Nesting add-on module for VisualMILL

VisualCAM-NEST 2016 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-NEST 2016 saves the resultant nested geometry for follow-up applications use such as machining or fabrication.

New in this version

  • Dot annotation tagging has been introduced
  • We now allow preview of tags during preview of the nesting
  • Maintaining color properties when parts are nested to sheet
  • Maintaining group properties of curves in Rhino when parts are nested to sheet
  • To be able to use nesting for engraving & sign making, we would need the ability to nest curves inside a hole as shown below. So the rectangle would be the part, the exterior & interior of the letters would have to be treated as holes. This has been implemented.
  • We now allow holes or children to be partially inside the part and not enforce complete enclosure in the part. This situation happens in cabinet work when grooves sometimes stick out of the parts.
  • We now have the ability to create the sheets and nested parts in the original layer. This means each sheet will NOT be created in a new layer. The original layer, group and color properties of the parts and sheets will be maintained.
  • A new option to arrange the sheets along X, along Y or Stack as we do now has been implemented. Stack will be disabled when user selects not to create separate layers for each sheet in 1 above. All three options will be enabled when the user elects to create each sheet in a separate layer or group.
