StairDesigner is similar, but you would utilise instead the DXF post processor and load part by part 2D DXF files into NC-HOPS. This post processor also comes with a suite of configurable parameters to mirror your way of working.
If you are using a nesting CNC, consider adding OptiNest into the workflow, which sits in between Polyboard/StairDesigner and NC-HOPS. It is an industrial level nesting solution that includes labels and stock/off-cut management.
If you are using a point to point CNC, you will be cutting your parts on a saw before going to CNC. It is vital you use some kind of cutting optimisation software to save very quickly on material costs and cutting time. We offer OptiCut that works with either a manual saw or CNC saw, with its own set of post processors.
