 Automatic nesting (CAM)
25-03-2013 09:59 . pm | View his/her posts only
Hi,

Is automatic nesting implemented in ZW3D?

The help system tells:

"CAM Feature List
.../...
Parts Nesting
Automatic nesting: Prioritization by area and quantity. Both are user-defined "

but I wasn't able to find any related menu.

Any idea?

TIA

No idea?

Here is the webpage with the CAM specs:

CAM Feature List

Searching for nesting returns no other result.

Hi Tony,

Thanks for answering.

But considering automatic nesting is in the features list (in the help system and in the on-line help) at least since ZW3D 2010, it is at best erroneous, at worst dishonest.

IMHO, you should quickly correct this point.

Knowing you are working on the 2D features is good news.

Best regards,

Didier

imho In the best cases withdraw the version 2013 would be the minimum for consistency toward someone who has always supported with time and money of annual contract

Hi Didier,
Thank you.
We will correct the help file and on-line help files in R17.05 version, which will be planning to release in the middle of April.

Best regards
Tony Tan
