Hi everyone, this is the first post of a new thread where we'll notify you of OptiCut and OptiNest feature updates and fixes.

It will always remain at the top of the OptiCut / OptiNest forum.

You can also subscribe below to receive email notifications when we add new messages to this thread.

We've got a specific OptiNest update to report today:

With nesting CNC production you are limited to vertical machining. However, if you want to incorporate manual horizontal drilling e.g. for dowels in your manufacturing process, you need to retain that horizontal machining information in Polyboard so it’s included in your technical documentation in order to process it on another machine.

Previously this horizontal machining data exported along with everything else from Polyboard to OptiNest and in turn from OptiNest to the CAM software, which sometimes caused an issue during production.

In OptiNest 2.31n, now available on our website, it’s possible to exclude the horizontal machining information from OptiNest’s nested DXF output, see below for a screenshot:
