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).
