Geometric has announced the release of Nestlib 2010 R1, with improvements in material utilisation for sheet metal punching and inventory management.

Nestlib is a nesting software library that focuses on optimising two-dimensional packaging.

This latest release of Nestlib incorporates a number of features, important fixes and updates, as well as performance improvement measures.

These include multiple corner nesting and inventory forecasting support with an edge-matching feature to increase material utilisation and reduce material cost for the woodwork industry.

User controls have been advanced including run-time local area selection for every orientation of a part in the Common Punch module.

This feature will assist punch machine users to control the nesting of a specific part in the entire nested layout.

Nesting reports in PDF format can be directly generated from the Nestlib evaluation program.

This will allow customers to store the nested reports on their computers for easy reference and sharing.

An inventory forecasting module that identifies the best sheet size to be used for a given order can now be used for orders with different part materials and thickness.

Nestlib provides matchless, high-speed and powerful algorithms for fully automated True Shape nesting.

The Nestlib portfolio consists of a base module and a set of optional advanced modules, each of which provides specialised functionality.

These include: a shear nesting module for saw parts requiring end-to-end cutting; a Common Punch module specially designed for parts to be cut using punching machines; a leather nesting module for leather parts with different quality patterns; a remnant generation module for automatic remnant creation after nesting; a tube nesting module for tube cutting and pipe cutting; and a Common Cut module for nesting adjacent parts so that they share a common flame path.

Nestlib is available as a static library, dynamic linked library (DLL) and COM DLL.

It supports Java and the .Net framework.

Nestlib is available for 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows OS as well as for Sun Solaris and Linux platforms.

It can be ported to Mac OS on demand.

Nestlib also supports multi-core computing for both dual-core and quad-core computers.
