Screen shot

When cutting out sheet material from plywood or aluminum plate, are you troubled like a puzzle?

With Cutting Planner, you do not have to rely on skilled craftsmen. We can eliminate the time to think about allocation and start working immediately.

Cutting Planner optimizes cutting layout when cutting materials in furniture manufacturing, sheet metal processing, and other manufacturing industries using shearing and panel saws. Calculate the layout that cuts them efficiently, such as glass, plywood, metal, plastic, coil material, other sheet materials, bars, pipes, tubes and other long materials.


  • A simple user interface that can be operated intuitively.
  • Used in machining to cut the plate material in a straight line like a shearing machine or a panel saw. (Guillotine cutting, Edge to edge, Rectangular Nesting)
  • The types and number of stock panels and parts are unlimited. We respond to large problems (memory dependent).
  • Corresponds to coil material.
  • Possible or impossible to rotate parts can be individually set.
  • It taking into consideration the saw kerf size and the maximum cutting length of the cutting machine.
  • Easier to know which part to cut from by the cutting assist line.
  • Print layout picture.
  • Link with other software by file input / output of XML and CSV format and command line option.
  • Support cutting optimization of one-dimensional (long material) materials.

Creating a cutting plan requires skilled experience and intense time. It is not an easy task. Academically this is a problem called "combinatorial optimization". In order to guarantee the optimum solution, there is no choice but to pick out all the patterns. The cutout pattern increases in a factorial fashion each time one type of member and original plate increases, and it becomes practically infinite if it enumerates everything.

Therefore, it is realistically impossible to output an optimal solution, even if you use a computer, it is a very difficult problem.

Therefore, in such a case, an algorithm that gives a certain degree of answer within a practical time is used. It is a genetic algorithm that is often used here, but it is not used in the Cutting Planner. This is because the process of randomly generating patterns enters, the result of calculation is not stable, even if the numerical yield is good, it becomes an unnatural pattern. To solve this problem, our software has developed an algorithm that outputs natural board diagrams close to the human sense by combining the experience gained from actual factory work and the advantages of computers.

Cutting Planner has already been utilized in various situations, from small workshops to famous enterprises.
