Pattern Nesting

  • Included in Pro
  • Easily group and rotate parts together
  • Create a local grid of grouped parts

Feature-Based Processes

 

  • Included in Pro
  • Define custom toolpath processes with different feed rates, corner styles, lead-in generation, and more
  • Use multiple processes for different features within the same nest (even within the same part)
  • Automatically load cut parameters directly from G-Code
  • Quickly edit process settings in CNC and view proper consumables

Skeleton / Free Cut

  • Included in Pro
  • Skeleton Cut Effortlessly cut scrap material into manageable pieces.
  • Automatically recognizes parts and cutouts so it only cuts through the scrap remnant.Use Free Cut to separate “clean” parts of remnant.

Nesting Boundary

  • Included in Pro
  • Shows actual boundary around each toolpath and lead- in / lead out used for True-Shape Nesting.
  • Automatically changes with part spacing and geometry detail settings.

Separate Pierces and Cuts

  • Included in Pro
  • Separate operations so all pierces can be done before profiling.
  • Allows for operator to remove topside dross from pierces before profiling.
  • All profile cutting after piercing could be edge cuts.

Puddle Jumping

  • Included in Pro
  • Holds pierce height over molten puddle in thick material
  • Goes down to cut height after puddle jump distance is cleared
