Timber Cutting Patterns

The Pi1

Log to Timber Cutting Optimizer

It is a sawmill calculator that gives you estimates of log yield. What is in it for you: maximum value from each foot of wood and fewer costs.

Sawmills employ every means to recover as much yield as possible from each log. We offer an algorithm, which generates a maximum log yield through optimising the sawing pattern.

The Pi1 calculations are performed in two stages.

Stage 1 Cutting a log to given different thickness timber. Pi1 stage 1
Stage 2 Getting final timber sizes from ones pre-calculated in Stage 1.
