NESTINGWORKS

With NESTINGWorks, product designers can efficiently optimize sheet stock 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.

 

CAMWORKS CAM SOFTWARE FOR CNC MACHINING

With single dialog box ease-of-use, NESTINGWorks is extremely simple to use and provides industry leading capabilities to help optimize not only the design, but to also optimize material usage when laying out parts on a sheet.

NESTINGWORKS INCLUDES

  • True Shape Nesting

    To orient parts true to their shape, to optimize how parts can fit on a sheet. Many simple nesting tools just draw a box around a part and nest the box, wasting valuable material.

  • Part in Part Nesting

    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. Specify the grain direction for the sheet and per part to ensure your parts are laid out in the correct orientation.

Camworks Features
  • 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 including SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional. DXFs can also be output if your downstream manufacturing process utilizes 2D layouts.

  • Remnants

    Leftover material from a nested layout can also be output as sketches or DXFs to allow for re-use in a future job. Choose between clean cut, true shape, rectangular or stepped sheet outputs.
