Auto nest choose from different dimension sheets.
« on: Oct 30, 2019, 07:38:23 AM »
As title says, will be great if was possible when auto nesting CAMduct choose from many sheet dimensions to nest. I know this will be time consuming  process, but it will save us lot of waste material.

Yeah, but just now you just have to select the sheet sizes before autonest or use manual nesting and select the sheet size from the pull down.

Are you referring to using remnants of partially used sheets? 
I've never used the remnants feature to know how well it works, but that might be what you're looking for.

Automatic Nesting already has the option "Prompt for new sheet sizes" which does exactly this.

Prompt for new sheets , ask you to choose each sheet size one by one until nest all parts. I mean will be better to have lets say for example 3 different sheet sizes ,and CAMduct auto choose best sizes for less waste.
