          Nesting tools for Inventor

          Inventor Nesting is CAD-embedded, true-shape nesting software that helps you optimize yield from flat raw material. Available only as part of the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection.

          Inventor Nesting features

          • Automated true-shape nesting

            Generate multiple sheet nests to reduce raw material waste. Optimize the use of materials in flat cutting operations.

            Nest sheet metal parts and assemblies modeled in Inventor or import DXF files, all within the nesting workspace inside Inventor.

          • Smooth workflows for creating cutting paths

            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.

          • Nesting efficiency comparison

            Easily review and compare reports for each nesting study. Get details such as overall efficiency, total cost, and machining time.
