The software allows for on site creation and storage of sawing lists.
Sawing lists may also be created during work preparation. They can then be loaded into the machine’s computer from USB key or via ethernet connection. Creating sawing lists is very simple. The software’s graphic interface allows the selection of a specific beam model, upon which the relevant measurements are keyed in. The measurements may be entered in various ways, depending on which system is used during work preparation. The 1.2 Gb hard disk used allows for permanent storage of hundreds of sawing lists.

An onboard optimisation package is included which allows cutting lists entered or imported to be test optimised against timber lengths to generate an pre-optimised cutting list. This includes one import routine from external design package. An optional external software package, Optimaster is also available, for importing of cutting lists from multiple software packages, such as Excel, BTL DDS, Consultec, HSB, Sema, Vertex, Cadworks & Dietrichs. This package includes stock control, full optimisation and automatic download to any number of saws. Further information on this package is available.
