Ucannest mainly applies in numerical control cutting machines,such as CNC plasma cutting machines, laser cutting machines,wire cutting machines, water jet and so on. It has integrated various functions: drawing, text editing and node editing,auto nesting; advanced cutting process; creation and simulation of paths, etc. Like other software designed by Ucancam software Technology Co.,Ltd, UcanNest V9 has carried on the advantages of the previous versions which is quite easy to learn and use. For your convenience, it is also compatible with CAD programs. UcanNest V9 popularizes itself through its abundant advantages like easy to learn and use, low price of better performance and good after-sale service. Hereby we would like to illustrate its features as follows:


Drawing & Editing
UcanNest V9 is compatible with CAD programs so that it does
not require any third party CAD packages. Besides many files
can be imported into UcanNest V9, such as vector files: dxf,
eps, plt, AI and bitmap format files: jpg, bmp, tif, png.
Image Processing
Functions of image processing include Image tracing, Convert
into grayscale image, Threshold, Brightness and Contrast adjustment.
With these functions, you can extract contour of the figure,
and then get the target cutting figure you want after node editing.
Equation Curve
The software can automatically generate the curve described
in the equation like this:

{ X=fx(t)
{ R=r(t)
Y=fy(t) θ=theta(t)
Z=fz(t) Z=Z(t)
It includes Array duplication、Duplication along a line、Duplication
along an Arc、Duplication along a spiral curve.
Serial number text
This function is used for making some designs of serial number
Duplication along
a curve

A kind of duplication tools, you can arrange the objects along
a line or a curve. With these functions, you can work out well-regulated
and handsome graphs.(More)

Artistic transformation
Just like the changeful life. We have to do some complex change
when design. Here we offer Perspective Distortion, Envelop Distortion,
Push and Pull Distortion and Twist Distortion. (More)

Locate and align
in dragging

While moving, scaling entities, if you hold Atl key, Ucancam
can snap feature point as the start, end point of moving,
allows you movling precisely, So as to realize fast nesting.(More)


Font: Using Unicode encoding, and the system
font; providing a variety of single font
Text Editing: Including word size, word spacing,
line spacing, horizontal and vertical, alignment and so on.
Text Composition: Along a curve, inside a
box, reverse arrangement and texts in sequence.
Text Properties: Arbitrary scaling text size,
text attributes remnant unchanged; text can be converted into
Geometry constraint and dimension constraint.(More)
You can trim out any parts you do not need by the user-friendly
Boolean operation
Boolean operation includes join, common, not common and subtract.

Auto Nesting
1) Parameters setting such as kerf width, cutting margin compensation
and Iteration count;
2) Nesting method setting: starting point ((left bottom, right
bottom, left up, right up), direction: X direction and Y direction;
3) Precise calculation, such as inside hole nesting, to improve
the efficiency of working and utilization rate of material.
4)After nesting, A most economical line and an excess material
graphic can be generated automatically.
bump the selected object to the top \bottom\left\righ of the
other object rapidly, you can maximize the cutting materials
,reduce waste .(More)

This is one of the particular function in UcanNest V9.It provides
the solution for cutting bevels and solution for cut in/out.
With node editing function, chamfer and fillet can be generated
accurately and extracted contour can be edited quickly.
Solution for Cutting bevels
Solution for Cut in/out

The parameters of the length of cut in/out line and rounded
angle radius can be set accurately. Multi-node can be edited
Node Editing
node editing function, you can edit extracted contour of figure
accurately and arbitrarily. You also can change the shape of
cut in/out line and select any node as the starting point for
Bridge is to minimize the wear and tear on consumable items
in cutting process. The number of pierce holes can be reduced
by using bridge or break-out bridge. The minimum bridge width
should be larger than kerf value. The length of Cut in/out line
should be set respectively.
Setting position and width of Break-out Bridge arbitrarily;
Reducing the piercing of the holes in oxy flame cutting and
consumed electricity in plasma cutting for effective improvement
of productivity and expenses on consumable parts.
Cut in/out
UcanNest V9 provide many types of cut in/out. Cut-in position
and cut-out position can be selected arbitrarily
of Cut in/out

It can be straight line, Arc or others. Parameters as the length
of line, angle of line (0—90) and radius of arc can be set accurately.
Continuous Cutting
Entering the shortest distance value between cut-out of last
part and cut-in of the next part to facilitate the possibility
of continuous cutting, can reduce the number of pierce holes
in oxy flame cutting and save nozzle for effective improvement
of productivity and expenses on consumable parts.
Common edge cutting
Trim the common edge, then create the path to realize the common
edge cut.(More)
Intelligent Function
When generating a path for a figure with both internal outline
and external outline, UcanNest V9 will calculate path for internal
outline and external outline respectively and add cut inline
for them. Internal outline is in inner so that you need not
define internal outline and external outline in person.


This function includes auto path and manual path.
Auto path
Auto Path can generate the cutting path automatically. It
can be classified into On, Outside and Inside according to
relationships between the torch center axis and the contour.

Manual path
The parameters of it include Offset compensation (left, right,
none) and Processing speed. When doing manual setting for
cutting path, you can cancel the action and re-select direction
of travel and you also can change the direction of travel
by changing the direction of arrow and broken line, So that
under the instruction of manual path, it is easier to generate
the path for common cutting.

Path Edit
We can edit generated path. Such as Path Sequence, Path Panel,
Group Path, Ungroup Path and path stat.
Path Sequence
Tool path sequence can be adjusted so as to improve machining
process and machining quality. The sequence number of path is
shown at the beginning of start point for processing so that
the sequence number is easy to change.
Path Panel
Path panel is used to divide a path into several smaller portions
so that you can machine materials accurately even when the work
area of your machine is not big enough. After machining, you
can combine the portions together to form a complete one. In
this way, not only machining time is reduced, but efficiency
is improved.
Group Path and Ungroup Path
You can group several paths as one unit for machining. You also
can output several paths respectively.
Path Stat.
With Path Stat., the UcanNest V9 can show all the length of
path, rapid move distance, piercing hole count, cutting time,so
that we can evaluate the efficiency of path.
Path Walk Simulation
Machining path can be previewed though path walk simulation,
which can avoid machining errors and reducing fault. Simulation
speed can be changed.
Path Output
Machine processing (cutting, pre-pierce, marker) cutting speed,
fast speed; original point based on a special point or precise
positioning output.
Cutting—common machine processing
Pre-pierce—we can utilize the used nozzles to finish the
holes first and then continue cutting with the good nozzle,
so that nozzle can be saved.
Marker—draw the outline of figure. It is an inspection before
Post Set
Software generates G code and M direction. You can add different
types of device as you required. Set parameters for Opening
fire and Closing fire.
Files’ types can be *.nc 、*.txt or others.
You can check or un-check generated speed command.
Symbol Library
About 10 thousand symbols are provided in UcanNest V9, including
trade marks, auto brands, animals and plants, furniture, human
figures, etc. Users can also create their own symbols and save
them to My Library.

In Ucancam, you can create graphs on different layers that can
exist together. You can add or delete layers so as to perform
operations on many objects at the same time.
