Show your model as a list of dimensioned parts. Produce a layout of parts on stock materials.

CutList takes the current Sketchup selection and produces a list of the parts, their sizes and quantity of each. The plugin also can produce a layout of the parts on your selected material size and can be useful for estimating materials for constructing your model.

The default settings are designed so you can install and get useful output with just 3 clicks!

The material list can be produced as a text file or a browser window display, which can also be printed. A material list can also be produced as a CutListPlus(CLP)* import file  which has more sophisticated material layout and costing functions than built in to the plugin. 

The layout can be produced in a browser window display(standard setting) or an svg file both of which can also be printed. Svg files can now be opened by most browsers.

Runs on both Mac and Windows. (Note: layout for Mac can only be produced as an svg file due to Safari browswer security restrictions).

Works for both metric and imperial measures.

Though initially geared towards woodworking, it has also been used for metalworking, plastic, etc.

CutList takes the current Sketchup selection and produces a list of the parts, their sizes, and quantity of each. its a great information shared by you people.

I am a blogger and currently associated with as a professional essay writer.

I just spent 2 days sanding and preparing boards for a project only to realize during the assembly stage that the cut list measurements are wrong... off by as much as 19 inches on some boards!

During troubleshooting, I found that if I selected a specific board and ran cutlist, it would give me the proper measurement. Same thing with a component. But as soon as I selected a component of components (e.g. bed posts, which uses a couple of components each), it gives me erroneous measurements.

Hello. Could someone tell me how to not round the measurements? Instead of 0.51cm to be exactly 0.493cm? Thank you

Will this program soon be available for 2018. I have been using it for years in previous SketchUp versions.

The author has passed away (quite a number of years ago). If it doesn't work, unless someone steps up, it shant.

plug in .. usefull thx a lot

saberia dizer se tem como fazer para nao arredondar a medida? em vez de 51,0cm deixar como projetou em 49,3? algo assim? obrigado

This has been very useful to us in our client drawings. Bravo!

could be good, but its all in inches!! who works in inches in 2017?
Is there a toggle for mm? i cant see one

Hola Simon:
Si abro una plantilla en pulgadas me ofrece las medidas en pulgadas, pero si abro una plantilla en centímetros mide en centímetros.

Earl M's picture

Carpenter I do!

? Shows mm for me. I guess it shows cutlist for the template measurements you have choosen.

A LOT of people. Inches are standard in construction...try designing a cabinet in metric.

Actually, since all measurements in inches are based on the metric it is very easy to design anything in metric just as you would in inches. The only difference is that metric is so much easier to calculate and extract your measurements from a plan since it's based on 10.

how can i extension gear in my sketcup 2016

Those looking for support should (probably) note that the author of CutList died suddenly in March of 2014.

Just what I was looking for, and it works with SketchUp 2017 without any problems.

Thank you Steve R for this plugin! God bless you!

Overall pretty good with 2016 for me. There is an issue I'm having and unsure why. Some of the pieces come out to the right dimensions on the cut list, but others don't. I've checked and rechecked my dimensions, looked for hidden stuff, and can't figure out why it's doing it. The model I'm currently having the problem with is a very simple one, specifically the sides of it are just four boards side by side, 2 that are 6 9/32" wide and two that are 6" even. Some are listed as being their correct sizes, some are off by fractions of a inch (like 6 7/32" 6 9/64").

Not a huge problem really, at least for simple stuff. But if there's a fix or some reason for it, all the better.

This is a free software so I understand that this might not be the priority of the developer, but is it necessary to give access to the file system to the plugin? Can you sandbox it or maybe sketch up needs to implement standards for sandboxing for the plugins? Its not that i don't trust this developer, it that sandboxing just helps keep things safer... Just in case.

This plugin stopped working. Period. Click on "Run" and nothing happens. No error messages, no nothing.

I first installed CutList yesterday, Aug 15, 2016.

It worked fine until after installing Windows updates last night and restarting computer.
Opened same file in SketchUp after restart and now CutList will not work.

SketchUp 2016 Make. Windows 10.

When I browse to Windows>Preferences \extensions there is no option to "Install Extensions"

I am using Sketchup 8. from the 3d Warehouse I can select Sketchup 8. So i cant install this extension any advice?

Does this work on iMac with Sketchup 2016 for Mac?

Robert D's picture

I won't uptade to SketchUp 2016 until cutlist will

Using it now with 2016

I was looking for a cutlisting extension and this was very difficult to use and quite limited - I would hugely recommend Builder instead ( - very intuitive and customisable, and produces great output ready for printing!

...except it doesn't work for Mac.

I agree with the previous comment.
Cut list lacks the possibility of choosing your own stock panels.
With that posibility cutlist would be a very usefull awesome plugin

Board length is under the layout tab, at the bottom.

CutList for Skethup 2016 version???? please

Marcel S's picture

It works, just not from the Sketchup Extension Warehouse directly. If you search for the plugin using a web browser and download the .rbz file, then you can install the plug in using the Preferences menu, select Extensions and click on the Install Extension... button.
This was the way I made that work for my latest 2016 installation.

Install extension....

But where do you find the actual menu item in 2016?

Why am I getting these kinds of dimensions in Cutlist using Sketchup 2016? Never use to get this in 2015.

I didn't realize that CutList did not work with Sketchup 2016. Are there plans to modify the code to work with this latest version?

Tom H's picture

Very helpful plug-in. My main request is that you enable us to set the preferred board length. Right now it assumes 8 feet for everything. I typically buy my non-sheet lumber in 12' lengths. This makes a big difference in the waste I incur.

Is there anyway can modify the code directly to change the default length for non-sheet goods?

I have the same issue

Bento A's picture

Hello, Great plugin.

I made some modifications to the plugin.
I wanted to know how I can do to contribute to the improvement of the same?

Galin G's picture

Hi Bento,
try to write authors:
else, can you send me your modification. I want to be a beta tester :) I love this plugin. There is more precision than solid quantity (from sketchucation)

It will be great, the plugin to compute the beam (timber or steel) material without trying to cut into sheets.
However, the sheet size to can be modified (Useful for OSB material)
Last, the scarf to can be modified too. In Europe all is in mm, cm, m....
.... NASA measures are in metric system, why it must have inches, feet, miles .... :))))

Apr T.'s picture

Love the concept

Found that it has a problem though with the saw kerf when there are more than one cuts in a board. It takes into account one saw kerf only, so the cut list is useless.

I REALLY wish this could be fixed.

Chris P.'s picture

Great idea but falls short for my purposes. It only works if you plan to use only 1 length of material. There is no way for this plugin to use various lengths of lumber (8', 10', 12') when determining what is needed. You must select 1 length only, and it will try to fit all materials into that length.

Let's say you need 5 -8' lengths and 10 -12' lengths. Cutlist will only work if it can use 15 -12' lengths. What a waste! You can select 8', but then it will ignore the 12' foot lengths. So there is no way for you to get the right information if you require a mix of lengths for your project. Disappointing. (Unless I'm missing something here, please let me know)

I use this a lot to export to Cutlist Plus. Another nice feature to add would be to map Sketchup Layers to Cutlist Plus Sub-Assembly.

Cutlist 4.1.12 dialog opens with logo and four buttons: [Run] [Close] [Save Settings] [help] and NOTHING else. Click [Run] and I get a box saying "No Parts or no boards. Layout is not possible."

Any suggestions welcome.
