Question on Cutlist Area Calculation

Postby Rachel Meehan » Tue, Jan 16 2018, 11:13PM

Hi,

We are trying to work out how much a job is going to weigh, so we are trying to use the area calculation from the cutlist data.
We are using the metric settings, so as a test piece we put in a 2400mm X 1200mm piece of board, and the area calculated was 113 103mm2 or 0.1m2.
The board should actually be 2 880 000 mm2, or 2.8m2
We are just wondering if we are interpreting the numbers correctly as amount of material used?

Any help appreciated, thanks!

Rachel,

Looks to be a bug on our end. I'll pass it along to the software engineers. If you take the value you are receiving for total area calculation and multiply by 25.4 that should get you pretty close. It was working in that scenario of taking the Std Upper Frameless, removing all parts except the back and testing sizes with it.
