Project example:

Integration of WoodWorks into automated processes/workflows:

WoodWorks offers a number of features that enables integration into partially or fully automated processes or workflows. So can the printout be triggered automatically after a certain time or after reaching a certain value of cutoff (both adjustable). The optimization results can also be saved as an XML file, which can be further processed and passed on to automatic cutting tools.

If you use the context-menu (right mousebutton in the column “Cut-Off”), you can also view the layouts or print the layouts/labels/overview.
