When a part ignores the grain, it informs Offcuts when generating a cut list to try and rotate the part to minimize waste from the plywood sheet.

Tap on the Groups button

You can get the warning icon and red text when Offcuts can't find any material in the inventory large enough to cut from.

Check the inventory tab, make sure the material still exists, and add a large enough size to cut the parts from.

Inventory

When you install Offcuts, a small number of raw materials is included in the inventory. Depending on your project, the material or sizes of these stock items may not exist.

It's easy to add new items to the inventory. Just follow the following steps.

Remember, all items in the inventory are shared amongst all projects.

Tap on the Add button.

Tap on Add

If the material you want isn't listed, tap on 'Add new material' and type in the material name

Tap on Add new Material

Fill in size and quantity. Price and Vendor are optional though pricing information will you understand the total cost of the project.

Fill in material information

The new stock item is now in inventory and can usable by all projects.

Most of us don't have an unlimited amount of wood to cut from. You may have only one 4x8 sheet of plywood but multiple 4x4 sheets. In Offcuts, you can tell it how much material you have, and Offcuts will work thorough your inventory making the best use of the inventory levels you have.

In the following example for 1/4 inch Baltic Birch plywood, we don't have any 4'x8' sheets in inventory and only one 4'x4' and ten 4'x2' sheets. When Offcuts calculates the cut list, it will ignore the 4'x8' sheet and only use one 4'x4' before moving on to the 4'x2' sheets. If Offcuts runs out of materials to cut from, a warning message is displayed on the cut list screen.

It's important to note, Offcuts DOES NOT maintain inventory levels for you. This is a manual process left up to you to manage.

Inventory Levels

To adjust inventory levels, swipe right on the selected stock item, adjust Quantity and press save

Changing inventory levels

Swipe right on the stock item you want to edit and tap on Edit

Swipe left on the stock item

All projects share offcuts inventory. When you modify the inventory, it affects all projects. If Offcuts determines that the stock item you're adjusting is in use, it will not allow all attributes to be changed. In this example, the 'Material Type' and 'Thickness' can't be changed.
