As mentioned in an earlier blog post nesting is defined as the process of positioning parts as closely as possible to optimize material yield and cut time
Advanced Nesting Suite (New Features)
Advanced True-Shape – An improved nesting algorithm offering new competencies and extended flexibility. The previous algorithms also remain in the single user interface, creating an effortless process. True shape nesting allows users to rotate objects in increments as small as 1 degree. This powerful feature gives more control over the Gap, and Margins of each desired object
Block Nesting – This features’ advantages arise when cutting rectangular blocks. The tool recognizes common lines among the blocks to optimize material yield and cut time. Common lines are lines that touch multiple blocks resulting in less material waste as the cut lines are shared with another block.
True-Shape Nesting – can rotate objects increments as small as 1 degree. This powerful feature gives more control over the Gap, and Margins of each desired object.
Dynamic Nesting – These particular nesting features’ strengths arise as each object can be nested manually, utilizing space to your desire. The Dynamic element of this tool provides the most control over the nesting process.
Nesting Multiples (Copy Nesting) – copy nesting allows objects to be selected and nested, creating more control over objects to be nested first.
