DDXNest includes slab store management referring to thickness, material and category. It is also possible to link the realistic picture of the slab to the piece, to define the perimeter and then to mark the area where nesting is not possible.
DDXNest is true shape, it can manage more slabs at the same time and it can recover the scraps and save them in the scrap store. The scrap minimum dimensions can be set according to the requirements of the end user; it also possible to select one or more pieces just to fill the free place of the slab instead of recovering the scrap.
The list of the pieces can be imported as CSV file or defined by choosing some DDX projects, DXF files, DDX parametric components, or simply by creating rectangular pieces with defined width and high. Thickness, quantity, material, label, rotation limits, mirror operation if allowed can be defined for each workpiece. With DDXNest it is also possible to specify the inclined linear sides and the type of tool used for cutting (blade or mill). The distance between two near pieces depends on the inclination, on the diameter or on the thickness of the tool used for cutting. In case of blade cutting the software considers the blade imprint during the positioning of the pieces.
DDXNest allows the preview of the piece with the correct veins and the modification of the slab position. This preview can be printed and exported as file format JPG, BMP, etc.
