I want to build some porch planters out of sheets of plywood, but I'm trying to minimize the number of sheets of plywood I buy.

Is there software that will let me enter all my planter designs and then have it spit out the sheets of plywood with their cuts? Does software exist that converts a project design/CAD('ish) drawing to bill of materials?


I have used Cut List in the past when building speaker enclosures.


There is plugin for sketchup that generates a cutlist for a project.
