What plugin is this for sketchup? I tried cutlist and I am having problems with it cutting 2 x 4's for a saw horse. Would like to try it in sketchup.

Hi Jim. actually I prefer to use sketchup, you can download the software for free, the difference with the paid version is the layout software and some other applications but you can work perfectly with the free version, I draw the sheet in the sketchup and just move piece by piece of your project to the sheet, the advantage of this is you can select the position of every part and and every cut or crosscut of the sheet and with the other software sometimes you need to make a lot of tablesaw and crusscut set up. I hope you understand me because I am mexican and my English is not perfect. greetings
My workflow is as follows:
Draw the project in Google SketchUp.
Export a cutlist from Sketchup via the plugin to Sketchup called "Cutlist"--> I only export the CSV file with the components and their dimensions. I find the Cutlist does not layout the boards that well.
Import the CSV into MaxCut to lay the components out on sheet goods for cutting. --> Print off the diagrams.
Use it - don't use it ;)
