OpenCutList 2.0.0 out!
Published on March 23, 2021 by Martin Mueller

OpenCutList version 2.0.0 has just been accepted and signed by Trimble. It is available now at the Extension Warehouse and on github. The signed extension can simply be updated from the Update button, but remember to restart SketchUp!

A few tips to get you started on the new features:
  • Presets have been added to save your preferences about settings/options.
  • Hardware is a new type of Material. It can be used to group all components under the same group name.
  • For parts of type Hardware, a packaging size may be added, so that 1 part in the Parts List represents  1 pack of x units. This is typically used for fasteners (domino, clamex, hinges, ...).
  • The Cost and Weight Report needs some information about the material (for wood types, configure the Attributes of the Material), for hardware the component itself must be configured (from the Parts List or the Report).
  • For Solid Wood, OpenCutList is using a Waste Factor to account for yield of rough lumber. Depending upon the quality and species of wood, a factor between 1.2 and 1.7 should make sure you are buying enough lumber.
  • Label layouts can be freely configured. It is best to save them using the presets. Multiple layouts, per label sheet or job type, can be saved.
  • A link at the bottom right of the OpenCutList window will open your mail client to report a bug, a translation error or simply a feature request.
While talking to users, we realized that there are many hidden gems/shortcuts inside of OpenCutList. We have set a new fundraising goal to finance the writing of a complete documentation and best practice tips for using OpenCutList.

As a last point, we would like to thank the translator team who has worked very hard to make OpenCutList available in 12 languages.

Stay safe, enjoy woodworking and life!

Hi Sebastian,

Good to have your feedback as we do not have a label printer at hand. What is your experience with Dymo labels regarding residues left on the parts? 

We would love to have feedback about which labels work well (even when left for a couple of days on the surface) and which ones do not work at all.

Gerardo, click on the Print button. If this printer can be used as a normal printer it will print.
Else, I don't know.

Hello, I am very happy about the last update. It looks great. I have a question about the cost report. Is it possible to set the price for 1 meter of cut? It would be a great solution. The calculation would be taken from the cut chart and settled by the price set in the settings. It would be possible to add an icon, e.g. a shield, which is visible in the diagram when hovering over a given element.

Maybe there is such an option, but I didn't get to it.
