Project Options

This dialog allows to select what information will be included into the output reports.

Cut List

This checkbox allows including the list of cut locations for each cut on the stock.

Graphical Image of the Layout

1DCutX can generate the image of the layout and insert it into each spreadsheet. The image is very helpful tool for the visualising of the actual cuts and parts placement.

Parts Info

This checkbox includes a table for each layout that describes the part IDs, the length and location of the part on the layout.

Include Layouts Matrix

This checkbox includes a table / matrix of the stocks and number of the parts cut from these stocks. It helps the cutting operator to know at a glance how many parts to cut from each stock.

There are two choices to select the orientation of the matrix. The first orientation has list of stocks along Y axis that means each row has one stock and all parts are in columns. The second choice provides list of stocks along X axis that means each stock is located in a separate column and parts are in rows.

Output Borders Around Tables

When this option is activated it draws the single solid border around all cells in all report tables generated during the calculation.

Use standard fractions (1/2, 1/4, 1/8, etc.) for all fractional values

This option forces the all job parameters (saw kerf, trims, cross-section), lengths of stocks and parts to be rounded to the nearest standard fraction such as: 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32 and 1/64. If the option is un-checked then all fractional values will be used as they are specified.

Sort Order of the Summary Report

The summary report is very helpful for the financial assessment of the cutting job. Report contains a table that summarises the stock usage, number and size of the layouts, waste and cost. You can select the column and the order that the table will be sorted.
