Optimumcut-1D as a linear material optimization software, can be utilized to optimize the cutting of linear materials commonly used in windows and doors manufacturing. Here’s how it can optimize windows and doors linear materials:

Efficient material usage:

Optimumcut-1D helps maximize material utilization by determining the most efficient cutting patterns for linear materials such as aluminum extrusions, PVC profiles, wooden planks, and glass panels. By optimizing the cutting layouts, it minimizes waste and maximizes the yield from the raw material stock.

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 windows and doors, such as the dimensions, types of profiles, quantities, and any constraints or limitations. Optimumcut-1D then generates 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, considering factors such as stock material lengths, profile lengths, and order quantities.

Accessory scheduling:

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


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


The software generates detailed reports that include the optimized cutting patterns, quantities, lengths, and any remaining waste. These reports are valuable for tracking material usage, assessing cost savings, and optimizing future production runs for windows and doors.

By utilizing Optimumcut-1D for optimizing windows and doors linear materials, manufacturers can streamline their production processes, reduce material waste, and improve overall efficiency in manufacturing. This can lead to cost savings, improved productivity, and enhanced competitiveness in the windows and doors industry.
