    Thought I had responded to this but I don't see it. I was referring to Cutlist Plus. Sorry if I missed the point of the thread.

    + 5 for Cutlist Plus. Export from sketchup, even better if utilizing cutlist bridge, and I can have a lumber / sheet goods estimate super fast.

    No grain orientation was set in either - so the tools were free to pick the best orientation to maximize yield

    that works for melamine or MDF but I nearly always need to determine the grain orientation for each part. One also has to make sure the kerf and edge trim settings are the same. I have no preference for tools but did a similar comparison in the past and found that when I set all parameters the same the results were the same. down to which parts are one each sheet even.
