1D Stock Cutter is the length cutting optimizer - fast, powerful, compact and easy to use software tool for cutting to length of any linear (one-dimensional) material: profiles, bars, extrusions, pipes, tubes, wood and so on. The program solves the so called One-dimensional Stock Cutting / Bin Packing Problem: optimizes the distribution of a large number of pieces having mostly different lengths amongst a number of uniform or different stock lengths/sizes.
Optimizer goal, as well as the main cutting technology settings, such as minimal reusable length, trim losses, piece gripping end, saw blade thickness - are adjustable. The main goal is to minimize either the overall material waste, or the associated material cost. Typically, 1DSC brings down material waste by a factor of 10 (from about 10% to about 1%) with respect to manual cut planning.
1D Stock Cutter supports: stock material inventory; part order/reference lists; automatic update of the inventory lists; data import and export in many formats; Metric and Imperial length/size units; network data sharing; data import and export via common ASCII text or CSV files with adjustable format. 1DSC import files can be created by MS Notepad or the other simple word processor, spreadsheet, database, or 3rd party program.
