We are now using Polyboard and Optinest for almost all of our projects and it is speeding up our workflow. Although we now seem to be spending an unreasonable amount of time editing our exports from this …..

into something that is actually usable like this

Our old nesting software would scale the text to keep it within the size of the perimeter of the piece. Examples below – This was nested using MyNesting and always worked well no matters the different in panel size

This would save us hours a week and is a very frustrating task and feels like the current feature doesnt work. Is there a better way around the current process – we have looked as using labels but we often cut many very similar looking panels so having a “map” of where each part is nested is still vital. We currently print out a copy of the nest – cut it up and stick it on to each panel.
