Good afternoon! Once, I saved the dxf file and in the title I put the number of parts in brackets (plate 10 pcs.: Plate (10)). Nesting occurs automatically. See to pictures:

Maybe there are more tricks?

Dear Genadijs,

Yes naming part files with a bracket is one method to pre-specify the number of parts to be nested in FastNEST.

We host a Youtube channel, FastCAM TV, that assists with explaining other very useful features in FastCAM, FastNEST, and FastPLOT.

Also to subscribers for FastCAMv8 softwares, we periodically email out Tips and Tricks newsletters.

Maybe this one will be helpful for you and others.

On the numpad on your keyboard, the "+" and "-" buttons are shortcuts to zoom in and zoom out.

As well as the "0/Ins(Insert)" button, that button toggles the zoom level. With Numlock active, Pressing "0/Ins" and then Press "+"/"-" you should see the different in zoom step.
