Nest

OVERVIEW

  

(as of ShipConstructor 2019, includes ManualNest, AutomaticNest and ProfileNest)

Nesting is tightly integrated into the central project database, providing features to nest by assembly, stock, material, surface treatment, port/starboard, like/mirror cut, and full remnant control. Nest provide standard tools to align parts and insert bridges. As of ShipConstructor 2019, the ManualNest, AutomaticNest and ProfileNest capabilities are included with Nest.

BENEFITS


OPTIMIZE MATERIAL USAGE
Settings can be adjusted for material and thickness, for required part gaps, and also for nest edge gaps. These settings, when combined with a configurable automatic nesting engine, provide a high degree of nest and plate utilization. The ability to track and nest on the remnants of any used plate further increases stock utilization and keeps material costs down.

INTEGRATED DESIGN
As changes happen to the 3D project model (including structural changes affecting nested parts, or outfitting changes causing new or modified penetrations in nested parts), individual nests are flagged as requiring attention and the affected parts can either be updated or re-nested as required.  This allows nesting to begin earlier in parallel with outfitting, and respond to any late changes.

PRODUCTION FEEDBACK
NC-Pyros can generate NC-code for a given nest, for virtually any cutting machine. During this stage, the fast travel, mark and cut times for the plate (including time required to pierce the specific material), can be synchronized back to the nest and included in nest reports. This information can be used to optimize the cutting sequence in production planning and estimate the time required for future projects.
