During import, you can check and fix your parts’ geometry, then batch process them according to your machine type. automatically arranges the parts on your sheets according to material and thickness. You can also organize the parts on your sheets manually. Features such as collision-less mode, remnant management, and in-built warnings help steer you to cost-effective nesting solutions.
Generate NC codes for the resulting nesting solution, simulate it, create detailed production reports, and send your daily job/order to production.
efficiently utilizes the sheet material, saving time and money. Feature-rich includes:
· Importing job orders from ERP/MRP programs
· Creating automatic DXF to NC ( )
· or for optimized solutions
· with small parts
· to reduce material wastage and machine time
· Generating detailed
Daily Job allows you to batch process orders of DFT, DXF, DWG, and other CAD format files.
With Daily Job you can easily process multiple files simultaneously.
With just a few mouse clicks, Daily Job enables you to batch process orders of native , DXF, DWG, and other , including geometry validation (closing open contours), processing (cutting and/or punching), automatic nesting, NC generation, report generation, and sending the processed sheets to production (updating databases and ).
When importing parts for nesting, can automatically update the parts to reflect changes in geometry and processing from .
can load orders generated from ERP/MRP systems or Excel by importing simple comma-separated value (CSV) files.
Fully Automated Nesting provides a variety of nesting methods, from rectangular to advanced True Shape.
is a powerful nesting tool, offering a complete range of versatile methods for automatic and to achieve the best possible nesting solutions – from rectangular to advanced True Shape.
calculates efficient nesting solutions by considering combinations of rotated and mirrored parts, grouping, group arrays, turret-based nesting, part priority, sheet or remnant size and direction and supporting a .
Automatic nesting options:
· Advanced True Shape with
Most of ’s CAM editing functionalities are available in so you can change the tooling and the processing for the whole nest or specific parts.
Editing CAMs includes running Smart Cut: Using this strong feature
determines from which side and corner to enter the parts, and runs part handling for MicroJoints.
automatically positions parts so adjoining edges are processed at the same time with dynamic common cuts.
automatically positions parts so adjoining edges are processed at the same time, thereby saving material, machine time, cutting gas, and electricity, as well as wear on tools.
calculates and shows the common cuts automatically, any time you manually move or place a part on the sheet.
The dynamic common cuts are automatically regenerated when moving parts from one location to another.
The remnant handling feature allows you to save partially used sheets for future nesting solutions.
When you run automatic nesting to place the parts on the sheet, allows you to manage the remainder of the sheet material so that it is not wasted.
Multiple sheet solutions can be generated on different sheet sizes. selects them automatically for efficiency and the minimal number of SubNests.
Parts from different materials are sorted automatically and nested on appropriate sheets.
allows you to position individual parts and groups of parts interactively. You maintain control over the nesting process, by dragging, rotating, mirroring, aligning, arraying, and grouping parts.
arranges parts on the SubNests, calculating the solution based on the restrictions dictated by the particular machine turret.
Nest According to Turret Restrictions feature applies to punch machines, for avoiding unnecessary tool changes.
arranges parts on the sheets, minimizing number of tool replacements in the turret, calculating the solution based on restrictions (number of stations, their sizes, and auto-index) dictated by the particular machine turret.
Easily nest your tubes in .
lets you easily nest your tubes.
Tubes can be imported directly from , from , or from CAD programs (such as SOLIDWORKS, Solid Edge, PTC Creo, and Autodesk Inventor) via . They can be batch processed via the and automatically nested with . The automatic process identifies the different tube part profiles, material, and thickness, and nests them accordingly, rotating and flipping tube parts for the best and most efficient solutions. You generate NC for tube nests and preview them on tube nesting reports.
Detailed reports include all necessary production information for individual SubNests or the entire order.
reports can be generated in DOC, XLS, XLSX, and TXT formats, and you can freely edit them, adding parameters, data, and graphics such as your logo.
The templates are fully customizable, with practically every detail of the part(s) and machine available for display.
· Order and SubNest reports
· Barcode reports
· Label reports
· Plain text reports for ERP/PDM integration
