Creating a Woodworking Cutlist with ViaCAD 9

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

With ViaCAD 9  you can now create a cutlist.  Creating a good cutlist for a woodworking project can take some time, but will ultimately save you more time and money when it comes to purchasing  your material. In this demonstration, we explain how to make a cultist using the Bill of Material feature and CutList attribute.   The cutlist attribute will help identify parts of the same length, width, and thickness.  After you add  your cutlist attributes, ViaCAD will generate a Bill of Material listing all the common parts.  With cutlist  in hand,  you can now go to the   lumberyard confident that  you get the correct amount of material for your project.  Click the image below to view the demonstration.
