Optimize your sheet metal and flat stock designs with the newest 3D design tool in the SOLIDWORKS environment, NESTINGWorks. It is a fully associative SOLIDWORKS add-in. The software is easy to use and provides industry-leading capabilities to help optimize the design and material usage when laying out parts on a sheet.
NESTINGWorks uses NESTLib®, the industry-leading true-shape 3D technology known as one of the fastest and most fully featured automatic true-shape nesting libraries available in the industry.
Product designers can optimize sheetstock layouts in a more efficient way, including specifications for grain direction. They can produce the largest amount of parts from a single piece of raw material quickly, allowing designers to speed up their production time and minimize material usage
