Nest 1D

Digitally signed app



Any uniform profile material cutting can be analyzed with Nest 1D. Any material which comes in standard lengths or rolls like Rods, Beams, Tubes, Bars or any other uniform profile material lengths can be optimized with Nest 1D

Ease of use:

Nest 1D has an intuitive user interface which makes it easy to use and the optimization is very fast and efficient even with thousands of items to calculate.

Once the optimization has been done a report can be exported as an Excel file for printing, and distribution of further work. The report includes cutting instructions per stock length and also a total stock required area for costing or ordering purposes.

CAD Integration and Data Entry:

Besides being able to enter data manually into Nest 1D or reading in data from an Excel file, Nest 1D can also pull data directly from Autodesk® Inventor® Parts Only BOM. This speeds up the process dramatically and also avoids any finger trouble with data entry. More CAD integration is to be added soon.


Note: This app uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer).

  • so far so good

    have only had a quick play but looksto do the job, my custom profiles dont seem to work but i think thats because i havent set them up correctly.

    would like to know if possible to combine assemblies to get a cutting list for multiple jobs, lets say you have created 4 gate frames and want to have factory cut all the stock for them.

    maybe there is a work around for that??

    Hi Darren, Thanks for the review. One way to handle that is to insert all your assemblies into a dummy assembly, basically combining all your "jobs" into one assembly. You can then use that assembly to get all the items you want to optimize.

  • Simply amazing!

    I installed this tool today and im already in love, saves so much time and material. a few things that would make this tool even better;

    Price per meter or kg per tube size, Material waste/usage in KG, and the ability to nest mitered tubes (though I understand this gets complicated quickly)

    but even without these features this is an awesome, easy to use tool!

    I work with frame generator eveyday. Is there anyway to save off-cut data and use it as stock for next job? Thank you for the app. Its simply amazing

    Pieter van der Westhuizen (Publisher) | May 05, 2022

    Thanks for the great rating. The idea to put the offcut pieces back into stock is already on the list of things to do. Do you mind emailing us so that we can discuss your specific requirements regarding this?
