Cutting Optimization Pro allows to specify the band used for the edges of pieces to be optimized.
First of all the type of bands must be specified along with their characteristics. The thickness of bands will be automatically subtracted from the sizes of the pieces to be optimized. If this is not wanted, one may set the thickness to 0.
For defining the edge banding for a piece from DEMAND, one should enable the corresponding columns in the PARTS table. The user will be allowed the user to define the band for each edge.
At the end of optimization, the length of the band is given in the Extra Statistics window.
