Optimize Cutting Patterns, Saving Time and Material Costs

In order to create optimized layouts for the two-dimensional cutting of fabrication materials including sheet metal, wood, plastic, fabric, and textiles, Siemens Solid Edge 2D Nesting is a potent standalone module. Fabricators benefit from 2D Nesting’s ability to control material utilization because it saves them time and money.

2D Nesting enables you to choose the most effective nest by removing tailings or partial sheets and allowing you to select a variety of sheet sizes and even odd-shaped sheets. Easily launched from Solid Edge Mechanical Design with a single click, 2D Nesting is tightly linked with the world-class spectrum of products offered by Solid Edge. It is simple and quick to choose which pieces to import for nesting. 2D Nesting automatically extracts flat pattern data from Solid Edge sheet metal and part files (PSM and PAR), as well as neutral data formats like DXF and DWG.
