Curtainwall Facades


Optimumcut-1D being a software designed for linear material optimization, can be utilized to optimize curtainwall facade linear materials. Curtainwall systems often involve various linear components such as aluminum extrusions, glass panels, gaskets, and sealants, which need to be efficiently cut and utilized to construct the facade.

Here’s how Optimumcut-1D can optimize curtainwall facade linear materials:

Efficient material usage:

Optimumcut-1D determines the most efficient cutting patterns for linear materials, ensuring that materials are utilized optimally. This can help reduce waste and minimize the need for additional material purchases, ultimately saving costs in curtainwall construction.

Calculate optimum stock lengths:

The Calculate Optimum Length feature within Optimumcut-1D enables a user to calculate the optimum length of material to purchase as a special custom extrusion length for a production order. This length is calculated between the minimum extrusion length available, the incremental length the extrusion can be purchased (e.g. 25mm or 1″ increments) and the maximum extrusion length available. Optimumcut-1D will run through methodically and quickly every increment length and advise the optimal extrusion length and quantity required to fulfil your linear cutting project, maximising yield and minimising waste.

Customizable cutting plans:

Users can input specific requirements for the curtainwall materials, such as lengths, quantities, and any constraints or limitations. Optimumcut-1D can then generate cutting plans tailored to these requirements, optimizing material usage while adhering to the specified constraints.

Optimization algorithms:

The software employs advanced optimization algorithms to find the most efficient cutting patterns based on the given inputs. These algorithms aim to minimize waste and maximize material utilization, helping to reduce the overall environmental impact of curtainwall construction.

Accessory scheduling:

Optimumcut-1D can also schedule all accessories associated with the project including fixings, brackets, panels, glass, gaskets, silicone pointing etc.


Optimumcut-1D provides graphical representations of the cutting patterns, allowing users to visualize and understand the optimized cutting plans. This can help users assess the efficiency of the cutting plans and make any necessary adjustments before actual fabrication.


The software generates detailed reports that include the optimized cutting patterns, quantities, lengths, and any remaining waste. This information can be valuable for tracking material usage, assessing cost savings, and optimizing future curtainwall projects.

By utilizing Optimumcut-1D for curtainwall facade linear materials, construction companies and fabricators can optimize their cutting processes, minimize waste, and improve efficiency in the fabrication of curtainwall systems. This can lead to cost savings, reduced environmental impact, and improved overall performance in curtainwall construction projects.
