Customizable user interface
Create user groups by role or access level for greater security and fewer chances of mistakes.
Multiple people can connect simultaneously to applications from different client computers.
Menu tree and ribbon control
Customize your dashboard, tree, and ribbon menus to quickly access favorite functions and frequently used tools.
Inspect part data after translation. Use the same viewport to review, inspect, and measure nested results.
Work with data filtered by a specific facility, machine, or both.
Automatic data syncs
Automatic data syncing and updates better support concurrent access of applications by multiple users.
Server monitoring and data synching are now in real time, between the master and client databases.
Server data syncs
Better data syncs between server and clients mean that people using enterprise solutions will now experience significantly improved response times.
Translate part data from many sources
TruNest uses the SmarTran universal translator, which ensures that all part geometries are suitable for nesting.
Automatic part assembly
Interpret metadata in the original CAD file including part name, assembly name, and material designation.
Reverse engineer legacy data
TruNest translates CAD formats and converts NC (numerical control) code from legacy programs into usable CAD data.
Product data management integration
Manually select parts for translation or pull them automatically from a PDM system such as Vault software.
Order entry and scheduling
Add parts or assemblies to an active order until nesting time, and increase nesting efficiency
ERP/MRP system integration
Integrates with ERP and MRP systems to automatically schedule new orders and nest them, based on workload.
Barcode input and output
TruNest supports QR code scanning, and lets you generate barcodes for tracking purposes.
PNG file support
Generate PNG files to quickly visualize nests and parts or to use in custom reports.
Etching and labeling
Use pen markers, sticky labels, or etched part information for labeling directly on each part.
Automatic common line cutting
TruNest automatically recognizes the common line between parts, and removes unnecessary cutting motions.
Head-down logic for pierce reduction
TruNest optimizes the starting cut positions, so you use the minimum number of pierces on each nest.
Skeleton cutting/auto destruct cycle
Use skeleton cutting and auto destruct to increase machine safety, easily unload parts, and more.
Optimized saw/waterjet cutting logic
TruNest supports automatic tooling and cut sequence generation for saw/waterjet combination machines.
TruNest now supports linear nesting of bar stock, extrusions, and rods
Automatically hold each part in place during cutting, using small pieces of materials called tabs.
Multiple machine setup
TruNest selects the best machine for the job, based on cutting time and current machine workload.
There are several new postprocessors to support additional machine types.
Explore enhanced features for plasma, punch, combination plasma/oxy, and combined punch/laser cutters.
