Nesting Flat Parts in Mastercam – Flat Pattern Skills 

Nesting Flat Parts in Mastercam - Flat Pattern Skills

The process of nesting flat parts plays a significant role in maximizing material usage and minimizing waste. Learn how to effectively set up and execute a nesting operation using Mastercam software with a focus on laser cutting. 

 

To begin the nesting process, the first step involves defining the basic sheet size, grain direction, nesting corner, fill direction, sheet to sheet distance, and sheet margin. Once the basic sheet parameters are set, the next step is to import the parts and adjust quantities, grain direction, part-to-part distance, and other specifications for each individual part. After arranging the parts on the sheet, running a simulation and verification process helps in identifying any potential errors or areas for improvement. This iterative process allows for adjustments to be made before finalizing the nesting layout and generating the toolpath for production.
