Advanced Nesting for Design, Prototyping and Manufacturing Nested Parts Inside SOLIDWORKS
NESTINGWorks software leverages Geometric’s industry-leading NESTLib® true-shape 3D technology — known to nesting application developers worldwide as one of the fastest and most fully featured automatic true-shape nesting libraries available in the industry.
With NESTINGWorks, product designers can efficiently optimize sheetstock layouts — including specifications for grain direction — so they can produce the maximum number of parts from a single piece of raw material in a matter of minutes, saving time, while simultaneously minimizing material usage
To 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
Enable the ability to maximize material usage by fitting smaller parts in open areas and cutouts on larger parts of the same thickness
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
Sheet stock has directional material properties that are important in many designs
As your design changes, any NESTINGWorks layouts will update
