Crate Pro 6 offers options to give you the ability to export a Pieces report. If your ply optimization software accommodates import of 'flat' files, you may be able to import a report for your saws or other 3rd party reporting software.


We do not support any particular saw or software due to there being a large number of differences in saw platforms and regional procedures for wood cutting. Customers with maintenance plans can export from Design > Details > Pieces a file which can be field matched to your specific saw software. Effective with 'Crate Pro 6 r2008nn' (on FIleMaker 18), customers with maintenance can export a Pieces report with the like size materials combined for all designs on that Project from Projects > Print/Email > Pieces



Customers that do not have optimization software included with their saws have made the following suggestions.  If you would like to add another software,  please send to me at Support@CratePro.com. I have not reviewed any of these suggestions so will not be able to provide any information other than what was provided by customers:

Notes: In your Preference > Settings tab there are fields that will effect your Pieces reports. Ensure these are set for your company.
