  • TonCut 8 - 8.1.20.10189

    09/04/2020 09:29:33 AM

    We are pleased to inform you about the new TonCut 8 version. The new version includes the following changes:

  • TonCut 8 - 8.1.15.10152

    08/30/2020 03:26:11 PM

    We are pleased to inform you about the new TonCut 8 version. The new version includes the following changes:

    • Added stock identifiers.
    • Added automated identifier generation for stocks originating from recyclable waste.
    • Added the option to choose whether the program is to manage warehouse stocks or not.
    • Added the option to save leftovers and waste to SSI files if the program is not managing warehouse stocks.
    • Added prioritization of stocks.
    • Added the option to select which material groups are to be included in optimization.
    • Added the option to select which stock sizes (standard and/or recyclable waste) are to be included in optimization.
    • Added the option to include a greater quantity of stocks in optimization than available in the warehouse.
    • Significantly improved AI results.
    • Added the option to filter, hide and delete results.
    • Lists of orders and stocks are now sorted in the order of entry by default.
    • Corrected an error sometimes causing the program to freeze during optimization.
    • Corrected an error sometimes generating double cuts.
    • Corrected an error sometimes causing the program to freeze while exporting stocks, after reloading them from the "Results” tab.

    In the last couple of months we have gathered a lot of feedback from the users. Accordingly, we decided to change our development plans. In version 8.1 we plan to also add:

    1. Full handling of projects/orders, i.e. grouping of order elements.
    2. Option to filter elements of orders and stocks by material groups.
    3. Option to confirm recyclable waste before it becomes a full-fledged stock.

    Then we will start working on version 8.2, which will include a new algorithm for nesting rectangles and the option to group elements for compatible post-cutting structure.

    Version 8.3 will include the option to optimize any shapes and support for diagonal cuts in 1D optimization.

    Only after adding all these functionalities will we move on to network operation and other licensing methods.

    05/19/2020 05:38:00 AM

    We are pleased to inform you about the new TonCut 8 version. The new version includes the following changes:

    • Acceptance of the results — if the quantity of the material falls to zero, the material will be removed from the resources, as long as its size is not standard.
    • Cancellation of the results — added removal of recyclable waste originating from the acceptance of canceled results.
    • Added solution name in the results printing footer.
  • TonCut 8 - 8.0.128.9343

  • TonCut 8 - 8.0.124.9302

    04/21/2020 10:56:49 AM

    We are pleased to inform you about the new TonCut 8 version. The new version includes the following changes:

    • Corrected an error making recyclable waste not go to the storage.

    Known problems (we are working on solutions):

    • Problem with identifying stocks (missing ID).
    • Problem with printing cuttings when there are too many elements.
  • TonCut 8 - 8.0.115.9160

    04/09/2020 10:08:19 AM

    We are pleased to inform you about the new TonCut 8 version. The new version includes the following changes:

    • Added warehouse stocks support. Orders and warehouse stocks are both stored in the local database. This makes the program even easier to use.
    • Added optimization history. Thanks to this, there’s no need to use SSI files anymore!
    • Added an optimization algorithm using AI. Thanks to this, the program can find even better results. We plan to continuously improve our algorithms using AI and machine learning.
    • Added a functionality for importing XLSX, XLS and ODS files directly in the program.
    • Added an option to import material groups and veneers.
    • Added one-click export of all cuttings.
    • Added an option to set piece margins. In this case, the margin is the opposite of the surplus.
    • Added support for bar codes - they can now be assigned to pieces and printed on the labels. We will also be adding support for QR codes soon.
    • Fixed many minor bugs related to the way program works and its appearance.

    Importantly, we updated the naming convention:

    • Material is now called material group.
    • Sheet is now called material.
    • Sheet margin is now called formatting.
    • Ornament is now called structure.

    Plans for the future:

    • Version 8.1 (July 2020) - new algorithm for rectangle nesting and an option to use the same data by all TonCut instances in the company.
    • Version 8.2 (October 2020) - any-shape optimization.

    For the time being, we continue to sell TonCut 7. We also priced it down. This is because TonCut 7 theoretically allows sharing data between many TonCut instances. TonCut 8.0 in its current form, despite its many advantages, unfortunately lacks this functionality. This problem will be solved in version 8.1.
