Minimise material waste with true shape nesting
Fully manufactured parts directly on your CNC machine
Interfaces directly with our Polyboard cabinet and furniture design software
Stop wasting money, time
It's not only material savings you'll make with OptiNest.
Nesting optimisation will increase throughput, boost quality control as you create the right parts every single time, reduce programming time compared with your current method and reduce overheads as you minimise machine usage and wear.
At the end of the day, more cash in your pocket.

OptiNest's Key Features
Optimise according to your own priorities
OptiNest's adaptable algorithms, make it possible to ajuste optimisation to your specific needs. If cutting very expensive material put the priority on minimising waste, if cutting cheaper materials on expensive CNC optimise the machine cutting time, if you have a lot of parts to nest minimise the nesting calculation time.
The 'Optimization Parameters' window’s main items on the left show how to choose the priorities that suit your manufacturing process to balance optimisation and speed requirements to suit your needs.
This makes the difference between truly industrial grade nesting.
Pieces grouping function
Pieces are paired to create 'virtual pieces', which in turn will be used as single pieces during the optimisation process.
Propagation describes the placing method of a single piece produced in large quantities, minimising the off cut rate between pieces.
As a general rule, the piece is grouped with itself, then the grouping is propagated along 2 axes.
The larger the panel size, the greater the level of optimisation you'll obtain.
Pieces direct entry
Parts can be imported from DXF files or drawn directly in Optinest's graphic editor.
Parts can be drawn with any shape and cut out. To fully minimise waste, Optinest will also use the cut outs to nest parts if possible.
Rotations and reversals
Rotation and reversal parameters define the permitted part movements, rotations and flipping.
OptiNest accommodates 4 rotation levels and flipping.
OptiNest can manage bored pieces. Holes are treated as a specific tooling type.
The software also recovers the material freed by pieces holes, and re-uses it to place smaller pieces.
Nesting Maps DXF Export
The nesting maps created by OptiNest may be exported in DXF format, and then transferred either to your CAD software or CNC tooling machine.
