FastNest plate size

Emily shared this question 8 months ago
In Progress

Hi there,


I am trying to nest some pieces in FastNEST. The size of plate out cutter takes is 12m x 3m, however the largest plate size I can enter is 6m x 1.8m. Is there any way to make the plate size larger?


Thanks

Emily

Hi Emily,

Can you please let me know your dongle number? It is quite likely that you have an OEM dongle that has a plate size limitation, and you cannot use a plate larger that 6m x 1.8m.

If you needed to go up you would need to purchase the latest FastCAM 8, which would have no limitation. You can find more information on FastCAM 8 here:

Hi Emily,

Yes that dongle has a Plate size limitation, which is locked to the dongle.

If you need to program a larger sheet, you would need an upgraded license, for which you would need FastCAM 8, either Standard or Professional.

Let me know if you have questions, and feel free to give our Melbourne office a call:
