Advanced nesting is a set of features that allow for more efficient methods of cutting parts in a nest. There are methods to keep the tool down in the material for as long as possible while cutting all the profiles of the parts (Staydown). There is also a method to cut in on two parts at the same time by cutting between the parts and spacing the parts so that the cutting tool contacts a part on each side as it moves through the sheet (Common Line). One advanced method involves cutting both sides of a sheet while the parts are still nested together by first cutting one side, then flipping the sheet over and cutting the other side, cutting the parts loose at that time (Backside Nesting). The final advanced method is a procedure that allows you mix multiple parts together, but control the number of parts defined by priority that get mixed into one sheet, allowing you to sort the parts easier as they come off the machine, but still allowing higher yields in the sheet by allowing the maximum number of parts/sizes available to fill the nest (Cart Control Nesting).
Each of these methods are described here along with their required settings.
