Introducing NESTINGWorks

Advanced Nesting for Design, Prototyping & Manufacturing Nested Parts Inside SOLIDWORKS

What is NESTINGWorks?

NESTINGWorks is a fully associative SOLIDWORKS Add-In to help designers and engineers get to manufactured products more quickly and optimize material usage.

With single dialog box ease-of-use coupled with advanced nesting capabilities, and low price point, it makes perfect sense to use for design-for-manufacturing (DFM) investigations, preparation for sheet goods prototyping and preparation for manufacturing.

NESTINGWorks Applications

NESTINGWorks can be used for nesting composites, wood and metals; and can produce the maximum number of parts from any standard or custom sheet good.

Being fully integrated with SOLIDWORKS means that if your parts change the nested sheets will update as well.

NESTINGWorks Features

TRUE SHAPE NESTING

Allows you to orient parts true to shape, and optimize how parts can fit on a shape. Many simple nesting tools just draw a box around a part and nest the box, wasting valuable material.

USER-SPECIFIED GRAIN DIRECTION

Sheet stock has directional material properties that are important in many designs.

PART-IN-PART NESTING

Enables the ability to maximize material usage by fitting smaller parts in open areas and cutouts on larger parts of the same thickness.

ASSOCIATIVITY TO SOLIDWORKS

As your design changes, any NESTINGWorks layouts will update in your SOLIDWORKS software.

AUTOMATIC LAYOUT OF PARTS WITH VARIED THICKNESSES

Many assemblies have parts of various thicknesses that need to be nested.  NESTINGWorks can sort the parts in an assembly and automatically group and nest parts of the same thickness.

COMPATIBILITY WITH DOWNSTREAM MANUFACTURING TOOLS

As your design changes, any NESTINGWorks layouts will update in your SOLIDWORKS software.

NESTINGWorks Benefits

Streamline Design Cycle:

Work out issues associated to efficient material usage with NESTINGWorks early on in the design cycle

Save Time and Money:

NESTINGWorks cuts down on the time it takes to do “What if Scenerios” with flat stock sheet usage and can rapidly nest parts for prototype and manufacturing efforts, as well as save in material usage during manufacture.

Implement Immediately:

Easily add to your existing SOLIDWORKS software and use the single dialog box to nest your designs.
