This document explains how to use OpenCutList, a SketchUp Extension. It is intentionally kept very brief to make it easier to translate.
We assume that the reader is familiar with SketchUp.
OpenCutList extracts bounding boxes from SketchUp components (not groups) or selection of components in a scene in order to compute length, width and thickness of all visible parts of a model. By applying SketchUp material to the components and configuring its parameters, OpenCutList will find the best raw material matching the dimensions of the Part and efficiently compute a Parts List. For certain types of material, Cutting Diagrams can be computed. Reports with material and cost summaries can also be generated.
OpenCutList was written for use in woodworking projects, but may be suited for other trades and projects as well.
