Automatic nesting solution for SolidWorks®

CAMWorks® Nesting is an automatic nesting module designed to nest the layouts of SolidWorks parts or assemblies. It is seamlessly integrated within SolidWorks® and allows nesting of flat or 3D sheet metal parts or assembly models. CAMWorks Nesting uses NestLib®, one of the fastest and most featured automatic true-shape nesting library available in the industry. This module can be used to create efficient layouts of metal, wood, or composite based materials; producing the maximum number of parts from a single piece of raw material within minutes.

Features and benefits

  • Easy to learn and use
  • Part-in-part nesting
  • Fully Automatic true-shape nesting solution
  • Fast Nesting and Optimal Nesting (with time constraint) options
  • Full associativity with SolidWorks® – Updates are tracked and flagged whenever a change is made to the component and are reflected instantly
  • Automatically nests multiple parts, based on the material and thickness; thus eliminating the manual efforts of segregating individual parts
  • Material optimization – Advanced nesting algorithms reduce raw material consumption by providing optimized and compact layouts
  • Improved utilization and increase in productivity

Applications

CAMWorks Nesting can be used in a variety of industries. For example:

  • Aerospace
  • Wood working
  • Composites
