Alphacam Nesting Engine Provides Faster Calculation Times

Originally titled 'Nesting Engine Provides Faster Calculation Times'

Vero’s Alphacam 2018 R2 nesting engine has enhancements to the software’s dimensioning system that provide greater clarity when printing and presenting information.

Vero’s Alphacam 2018 R2 nesting engine shows a 17-percent improvement in material yield. The nesting engine delivers geometry, toolpath optimization and part handling and also provides faster calculation times, along with improved feedback and graphics.   

Enhancements to the software’s dimensioning system provide greater clarity when printing and presenting information. User-defined suffixes for both the primary and alternate units as well as a scale factor mean that two separate values can now be displayed.

Importing CAD models has also been updated through the support of Solidworks configurations. The software now has a interface for users to select which configuration of an assembly to import, without the need to ascertain that the last version saved in Solidworks matches the one needed.
