"undefined thickness" for parts not parallel to axes

Hello,
when extracting a cutlist there is a problem when parts are not aligned with the axes (blue, red and green) It shows "thickness undefined". Here  a staircase. How to tackle this problem?

Hi Bart,

You need to make each part a component and align the local axes of the component to match length, width and thickness of the part.

Check this https://docs.opencutlist.org/getting-started/components

Hi Martin,
I tried to enter the component, then right click, then "align axis", seems to work. Then go out of the component, go back, and the axes are again aligned with the whole model, and not to the faces of the pieces that are not aligned with the main axes. . So, how do I align the local axes properly?

You should get a message when you change the local axis and exit the edit mode of the component: "Would you like to update the Component Axes to match your modified Sketch Axes? ...".
If you click "No", it will not update the local axes.
