Multi-component sheet metal nesting - November 15th, 2022

What's new?

Our new multi-component sheet metal nesting module is a powerful feature set that enables you to optimize the cost of material and labor of sheet metal parts by predicting shared cutting patterns of many components out of the same sheet of material.

Note: The multi-component sheet metal nesting module (including nest-compatible operations) requires account-specific configuration and setup. To learn more, or to inquire about adding nesting to your account, reach out to our Support team.

With multi-component sheet metal nesting, you can now:

  • Browse all sheet-metal-nesting-compatible parts within a single quote
  • Select components you'd like to nest together and fill out a form to control the nest
  • Browse key results from generated nests, including sheet usage, cost distribution, and required stock quantity

Generating nests will then optimize nest-eligible operations within the quote.

As part of this release, you can also view the results of a sheet metal interrogation directly from the Build a Quote page.
