NESTINGWorks software leverages Geometric’s industry-leading NESTLib® true-shape 3D technology — known to nesting application developers worldwide as one of the fastest and most fully featured automatic true-shape nesting libraries available in the industry. With NESTINGWorks, product designers can efficiently optimize sheetstock layouts — including specifications for grain direction — so they can produce the maximum number of parts from a single piece of raw material in a matter of minutes, saving time, while simultaneously minimizing material usage.

Featured Solutions

Simply Easier

With single dialog box ease-of-use, NESTINGWorks is extremely simple to use and provides industry leading capabilities to help optimize not only the design, but to also optimize material usage when laying out parts on a sheet.

Compatible Downstream

Compatibility with downstream manufacturing tools. NESTINGWorks creates 3D SOLIDWORKS assemblies that can be used to communicate with any manufacturing application.
 

3D Nesting

Unlike other nesting applications that use 2D layouts, NESTINGWorks software provides 3D true-shape layouts, which lets designers nest parts of varying thicknesses.

Save Material & Time

With single dialog box ease-of-use, NESTINGWorks is extremely simple to use and provides industry leading capabilities to help optimize not only the design, but to also optimize material usage when laying out parts on a sheet.

NestingWorks Capabilities

True Shape Nesting

Orient parts true to shape, to 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.

Auto Layout of Parts of Varying Thickness

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.

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 with SOLIDWORKS

As your design changes, any NESTINGWorks layouts will update. Also compatible with downstream manufacturing tools.
