Hi,

Sorry for the response so late!

Calculation method for Polyboard

A = Panel surface (and Oversizing if present)
B = List of Hardware
C = Edges
D = Additional cost (Print Setup> Option> Add line) in project mode

Price = A + B + C + D

Calculation method OptiCut

A = Panel surface (and oversizing if present)
B = Edges
C = Cutting line (defined in panel materials)
D = off-Cuts (Tools-> Stock follow ups)

Price = A + B + C + D

I think that if you try to calculate your costs more specifically you could simply delete your cut and line price.
and make a 25% increase on your price of surffaces

hope that's helpful,

Cheers Alexandre

Hi,

I would just like to ask what the difference between the two costings in the edit panels & panel materials? It is possible to enter two different values (prices) for what is essentially the same material. What are the two different options used to calculate?

Also when it comes to pricing the prices that polyboard calculate are different to that of opticut. I understand that this is because opticut will only calculate the costs to cut and edge part including cutting costs per linear metre, whereas polyboard is the whole picture. However do the cutting and edging calculations in Opticut match that of polyboard? If not then the pricing shown by polyboard must be inaccurateImage1.jpgImage Enlarger

Kind regards

Tom
