    Is there a trick to have the cutlist calculate when you copy items? For example when building a pergola. 4 post beams. I would create 1 and then copy to create the other 3. When I go to cutlist it only shows an amount for 1 post, not 4.

    Are you a wood worker?

    THERE IS A CERTAIN SADNESS IN THIS BEAUTIFUL CREATION !! IF ONLY THE IMAGE COULD HAVE BEEN SUPERIMPOSED RATHER THAN CARVED !!.

    Hi, thank you for sharing. ‘m trying to generate a cut list for a project that is made by 10, 16, and 20 mm plywood. I’m having troubles with 20 mm plywood, because the software produces more cut list for the 20 mm plywood, instead of merging in a single cut list like the other thickness.How can i fix this problem?

    I am wondering how to generate cutting diagram for solid woods (I don’t see cutting diagram button as shown for plywoods).

    Hangs with large number of cabinets whivh was not happening with previous versions

  11. Mike Walker on January 13, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    What if I want to build multiple dressers (or other item). Do I need to duplicate the item in Sketchup or is there a setting in the extension to set for number of items/objects to build?

  12. Justin Waterson on January 13, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    This 2 part tutorial just streamlined everything I’ve been doing!

  13. Nico Smets on January 13, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    Bummer. cutlist doesn’t seem to work in sketchup 2021

  14. Spinner Bait on January 13, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    i see you on the GITHUB for opencutlist so wanted to ping you with an issue im having. it normally works but this time it refuses to generate cutlist for plywood panels stating that the saw kerf is tooo big
    have never had this issue. i did check material dimensions to ensure that i didnt use an inch where foot should be

  15. YoutubeChannel on January 13, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    Awesome man thank you!

  16. Ragnar-The-Viking on January 13, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    I’m confused a bit. You have all these different groups. Did you use a shortcut to get to all the groups?

  17. ikhee ikhbayar on January 13, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    thank you

  18. Triumf Dula on January 13, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    Part of a cabinet project not showing all in the opencutlist when generating them ?

  19. mat gill on January 13, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    Probably the most slow moving painful tutorial I have ever watched!

  20. הדס הורניק on January 13, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    great video, helped a lot. thanks

  21. Rito Luis on January 13, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    What if you are unable to download the open cut list?

  22. Ardi Utama. IDW GD on January 13, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    use cm or mm units

  23. Jim Black on January 13, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    I just tried ‘Cutlist’. It is an older program and is free. I like the way it works. Easy to use. The only shortcoming is that the layout drawings do not include dimensions. Perhaps these is a setting I missed.

  24. Michael Avery on January 13, 2022 at 9:23 pm

    Man I’ve been making those process so much harder than it needed to be. What was your back panel? You hid it but didn’t add it to the material list.

  25. Triumf Dula on January 13, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    HI, is there a cutmap plugin alternative, since it is not compatible with latest sketchup version ?

  26. L Jackson on January 13, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    Thanks for this. Getting the cutlist went just as described. If you don’t have Trimble acct, you will have to make one. Then follow the download and install instructions from the warehouse.

    It is helpful… https://youtu.be/PGelu_F2Ftg please support me . Thank you

  28. R.C Editz on January 13, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    Is there an option to make cutlist according to the grain direction. Because I have to change the axis manually everytime

  29. TubeHammel on January 13, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    This was very well explained. Thank you, Andrew!

  30. Fauzan Azim on January 13, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    Thank u very much

  31. Mountain Woodworks on January 13, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    If your plywood fits into a dado in the legs and the panel is actually 1" wider than the piece that shows how would you account for that?

  32. Eric Newport on January 13, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    When i use this extension in Sketchup 2021 Pro it tells me "Your model does not use any defined material (Solid Wood, Sheet Goods, Dimensional ou Hardware)."

    However, i used materials native to the Sketchup program in my drawing.
    Thoughts on why this extension does not recognize I have actually assigned those materials?

  33. Mark Teter on January 13, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    Andrew: I appreciate the time and effort you took to help me work through both Sketchup and Cutlist. One thing I noted was that you had not included a board covering the back of the dresser. I presumed it should be 1/4" and I made it OSB for the purposes of completing this tutorial. I did note, however, that Cutlist would not generate properly while that back board was in place, so I "moved" it away from my drawing and it worked just fine. Is there a workaround for not having to "explode" the drawing?

  34. Tuckleberry Finn on January 13, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    I haven’t tried yet, but will a piece with rebates or dados be recognized as the larger thickness (0.75")

  35. davut cihan on January 13, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    It was a very good explanation, it helped me a lot. Thank you Andrew ! Also OCL is very successful. Many thanks to the person who made it.

  36. FollowAndrew on January 13, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    Fellow woodworkers, what other programs do you use for generating cut-lists?

  37. darkdrumhead on January 13, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    yea, well, I expected sketchup can do it without extension.

  38. eTanium on January 13, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    "On the ‘macintosh’" That was adorable.

  39. TubeHammel on January 13, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    This is fantastic! I decided to donate to the project. This is well worth it and many hours of development have been invested into this extension.

  40. Kenny G on January 13, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    Another excellent video.

  41. John-Paul Marrazzo on January 13, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    Thank you very much for the help on these videos! I am well on my way to designing my first piece now :D!

  42. Amilia Stehman on January 13, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    I wish you would’ve mentioned which version of the program you were using when we started. 🙁 spent all day creating my project now I cant create a cut list on the free, personal version. Thanks for your help anyway, overall it was helpful but that would’ve been a huge time saver.

  43. AL AC on January 13, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    My MS Excel does not have this Extension or Drawing Cabinet capabilities. We need more info that just "" Drawing cabinets with MS Excel"". or just ""Generate Cut-list Woodworking 3D SketchUp"

  44. Big Dude's Woodwork on January 13, 2022 at 9:46 pm

    Hi Andrew, I’m really hoping you can help me. I built a model in SketchUp, I’m trying to generate a cut list, and the legs of my out feed table are going to be made from 2x lumber. However after I joint and mill the lumber the legs are going to be 1 1/4" x 4". In open cut list I keep getting to warning "cross section undefined." Id like to cut these pieces out of a 2×10, however it seems like the program will only let me define the lumber as the exact size of the finished cross section. I thought I would be able to use any piece of lumber that was larger than my finished piece? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  45. Wraith on January 13, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    This is exactly what I needed. Thanks very much.

  46. Dino Cinquegrani on January 13, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    how do you use this for dimensial lumber. i have a bunch of 2×4 in a model and set up my materials with the correct thinkneses and plenty of standard lengths, but on the cutting diagram, it says "one or more parts could not be bit, because it is too large to fit"

  47. Mike on January 13, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    Thanks for the video. I wish there were more tutorials in english for this program. Huge time saver

  48. modernpsalmist on January 13, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    Any idea why solid wood parts won’t generate a layout? It would help to know at least the board footage required for solid wood parts

  49. anishkumar TS on January 13, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    Thanks……………
