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 to speed up the optimization?

First, we must emphasize that the two goals - speed and quality are mutually exclusive. If you want TonCut to optimize faster at the cost of quality, use the guidelines below.

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

  • Decrease the number of optimization profiles - you can disable or delete some of them, e.g.:
    • If all of your sheets have the same size, sheet order is irrelevant - you can leave only "From small" or "From big" profiles.
    • If "Equal from big" and "Equal from small" profiles are on the list, you can disable "From big" and "From small" profiles - the "Equal and more equal" method usually produces better results.
    • Turn off the slow profiles if they are on the list.
  • Disable or simplify global optimization - this can significantly increase the optimization speed. However, the results can be significantly worse - you should especially expect a lot of waste on the last sheets.
  • Disable or simplify adaptive sheet order change - you can increase the threshold for this method to 30% and beyond. The number of tries and change cycles can be decreased. If so, the program will optimize like TonCut 5.
  • Set time and volume limits - while setting time limits, consider the capacity of your hardware.
  • Decrease search accuracy - the number of tries can be reduced to 1 in later runs. The number of tries on the first run can also be decreased.
  • 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.
