BobCAD-CAM, Inc., has announced today that they will host a live webinar to provide a detailed look at the company’s new CAD-CAM Nesting Standard and Pro modules. The upcoming CAD-CAM webinar will demonstrate newly available tools and strategies for maximizing material utilization rates and per sheet profits.
Cody Sheppard, Senior Technical Advisor at BobCAD-CAM, will play host to the event which will feature multiple nesting examples and demonstrations on everything from the new nesting optimizers and modern CAM wizards to part-in-part nesting and working with filler parts.
CAD-CAM Webinar Topics:
- Nesting Optimizers: Fast vs. Optimal Nesting
- Remnant Sheets & Custom Sheet Shapes
- Part-In-Part Nesting
- CAM Wizards for Nesting
- Filler Parts
- Nesting with Tabs
- Grain Direction for Wood & Metal Projects
“Nesting is really about two things – getting more parts out of every sheet and reducing the amount of material that gets scrapped,” explains Cody Sheppard. “Depending on the size and shape of your parts, this can get pretty complicated. To improve material usage, we’ve essentially made the software ‘smarter’. By updating the nesting engine and adding optimizers, we’ve increased the intelligence level of the software, resulting in better part placements and faster results.”
Beyond a new nesting engine and optimizers, the new modules also include a host of new features that give the user more control over nearly every aspect of the nest. This includes the ability to generate remnant sheets, work with custom sheet shapes, assign grain direction on wood and metal projects, take thermal aspects into consideration when creating cutting sequences for CNC laser and plasma cutting, and much more.
The new Nesting products are available as add-on modules for BobCAD-CAM’s flagship CAD-CAM product. Visit the Nesting Product Page for more information.
