Auto Nesting

       Several objects with various shapes and sizes can be arranged in a selected shape to save material.


      Command:

       MenuTransform > Auto Nesting】                                       Transform Bar


      


     


    Steps

    1. Select all the objects.

    4. Pick the shape of stock.

    5. Set the Parameters.

    6. Click OK button.

Parameters:

Precision: the precision of auto nesting.

Kerf Width: the width of kerf which equal to tool diameter

Clearance: you can set remain which is the shortest distance between the original part and part after machining. (Do not set the value too small; otherwise the material can not be machined properly.)

Step Angle: After setting step angle, objects will be  automatically rotated according to the angle

Iteration count: the more iteration count you set, the better effort you will get .otherwise increase iteration count, and you will spent more time to calculate it.

Mirror: some objects can be automatically mirrored to save the material during auto nesting.

In hole nest: some objects can be automatically nest in hole

Keep old: keep old object after nesting

Create the remnant: creates the remnant plate and cutting line.

Note:

1.Text string  can upgroup to char for nesting

2.the software can automatically avoid the parts in the stock. for example:

Before nesting: there are 4 rectangles in the stock.

After Nesting:
