Nesting add-on module for VisualMILL

VisualCAM 2018 NESTVisualCAM 2018 NEST is MecSoft's cost effective solution for optimally arranging and fitting geometric shapes onto sheets of stock material. It provides two primary nesting capabilities: Rectangular Nesting and True Shape Nesting. For both solutions, individual 2D CAD shapes can be arranged on sheets according to user-defined quantities, spacing, and with orientation control, including material grain restrictions.
Rectangular Nesting
Very fast and useful in cases where the 2D shapes are basically rectangular, such as nesting panels for the assembly furniture industry.
True Shape Nesting
Considers the true shape of the 2D parts to be nested and can place smaller parts within cutouts of larger parts and can also accept true shape remnants as material sheets. VisualCAM 2018 NEST saves the resultant nested geometry for follow-up applications use such as machining or fabrication.
