Interactive Nesting

       After setting the parameters of kerf width, cutting margin compensation and Iteration count; You can automatic nest the parts, and then you can reselect this parts, and manually nest objects.


       MenuTransform > Interactive Nesting




    1. Click Menu【Transform > Interactive Nesting】.

    2. Set the Parameters: Kerf Width, Clearance, Precision.

    3. Select the Stock shape, click Confirm button of Stock.

    4.Select the parts, click Confirm button of Part.

    5. Set the Parameters of the part. Click OK button, auto nesting the parts.

    6. According the nesting results, manually adjust the parts.

    7. Press the “Esc” key, exit the operation


Step Setting: Control the Moving Step: and Rotating Step.

Kerf Width: The tool diameter

Clearance: Set remain which is the shortest distance between the original part and part after machining.

Precision: The precision of interactive nesting. The high precision you set, the better effort you will get .but you will spend more time to calculate it.


X Mirror/Y Mirror: object can be mirrored along x axis or y axis.

Clear: clear selected part. But the outline of part is still left. Select the outline of part and click confirm button, the cleared part can restore.

Rotate 90 deg: rotate part 90 deg, rotation direction is anticlockwise

Keep Top(Tab + ↑): move part to the top of the shape of stock rapidly

Keep Bottom(Tab + ↓): move part to the bottom of the shape of stock rapidly

Keep Left(Tab + ←): move part to the left of the shape of stock rapidly

Keep right(Tab +  →): move part to the right of the shape of stock rapidly


Checking “√” before Show remnant boundary, creates theremnant plate and cutting line.

REMARK: When two objects are too near to each other for machining, you will hear a warning from your computer.
