Nesting with Fast Net

Hi


I tried to do a nesting with fast net, and facing some issues;


1. How to rotate the plate outline. I can rotate the part individually , but I couldn't rotate the plate

2. Please see the attached cad files there are 2 parts, after nesting the combined parts I would like to nest the small in the remaining space. How to seperate the small part ?

Kind Regards

Kiri

Hi Kiri

1. There's no rotate plate outline as such. You can use a larger width than length if that suits.

Or you can use your CNC controller's own functions to rotate your entire NC program when you load it into your CNC controller..


2. You need to have the small part as well on own file. Then you can separately add the small part into your parts list as well.

If you only have the combined parts CAD file, you can use FastCAM's Extract Part Function. From Block's menu. It will assist you with extracting a part into its own file from a file with many parts.

Hi Jackson,

Thanks for your response.

In my system plate horizontal length 2.4 and vertical 1.2 m . How can I change it to horizontal 1.2 and vertical 2.4 m.


Kind Regards

From Plate Data Screen, edit Length, and Width as you need.
