What is Optimumcut-1D v4 Professional ?

The #1 Industry trusted 1D-Cutting Optimization & Component Creation Software Tool

Optimumcut-1D Professional 1D Cutting Software typically offers a more extensive set of features and capabilities compared to the Optimumcut-1D Standard version.

The Professional version includes advanced component creation features, advanced optimization algorithms, additional customization options, and enhanced reporting and visualization tools.

These added features are geared towards users with more complex manufacturing optimization needs or larger-scale projects.

Component Creation:

To create a manufactured component using Optimumcut-1D Professional, a comprehensive approach integrating various elements is essential. Beginning with Formula Parameters, engineers or designers develop precise calculations to determine dimensions, tolerances, and specifications tailored to the component’s function and requirements. Accessories such as fasteners, connectors, and brackets are selected to enhance the component’s functionality and assembly process, ensuring compatibility and efficiency. Sheet goods, including metals, plastics, glass or composites, are carefully sourced and cut to size using advanced machinery or tools, adhering to the predetermined formulas and specifications. Linear cut materials, such as bars, tubes, or profiles, are optimized using Optimumcut-1D, minimizing waste and maximizing material utilization. Additionally, Miscellaneous items such as seals, gaskets, or silicone pointing may be incorporated to enhance durability, performance, and aesthetics. Through meticulous planning, precision engineering, and effective utilization of resources, a manufactured component is realized with optimal functionality, quality, and cost-effectiveness.

Bill of Materials (BOM) Reports:

A comprehensive list of all materials and parts required to manufacture the component is included in the BOM Reports. This includes linear materials, accessories such as fasteners, sheet goods, and any other miscellaneous necessary items.

Software Installation:

We provide customers with the necessary installation file and setup package for Optimumcut-1D Professional  to be deployed to your computer system. You can download the software from our website’s registered members portal.

User Interface and Setup:

Upon installation, Optimumcut-1D Professional presents a user-friendly interface that allows you to set up your cutting projects. You can create components and input details such as formula parameters, material type, linear material lengths, quantities sheet goods, accessories, miscellaneous items, cutting constraints, and optimization preferences.

Material and order entry:

Users can input details of the stock material and order requirements, such as lengths, quantities, and additional constraints.

Optimization Algorithms:

Optimumcut-1D Professional utilizes our own developed advanced commercial optimization algorithms to generate optimized cutting plans. Our algorithms analyze the input data and constraints to determine the most efficient cutting layouts, minimizing waste and maximizing material utilization.

Waste minimization:

Optimumcut-1D Professional minimize’s waste by intelligently arranging the cuts to utilize the available stock material effectively.


The software provides graphical representations of the cutting patterns, allowing users to visualize and understand the optimized cutting plans.


Optimumcut-1D generates detailed reports that include the optimized cutting patterns, quantities, lengths, and any remaining waste or reusable offcuts.

Cutting Reports and Labels:

Once the optimization process is complete, Optimumcut-1D Professional provides you with detailed cutting reports and labels. These reports typically include cutting layouts including cross reference labelling of each cut piece, material usage statistics, cutting sequence, and labels for easy identification of cut pieces.

Integration with CNC Machinery:

Optimumcut-1D Standard seamlessly integrates with CNC machinery for automated cutting operations. We provide the necessary CNC Saw Link output files or instructions that can be used by CNC machines to execute the cutting plans. This integration streamlines the cutting process, reduces manual errors, and improves overall efficiency.

Customization and Settings:

With Optimumcut-1D Professional, you have the flexibility to customize various settings to match your specific requirements. You can adjust parameters related to optimization preferences, cutting constraints, labeling options, and reporting formats.

Technical Support:

We offer comprehensive technical support to assist you with any questions, issues, or troubleshooting related to Optimumcut-1D Professional. You can reach out to us through email, or our online ticketing system.
