Plate Nesting

The CADMATIC Plate Nesting module is used to nest part geometries fully automatically and to optimize the use of raw plate materials to minimize material waste.

The CADMATIC Plate Nesting module processes the CADMATIC Hull part geometries directly, but also accepts part geometries from other systems in standard DXF file format. The Plate Nesting module offers functionality for creating/modifying part geometries, remnant handling, automatic cutting path creation and generating the NC code for cutting machines. 

Optional features for the CADMATIC Nesting module are Advanced Autonesting, Bevel-3: bevel cutting with a 3-torch flame cutting head, Bevel-1: bevel cutting with a single torch plasma head and Text Marking: marking text with inkjet and similar devices.
