NESTINGWorks software leverages the industry-leading NESTLib® true-shape 3D technology – known to nesting application developers worldwide as one of the fastest and most fully featured automatic true-shape nesting libraries available in the industry. With NESTINGWorks, product designers can efficiently optimize sheetstock layouts – including specifications for grain direction – so they can produce the maximum number of parts from a single piece of raw material in a matter of minutes, saving time, while simultaneously minimizing material usage.
BENEFITS & FEATURES
TRUE SHAPE NESTING
to orient parts true to shape, to optimize how parts can fit on a shape. Many simple nesting tools just draw a box around a part and nest the box, wasting valuable material.
enable the ability to maximize material usage by fitting smaller parts in open areas and cutouts on larger parts of the same thickness.
AUTOMATIC LAYOUT OF PARTS WITH VARIED THICKNESSES
Many assemblies have parts of various thicknesses that need to be nested. NESTINGWorks can sort the parts in an assembly and automatically group and nest parts of the same thickness.
USER-SPECIFIED GRAIN DIRECTION
Sheet stock has directional material properties that are important in many designs.
ASSOCIATIVITY TO SOLIDWORKS
As your design changes, any NESTINGWorks layouts will update.
COMPATIBILITY WITH DOWNSTREAM MANUFACTURING TOOLS
NESTINGWorks creates 3D SOLIDWORKS® assemblies that can be used to communicate with any manufacturing application.
New in NESTINGWorks 2018:
NESTINGWorks Settings Dialog Box for assigning Default Settings & Parametric values
Provide a mechanism to assign/edit the default parametric values for parameters in the Create
Nesting Job dialog box and internal settings of NESTINGWorks via an easy-to-use user interface in
addition to the existing mechanism of configuration files.
