Nestingworks-1

NESTINGWorks Software License – An HCL Technologies Product

NESTINGWorks saves time and expense by reducing the steps involved in optimising material usage on sheet layouts.

THE NEWEST 3D DESIGN TOOL IN THE SOLIDWORKS ENVIRONMENT TO HELP OPTIMIZE MATERIAL DESIGNS

Key Capabilities

Orient parts true to shape, to optimize how parts can fit on a shape. Many simple nesting tools just draw a box around a part and nest the box, wasting valuable material.

Many assemblies have parts of various thicknesses that need to be nested. NESTINGWorks can sort the parts in an assembly and automatically group and nest parts of the same thickness.

Enables the ability to maximize material usage by fitting smaller parts in open areas and cutouts on larger parts of the same thickness.

As your design changes, any NESTINGWorks layouts will update. Also compatible with downstream manufacturing tools.

Introduction

ADVANTAGES WITH NESTINGWORKS

With single dialog box ease-of-use, NESTINGWorks is extremely simple to use and provides industry leading capabilities to help optimize not only the design, but to also optimize material usage when laying out parts on a sheet.

Unlike other nesting applications that use 2D layouts, NESTINGWorks software provides 3D true-shape layouts, which lets designers nest parts of varying thicknesses.

Designers can optimize designs from material usage early in the design cycle.

Compatibility with downstream manufacturing tools. NESTINGWorks creates 3D SOLIDWORKS assemblies that can be used to communicate with any manufacturing application.

What our customers are saying

“NESTINGWorks gives us a process that is near enough instant. Before we were using a very old outdated version of P.E.P.S and doing all our nesting manually which was a nightmare. We’d spend long periods of the development trying to make it all fit. Now with NESTINGWorks we can visually see how much utilisation we are getting from a sheet and it all sits within SOLIDWORKS, so if we are changing any parts, the layouts are updated too. We are also able to save time by not converting everything into a DXF file type, so we get more time to focus on the design.”
