- The button loads a window containing the main parameters of the module and in particular those of the reports.
Percent of waste at calculation of necessary number of sheets - The value defines the percentage by which to increase the calculated area of sheet material in determining the necessary number of sheets of it. Reflected in the report Material expenditure (field Approximately number of sheets/).
Technological waste of material edgeband- Sets the value, which must be added to the length of each edgeband element nomenclature. It calculates only for materials for which this is defined in the Nomenclature materials (the option Calculates techological waste must be enabled).It is used in the report Material expenditure.
Section Specification of details, Total expense on elements - The options in this section set how to be displayed the information in the desribed reports:
Option Sort by units - If
it is checked the reports' contents will be sorted by a units names in
the job irrespective of unit of measure of their elements.
Option Sort by unit of measure - If it is checked the reports' contents will be sorted by a unit of measure of elements in the job. In the beginning of the list will be described the elements with unit "sq.m." and then these with "l.m.". In the end of the list will be described the elements with a unit of measure "pieces".
Design Sintez Professional -Option "Expense of materials , attached to Operations ,connected to materials in nomenclature Materials-> Operations" (in short expense Operations- Materials)- Reflected in the report in a table view "Calculation on units". Provides information about the cost of materials necessary to perform the operations to manufacture a product. Based on the connection of a material to an operation. Besides, the operation must to have set a Material consumption rate. Accordingly, for its part, the operation must be attached to material , connected with elements from " Register of participating in the drawing elements “. It is calculated as follows: The quantity of material , related to elements from the inventory is multiplied by the expense rate of the secondary material (attached to the operation, which is connected to the original material). The result is multiplied by the price of secondary material per unit of material.
For example: the material
connected to an element in “Register of participating in the
elements “ is EDGEBAND and its quantity
is 20 meters. To the edgeband is attached operation EDGEBANDING . For
its part to EDGEBANDING operation is attached material glue with
expense rate 0.1 pc. per unit material and unit price 10 BGN./package.
Activating the button PRO we
receive: expense “Operations - Materials "= 20 BGN (20 l.m x 0.1
package glue - material consumption rate x 10 BGN (cost of 1
Supplying and storage expenses % - Contains the percentage of delivered - storage costs for article. It defines on the base of the calculated value of materials in it in the report Calculation on units.
Includes section Labour in report Calculation by units - the condition of this option defines how will be calculated the sum of labour for the job in the report Calculation on units. When the the option is disabled , all items in account of labour value are ignored for separate articles. The account is made for the whole job in the report Total calculation, taking the value defined in the module Open job, Information about job, page Summary (for Design Sintez Professional) or nothing is added (for Design Sintez Standard).
Add a section "Services" in the report "Calculation on units" - The option regulates the inclusion (if it's checkek) or not (if it's not checked) of the service Services in the report Calculation on units/ Total.
Design Sintez Professional - Option Charged work by Elements->Operations - It is included in the report Calculation on units. The formation of this cost is based on generating units in certain parts thereof (left end , bottom, top , etc.) with operations, which are used in their processing. Based on the cost of operation “for the whole operation " and number of related elements , when there is generate a price offer for the job ( Module Price offer formation, Elements’ list, button PRO) it is calculating the expense "Elements-> Operations" , such as the sum of the number of elements by price operation , with which they are connected. If there are several elements, related to different operations, quantity accumulate. For example: 1 element , connected with a price Operation 1 with price BGN 2 / operation and 3 elements , related to Operation 2 with price for operation 5 BGN. Pressing the button PRO in module Price offer formation, we get:Charged work by Elements->Operations
Thus the estimated cost is included in the final cost of the article.
Charged labour by Materials - Operations - It is included in the report Calculation on units. The material quantity connected with operation multiplies by the price for processing of unit of material. When the option is not checked this sum will be not calculated.
Additional expenses - This is the percentage of additional expences, which increases the amount of work. The price of labor is defined as a product of the number of hours and the price of one working hour. Participate in the report Calculation on units
Profits % - Here defines the profit's percentage for calculating of the end price of article. Participate in the report Calculation on units
VAT % - Here defines the value (%) of VAT set out in forming the final price of the drawing. Participate in the report Calculation total
Text fields Text field under "Delivery and inatallation" and Text field under "Total incl. VAT" - Here can be entered supplementary explanatory texts visible in the report Calculation total.
Colour of the details' numbers in the cutting maps - The colour of numbers by default is white. Select new from the dropping out list to change it.
Shows the list of elements under the cut material - This option defines the place of the names of the cut details - on details or in list under each sheet. If the option is not chosen, the names of elements are on the cut sheet. This can become a reason for names that overlaps and unattractiveness of the drawing. When the option is active each detail get number and under each sheet there is a list. This list contains: 1. detail number ; 2. Unit name; 3. Detail name and its sizes.
In these cases it is necessary to check Allows change of dimensions of sheet too, to be able to enter the sizes of the next sheets after cutting of the residual material. The option which allows change of the sizes, become inactive automatically after the end of operation. The button Next initializes (activates) the cutting process. Opens the service drawing "gen_wyzel_otgore_COPY" (for cutting) and the window Elements for cutting.
Here are listed
all details for cutting and their sizes. Use buttons Turns the dimensions of specified
by default details and Turns
the sizes of the marked details to rotate the detail
sizes. The first button turns all details specified
in the form Parameters by
default (module Cabinet --->
automatically. The second button turns only the specified in
the list details (selected rows).
Information about this which details are with turned sizes is shown in
the column Rotated sizes. The set
rotation of elements' sizes in the list for cutting will be cancelled
after each cabinet editing.
The elements in the list can be sorted by columns: "Element name", Dimensions "on X" and "on Y", "Element No" (press left button on a column title). The sorting proceed only once, in ascending order of values. The column Element name sorts in alphabetic order.
Export to Plan-IQ - The button Export creates an export file for cutting with software Plan-IQ. The file is saved in the folder "acad_pic / temp".The file name matches the name of the drawing+string "_PLAN_IQ"+_material name.The file extension is tc3.
button Print element's
list shows on the screen a list of
elements for cutting and their sizes and edgebanding. This list
can be printed out. The report looks like this.
Button Edgebands open the dialogue form Choice of edgeband. Here you can set those edgebands, which will be shown as "thick" on a cutting card (edges of doors for example) and those which will be "thin". By default is set "thin" edge. To designate it as "thick" select the row and if you want - change the colour. If you have any elements connected to a material, which is specified as thick or thick 2 in the Nomenclature materials, this flag will be checked automatically in the list and in a cutting map. On a cutting map the thin edgeband is designated by a thin line. The thick edge - with thicker line and Thick 2 - thickest line. This way these 3 kinds of edgeband are divided visually on the cutting map.
By default all three kinds of edgebands have white colour. This colour can be changed from the respective dropping out list in a window Choice of edgeband.
To save the made changes press the button Save.
Cut the element, Does not cut the element - These buttons add or exclude elements from the list for cutting. Select an element for exclusion and press the button Does not cut the element. If you want to add an already excluded element again to the list, select it and press the button Cut the element. You can make a group selection of elements. For not next selection of rows keep the key Ctrl pressed.
Element No - Here is shown the element position from its previous cutting. The purpose of this is better orientation of the operator for cutting optimization.
When you have made all changes, press the button Cutting to continue. For a cancellation of the operation press Stop operation. The service drawing closes and you returns in the original drawing.
The dark blue lines show a position of thick edgeband on elements, the blue lines - thin edgeband.
The file, in which makes the cutting , saves in directory (folder) "\acad_pic\temp". At repeated start of cutting of the same material from the same job, the new file overwrites the already existing. If you want to keep it, change its name after cutting. Above each one sheet shows an information about the name of the job, about the material, about deprivation from the sides, about the total used area from the respective sheet and about the residual not cut area (the rest of material). The elements are described as sizes, element name and unit, to which it belongs. All of them are saved as blocks (as units) with an identical base point and it is not recommended to move them manually from one sheet on another for example. The reason - if you have entered saw blade thickness, at moving an element it can not be marked as distance to the other elements. Depending on the number of the cut sheets, the drawing will be scaled automatically with the purpose to be seen all sheets on the screen. To see in details concrete sheet, use operation Scale area or only Scale. In a similar way you can prepare for printing each sheet separately. In the dialogue form for printing it is necessary to choose Window < , to define the scaled area of the screen (if you did not scale such, in the form for printing in section Plot area check Extents before a choice of area from the screen - button (Window <)).
The program generates three kinds of reports in Excel or OpenOffice files, depending on the specified in System parameters. The file name is identical with the job's name and the sheet name is identical with the name of the respective report. The details' sizes are in that unit of measure, which is specified in page Parameters by default in the module.
expenditure - This
report contains list with all elements that are connected with
materials in the drawing. If there are some jobs united in one cutting,
there will load the common quantity of the materials for all
the list. All
units in the job created by modules Cabinet and Doors with fixed price
and same name are kept as one common material with unit of measure pieces and quantity = 1.The
units from Units register,
connected with materials in the drawing, are included too. Those with
selected number of price column from Units
register will not participate.The list includes:
Professional: The report includes subreports Expenditure of applied materials to
operations which are connected with materials in nomenclature
"Materials-> Operations" and Material expenditure of edgebands for each
material subject of cutting.
This reports provides information about the value of the products in the drawing and their cost on units and summarizing for the whole drawing. Contains generated units with element nomenclature and unit of measure lm, sq.m. or pieces and non-standard units from Units register. The units from Archival Units register are not included.
Calculation on units- The report contains information about the value of the products of the drawing. For each article calculates individual price on the base of the materials' cost, the expenses of labor and delivery, and the set profit percentage.All units in the job created by modules Cabinet and Doors with fixed price and same name are kept as one item with common price.
The section "Services" can be included or excluded from the report. That defines in the window Parameters by default in page Reports' parameters by activating or exclusion of the option Add a section "Services" in the report "Calculation on units".
Design Sintez Professional - The value of labour costs can be set as a common for a whole job or separately for each article. For this purpose the option Includes section Labour in report Calculation by units must be switched off (Parameters by default, page Reports' settings), and in module Open job, Information about job, page Summary must be entererd a value of labour cost for the entire job.
Specification of details - Shows detailed list with all elements that construct the units, regardless if they will be subject of cutting.Except the element names and their sizes, the detailed list includes: materials description,with which are connected the elements; the unit of measure and the quantity of the element; which sides will be edgebanded and information if the elements are with unrectangular shape. The text for the non-rectangular details is specified in the dialogue Cutting parameters.
Total expense of materials on elements - Summary list of the details of the units in the job. It includes: detail name, its number in the job, its sizes and unit of measure, and the quantity of this element.
This method gives you an opportunity to avoid the direct dependence of the cutting as an operation, which is quite connected with the current drawing. You can cut out sheet material, entering manually the elements, their sizes, names and to which unit they belong (free text). The mode (way) of work and parameters are similar to the automatic definition of elements.
Sequence of operations:
Note: To display text and numbers to the cutting map, you need to execute operation (button from Manager of operations and commands).
Approximately necessary number of sheets of the chosen material - Calculates number of the necessary sheets depending on their sizes on base of the Total volume -sq.m. (sum of all elements) and entered Percent of losses at calculation of necessary sheets.
After the end of the cutting , when the option Doesn't cutt material on the screen is active, in the form are shown the fields Total number of cutting sheets and Sheet for printing . Here you can enter number of a sheet for visualization on the screen or for printing (use the two additional buttons below). For consecutive printing of all sheets press the button "printer". The counter will be overturned automatically for each next sheet.
The value into a field Percent of wastes at calculation of necessary sheets regulates in % what will be the expected loss of a material at cutting. It is used for calculation of the necessary number of sheets on base of the total sum in of elements, subjects of cutting + calculated percent (%) of the losses. The option is active only at manual cutting.
The option Doesn't cut material on the screen defines how will be made cutting: whether it will be seen on the screen or in a background mode. If you mark an option, the process of the cutting will be executed, but will not be shown on the screen.. It reduces time of cutting with about 80 %. Turn on the option at large cuttings. The purpose of this action is to avoid the blocking of your computer because of the insufficient memory and reduction of time for cutting.
Additional operations in the form for change of the sizes of a sheet and deprivation from the sheets.
Number of the next sheet - shows an information about the number of the next sheet for cutting.
The rest for cutting - shows the information about the total residual volume of the material for cutting.
When you close the drawing, the program asks whether you want to save the entered elements or not. If you answer Yes it will be saved and you can use it again. If you don't want to keep it, press No.
To load again the same list with elements, open the drawing with the pevious cutting and remove its content on the screen (not in the form). So at start of the operation the existing set of elements and chosen material from previous cutting will be kept.Main page DS User guide
