FabriCAM Software Manual Placement VS Auto Nesting (Part 11) Step by Step Video Tutorial

fabricam auto nesting manual placement

Now when it comes to the placement of shapes on the sheet we have two main ways to go about it, Manual Placement and Auto Nesting.

They both have a good time when to use them, but one thing to keep in mind when using them together is that the order in which you use them is quite important.

This video is part of a Mini-Series.
Next video covers ReNesting and Manual.

Mm. Uh, hey, guys, In today's video, we're going to be looking at the difference between manual placement of shapes versus the nasty. But before that, let's have a quick intro first, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za z. We make sure that easy to watch the problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Otherwise, we're back into the programme here now, Like I mentioned today, we're gonna be looking at the difference between placing manual or um, nesting items. And what's the main benefit of them both? Now, you might think that perhaps one is better than other, but this all entirely depend on the workflow and outcome you're looking for. So, for instance, if you're running against the clock and you wanna get done, get things done fast. You might want to use the nesting because you can set up quite nice to automatically throw all your shapes and that cutting sheet and so forth. But if you're looking for something a little bit more custom, let's say perhaps you wanna have a uh, you say you want to use your actual sheet that you're cutting out of as Well, then you wanna go manual placement? So let's say you have a word cut out of the sheet, then, um and you don't want to use the actual stencils that came out, but the actual play yourself, then you want to use something like manual, and another scenario will be perhaps you want to save a lot of space where the next thing can save your space. But the manual, obviously you can manually place and turn shapes the way you like it. Now there's obviously a debate about which one can save you the most space. I kind of like the idea of going nesting for those scenarios and then afterwards manually try, see if I can make things work a bit better. But, yeah, let's just quickly run through the to just so you can have a quick, uh, view of them both. So I'm just gonna add some flat parts. I'm gonna make a circle for the manual 200 size, and then it's important here. If you're doing manual that you want to go manual quantity and not the quantity nesting. So let's go. This one about five, and then we say ad. We see you've got a shape, you on the left and then we can simply go add part. And then you can choose where you want these parts. So, like I said, if you wanna arrange them in a certain way, it's also good you can do that, where with the nesting, you won't be able to do something like this easily. And then, uh, next thing we've got is the next thing. So let's just add some more parts and make them nest enabled. I'm just gonna make some squares. So let's go 200 by 200 and then I'm gonna add maybe just four. So, like I mentioned now, it is important that we use the quantity nesting feature instead of the manual quantity we're gonna add. And then we've got these now, but you will notice with them selected, we cannot actually add the parts manually. So now we want to go to our nesting tool. It's a start, and you can say now it gives us the option to add them to the actual canvas, and you can adjust them. So this is a quick way to quickly set up. And then, like I said, if you can see it does a good spacing, put them all in and depending on your shapes, or try to rearrange it. So just a quick recap. So this one is not better than the other one. It's more for the desired outcome, so nesting is quick. And if you're going for bulk type things, it's also very handy. Where, manual, If you're looking for more custom, then it's a good way to go. But yeah, otherwise that is it on the manual, um, adding or placement versus the next thing. If we head here to softwaretraining.co.za z, you guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and you can also isolate your search on the top of right. If you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking forward to simply go. Yeah, request the training video, uh, filling the uniform, and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys for watching and cheers
