Options define how the Parts List will be displayed.
OpenCutList can be configured in many ways to suit you needs.
Options in Parts Tab
If this option is selected, length, width and thickness of a part will be selected according to their relative order.
- 1.Length will be the largest dimension of the part.
- 2.Width will be the second largest dimension of the part.
- 3.Thickness will be the smallest dimension of the part.
If you select this option, dimensions on some parts may not be interpreted correctly!
If this option is not selected, the dimensions will be read from the local axis of the component. Length will be the dimension on the red axis, width on the green axis and thickness on the blue axis.
The order of length, width and thickness can be specified in the Properties of Part and the order can be locked for a particular part.
If this option is selected, parts that have been mirrored will be detected as two different parts. Mirrored Part Detection can also be configured on a per part basis in the Properties of Part.
If this option is selected, OpenCutList will try to infer the material of a component from the material of a face. If two or more faces have different material, only one will be considered, the face with the largest area. When material has been extracted from one of its child elements, the Parts List will display a small icon next to the part.
If material has been applied to an enclosing group, but not to the enclosed parts, OpenCutList will use the material of the the group for the parts. A small icon next to the part in the Parts List will tell you that the material was inherited.
Instead of numbers,
1, 2, 3, ..., to enumerate parts, use letters,
A, B, ..., AA, ....
If you select this option, enumeration will start fresh with each group.
Multiple parts may end up having the same number/letter if this is selected.
If this option is selected, parts with identical size and tag (possibly empty) will be grouped in the Parts List even if they are not instances of the same component.
If this option is selected, the instance name of a part will not be shown in the Parts List.
If this option is selected, the SketchUp description of a component will not be shown in the Parts List.
If this option is selected, tags will not be shown in the Parts List.
If this option is selected, rough dimensions (defined as the dimension of the component plus any oversizes configured on the material or on the part) will not be shown in the Parts List.
When edge banding is applied to a part, four additional columns describe the edge banding. If this option is selected, the columns will not be displayed in the Parts List.
If this option is selected, the OpenCutList window will be minimized if you click on the magnifier icon of a part. If you are working with two displays, you probably don't want this option to be checked.
Parts Sorting Tab
The parts are always grouped by type of material and thickness, but you may select the sort order to be applied within a group of parts.
Part Sorting defines the order of rows within a group of parts. You may have the rows sorted in ascending or descending order.
The dimension ordering affects the column order of the dimensions when displayed in the Parts List. For example, when cutting sheet good on a panel saw, it is sometimes easier to have the width as first column instead of length, because usually the first cut is horizontal.
Dimension Ordering Tab
Dimension Ordering defines the order of columns within the part list.
OpenCutList tags are like keyword stickers that can be attached to parts in order to support selection and filtering of the Part List. You can configure a list of custom tags to identify group of parts or parts requiring a special processing.
Tags are optional.
Elements defined here will be suggested when adding a tag to a specific part in the Properties of Part.
