Do you use Inventor Professional as part of the Autodesk Product Design and Manufacturing Collection? Are you looking to minimize waste? Do you use tools such as laser, plasma and water jet? Do you want to create nests without leaving the design platform? Would you like to maintain associativity to the 3D model?
If you said yes to any of the above questions, then the Nesting Utility could be just what you are looking for. This blog will highlight the core functionality of this fantastic tool.
Automated true shape nesting
This allows users to generate multiple sheet nests to reduce material waste and optimize the use of materials in flat cutting operations.
Inventor Integration and AnyCAD
This means that nest sheet metal parts and assemblies modeled in Inventor of import DXF files can be accessed within the nesting workspace inside Inventor.
Smooth workflows for creating cutting paths
Create 3D models of a nest and generate cutting paths with Inventor HSM, or export DXF files in AutoCAD and other toolpath making software.
Nesting efficiency comparison
Easily review and compare reports for each nesting study. Get details such as overall efficiency, total cost, and machining time.
