Inventor Nesting

CAD-embedded, true-shape nesting tools for Inventor

Inventor Nesting helps you optimize yield from flat raw material. Easily compare nesting studies to optimize efficiency and reduce costs and export 3D models or DXF™ files of the completed nest for cutting path generation.

Available only as part of the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection.

  • Generate multiple sheet nests to reduce raw material waste. Optimize the use of materials in flat cutting operations.
  • Create 3D models of a nest and generate cutting paths with Inventor CAM, or export DXF™ files. Use DXF™ files in AutoCAD and other toolpath-making software.
  • Easily review and compare reports for each nesting study. Get details such as overall efficiency, total cost, and machining time.
