Nesting is a process by which flat part profiles are positioned in an optimal way in order to reduce the waste of raw material. Inventor Nesting is CAD-embedded, true-shape nesting software that helps you optimize yield from flat raw material by optimally laying flat patterns on a sheet of raw material such as sheet metal, wood panels and others. This course will introduce you to the workflows associated with creating, modifying and exporting a nesting study within Inventor Nesting.
Having completed this course, you will be able to:
- Prepare a nesting study using Inventor Nesting
- Understand the steps required to manufacture your nesting results
- Understand best practices for 3rd party file formats
The first module in this course will introduce you to the core concepts of Inventor Nesting, enabling you prepare and complete your first nesting study.
Having completed your nesting study, this module will cover the workflow steps required to prepare the nested components for manufacture using both milling and cutting operations.
This module will demonstrate how you can make modifications to an existing nesting study and the steps required for exporting the results to 3rd party formats to support manufacturing.
This module will demonstrate how you can develop a nesting study from existing 3rd party file formats such as .dxf.
