TonCut is intended for cutting optimization of flat (2D) and long (1D) materials, such as: glass, wood, stone, metal, aluminum, plexiglass, cardboard, tubes, bars, etc.

How can I increase optimization quality?

Speed and quality are mutually exclusive, so if you want the program to optimize better at the expense of speed, follow the guidelines below.

All the guidelines apply to the Optimization profiles tab in the Search options window.

A Restore defaults button is in the bottom-left corner of the window. It opens the configuration wizard, which in the second step allows you decide to prioritize either speed or quality of optimization. In most cases, answering the prompts will suffice. If not, here are more tips:

  • Increase the number of optimization profiles - you can enable or add optimization profiles, e.g. slow profiles, if they are on the list.
  • Enable or increase global optimization complexity - this can significantly improve the quality of the results. However, the optimization speed may be reduced drastically.
  • Enable or enhance adaptive sheet order change - you can reduce the threshold for this method to 5%. You can increase the number of tries and change cycles.
  • Disable time and volume limits - when disabling time limits take the capacity of your hardware into account, as optimization can take very long on legacy computers.
  • Increase search accuracy – you can increase the number of tries in the first and later cycles.
  • Upgrade your license to Professional - if your PC has multiple processors or a multicore processor you should consider upgrading to the Professional version, which supports multi-threaded optimization, to fully use its computation capacity.
  • Enable AI - the AI usually finds better results than traditional optimization algorithms, so enabling it is worthwhile for improving the quality of the results.
