The Glass Cutting optimizer based on the PLUS 2D  cutting optimization  technology consistently delivers high yield layouts and is ideal for cutting glass, whether manually or using a CNC cutting table. The software not only accepts multiple sheet sizes, but also selects the best sheet for the job, generating optimum cutting patterns that not only save material, but are much simpler to cut further reducing time and cutting costs. 

Whether you are in window, glazing, tabletops, mirrors, auto glass or fenestration business, the software will dramatically cut down the waste, and maximize your profits. Simply define your part lists, the sheet glass sizes available, and optimize with a click of a button, to generate the cutting plans. 

Maximize your glass panel yields and reduce setup and assembly time : PLUS 2D is one of the best optimizers. Compare the utilization for yourself. Click here for some sample data and cutting diagram.

Accurate estimation of  your sheet glass requirements : PLUS 2D automatically selects the best sheet sizes, and can tell you what sizes and quantities have to be ordered.

Import part lists as text and CSV files : You can import your data into the package in various formats, apart from the standard windows copy and paste.

Nesting in blocks and Standard Shape library : You can nest your shapes within a rectangle for easy breakout. A number of standard shapes available in the parametric shape library. For other shapes you can always import a DXF file.

Link to CNC glass cutting tables : We already export the layout drawings as DXF with information on different layers which you can import into your cutting table link software. We also write out the data in standard formats. To know whether your CNC controller is supported or not Click Here!! Write to us for more information.
