NESTINGWorks software utilitises the industry-leading NESTLib® true-shape 3D technology - known worldwide as one of the quickest and most fully featured automatic true-shape nesting libraries available within this industry.
NESTINGWorks gives product designers the ability to optimise sheetstock layouts, inclding specifications for grain direction, so the maximum number of parts from a single piece of raw material can be produced in a matter of minutes. This not only saves time, but it also minimises material usage.
True Shape Nesting
Orient parts true to shape to optimise 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.
Auto Layout of Parts with Varying Thickness
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.
Enables the ability to maximise material usage by fitting smaller parts in open areas and cut-outs on larger parts of the same thickness.
Associativity with SOLIDWORKS
As your design changes, any NESTINGWorks layouts will update. Also compatible with downstream manufacturing tools.
Compatibility with Downstream Manufacturing Tools
NESTINGWorks creates 3D SOLIDWORKS assemblies that can be used to communicate with any manufacturing application.
