Working with Edging Material Thickness

When setting up an edging material you can specify the optimize thickness. The optimize thickness can impact the final optimized panel size depending on the settings for the input panel.

There are two main options. You can have MaxCut automatically reduce the final panel size by the edging settings. Alternatively you can have MaxCut keep the final panel size and "add" edging thickness onto that.

Exclude edging thickness in the final panel size

To demonstrate how to adjust the settings lets use the following input panel as an example. This panel has a 1000mm (L) x 500mm (W) size with 3mm Colour Example Edging along "Length 1".

To adjust the edging behaviour for that panel you need to click the advanced button on the bottom right hand side of the input panel window.

Then select the "Exclude Edging Thickness" option under "Panel Edging Thickness"

If you now run the optimization and look at the final panel size it will be 1000mm x 500mm.

If you now run the optimization and look at the final panel size it will be 1000mm x 497mm. MaxCut would have removed 3mm from the width of the input panel to allow for a 3mm edging along one length.
