Hypertherm has announced releases of its TurboNest® and NestMaster® nesting software for conventional plasma and oxyfuel applications. A 2-D CAD editor has been added for creating or editing a detailed CAD drawing. In addition, the part list pane has been redesigned for greater flexibility and control over parts from the main software window, and a DXF output has been added as standard.
New TurboNest enhancements include improved material grade and gauge functionality to differentiate beyond material type and thickness; customized material naming; improved interior cut sequencing for faster processing and shorter traverse motions; consolidation of rectangular and true-shape nesting into a single automatic nesting module; and a pattern array module to help maximize plate usage.
