happening on other models and materials. Changing the parameters does not seem to make any difference.

Kind regards
