The Components Projects feature in CutList Plus Gold and Platinum Editions saves you a lot
of time when building larger projects. It allows you to specify multiple copies of a project
and combine several projets into one.
Multiple Copies of a Project
This feature gives you a quick way to specify that you need to build
more than one copy of a project. For example, you may need to build two identical
tables, or four chairs. Instead of manually changing the quantity of
each part, you can just specify that there will be several copies of
the entire project.
Combine Multiple Projects Into One
This is a very powerful capability. It allows you to create a "master"
project that includes many smaller ones. For example, you could have
a "library" of standard size cabinets. Then, to build an entire
kitchen, you would combine various standard size cabinets, in various
quantities, into one large project. This allows you to optimize the
entire project as one unit (which is often more efficient), and get
a price estimate for the entire project.
