Automatic piece positioning
The additional module for automatic positioning of pieces in order to minimize waste.
DDXNest is the additional module of EasyWOOD and EasySTONE for automatic positioning of pieces in order to minimize waste.
DDXNest is available in three levels:
- GENERIC SHAPES INTERACTIVE NESTING
- GENERIC SHAPES AUTOMATIC NESTING STANDARD
- GENERIC SHAPES AUTOMATIC NESTING ADVANCED
The INTERACTIVE NESTING allows the operator to do a manual positioning of the pieces using the function of rotation, move, mirror, align, automatic magnet, multiple copy etc.
The AUTOMATIC NESTING does automatic positioning of the pieces. The operator can modify manually the initial positioning or to position some pieces manually and then do the automatic nesting of the other pieces.
The list of the pieces can be imported as CSV file or defined by choosing some DDX projects, DXF files, DDX parametric components, or simply by creating rectangular pieces with defined width and high. Thickness, quantity, material, label, rotation limits, mirror operation if allowed can be defined for each workpiece. With DDXNest it is also possible to specify the inclined linear sides and the type of tool used for cutting (blade or mill). The distance between two near pieces depends on the inclination, on the diameter or on the thickness of the tool used for cutting. In case of blade cutting the software considers the blade imprint during the positioning of the pieces.
