Features of CAMWorks Nesting 2013 SP1.0




Automatic nesting optimization




One of the main features of CAMWorks Nesting 2013 SP1.0 is its ability to automate the entire nesting process to get to the "what fits, where" solution. This means that you don't have to manually arrange your parts and assemblies on a sheet of material, but but let CAMWorks Nesting do the work for you. CAMWorks Nesting can automatically nest your parts and assemblies based on various parameters and options that you can define, such as:



  • Sheet size: You can specify the size of the sheet of material that you want to use for nesting, or choose from a list of standard sizes.



  • Orientation: You can specify the orientation of the parts and assemblies on the sheet, or let CAMWorks Nesting choose the best orientation for you.



  • Spacing: You can specify the minimum spacing between the parts and assemblies on the sheet, or let CAMWorks Nesting optimize the spacing for you.



  • Quantity: You can specify the quantity of each part and assembly that you want to nest, or let CAMWorks Nesting calculate the optimal quantity for you.



  • Priority: You can specify the priority of each part and assembly that you want to nest, or let CAMWorks Nesting assign the priority for you.



But that's not all. CAMWorks Nesting 2013 SP1.0 also has a unique feature that can design a part to fit a specified tolerance and specify the maximum amount of distance to cut a component. This means that you can adjust the size and shape of your parts and assemblies to fit within a certain range of dimensions and reduce the amount of material that needs to be cut. This can help you save material, time, and money.


In-Place Material Library with advanced 3D material nesting options




Another feature of CAMWorks Nesting 2013 SP1.0 is its in-place material library that allows you to export flat sheet metal libraries in SolidWorks format and use them in SolidWorks parts and assemblies. This means that you can create and edit your own material libraries in SolidWorks and use them in CAMWorks Nesting without having to switch between different software applications.


CAMWorks Nesting 2013 SP1.0 also supports advanced 3D material nesting options that allow you to input material properties for NESTINGWorks to take advantage of in CAMWorks. This means that you can specify the thickness, density, cost, color, and other properties of your materials and use them in your nesting projects. This can help you optimize your material usage and cost estimation.


CADG-RT nesting support with tolerance compensation




CAMWorks Nesting 2013 SP1.0 also supports CADG-RT nesting with tolerance compensation. CADG-RT is a proprietary technology developed by Geometric Ltd., the parent company of CAMWorks, that enables high-quality geometric modeling and processing. CADG-RT nesting with tolerance compensation allows you to nest parts and assemblies with complex shapes and curves without compromising on quality or accuracy.


CADG-RT nesting with tolerance compensation can reduce material waste and improve quality by compensating for the tolerances between the actual part geometry and the nested geometry. This means that you can avoid gaps, overlaps, or misalignments between your parts and assemblies on the sheet of material. This can help you achieve better fit and finish for your projects.


Speed optimization of NESTINGWorks




Last but not least, CAMWorks Nesting 2013 SP1.0 also improves the performance and efficiency of NESTINGWorks by using multi-threading and an upgraded interface. Multi-threading allows NESTINGWorks to utilize multiple cores of your processor to speed up the nesting process. This means that you can generate nests faster and more smoothly than before.


The upgraded interface of NESTINGWorks also makes it easier and more intuitive to use. The interface has been redesigned to be more user-friendly and consistent with SolidWorks. You can access all the features and options of NESTINGWorks from a single menu item under the "File" menu in SolidWorks. You can also customize the interface to suit your preferences and workflow.
