1DCutX - Length Cutting Optimization within Excel.

Length Cutting Optimization for Excel

How much material do you actually need for your projects? Less than you usually use…

1DCutX - Length Cutting Optimization within Excel.

1DCutX, an Excel add-in for design engineers and project managers that optimizes length cutting operations for manufacturers that cut a lot of linear materials. 1DCutX reads data directly from Excel spreadsheets, and instantly generates both the graphical layouts and a detailed cutting report within Excel workbook. 1DCutX can reduce the usage of linear material by 20 to 40 percent, compared to manual cutting.

In addition to minimizing raw material waste, 1DCutX saves time, minimizes production costs, improves factory productivity and reduces the environmental impact of manufacturing products that are made from standard length bars, pipes, beams, and rolls. It allows you to order the proper amount of raw material, and provide customers with accurate quotations in just a few seconds.

Unlike calculation software that requires you to perform calculations in more than one program, 1DCutX does all of its work inside a single Excel workbook. This eliminates errors that result from saving and loading data between multiple software programs.

1DCutX's Features:

  • Reduces the usage of linear material by 20-40% in comparison to manual cutting.
  • High performance. The most of length cutting optimizations are done in less than a second.
  • Generates cost estimating reports for the sale and financial departments.
  • Generates graphical layout (plan) of the length cutting.
  • Saw kerf (thickness) support. Cutting produces the gap between parts that shrinks the result part sizes by a saw thickness.
  • Controls cut-offs (waste parts) size. Some cutting machines are unable to make a cut on tiny pieces, because of hardware restrictions, like cutting several millimetres from the wood beam or glass.
  • Supports Diameter for stock and parts. Parts will be cut only from stocks with the same diameter.
  • Supports Material/Type for stock and parts. Parts will be cut only from stocks with the same material/type.
  • Incomplete optimization. In some cases the supply of the material is limited and all parts cannot be cut from them.
  • Supports trim (grip) areas.
  • Supports Fractional and feet/inch numbers (like 2' 7 1/3").
  • Supports Layouts Minimization to reduce loading operations.
  • VBA Automation provides high level of customization to clients of 1DCutX.

"I don't know what we would do without it. Over the past few years we have been wasting so much material, time and money! The program is so easy to use, and the cut length diagrams are very easy to understand."

Jennifer Haines,
Diversified Machine Inc.

"In our case it isn't so much on the material saving but the time saving of planning production, minimising the lengths of product produced and not overstocking in certain lengths and improved production runs"

Grant Muller,
Hyne Timber

"It has really saved me a lot of time. I used to manually optimize the cut sheets. Takes a lot of time and is never that accurate. 1DCutX took my time from hours to seconds to complete the job."

Cliff Holder,
Holder Industrial Design, Inc.
