Arrangement and Nesting of Objects within the SAi FlexiPRINT RTUV 22 Software (Part 12)

flexiprint nesting objects

When it comes to Arranging objects and shapes within the page, there are few tools as useful with that as the Nesting feature.

The great part about the Nesting feature is that it will save you a lot of time on item placement and arrangement.

All right, guys, In today's video, we're gonna be looking at the nesting feature found within the flexi print. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. co dot Z A. We make sure and easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Now, if I had to hit in the programme here. So now when it comes to the nesting feature, this is a excellent feature, in my opinion. So let's say you've got a design, but you wanna kind of fit it all nicely onto maybe a vinyl or something to cut. Then, um, or whatever it is, then you're gonna find it quite handy that you can actually, um, nested as tight as you can to save material and so forth. So now what we can do is, um, select our shapes. Now, keep in mind, it's only gonna net the objects selected. So if you only wanna nest certain things you're gonna select, yeah, you only have to select that, but I'm gonna select everything. So what we've got here is we've got some basic shapes, and then we've got text and, uh nice big capital letters. So what I'm gonna do is select all of this. Then you wanna go to our arrange menu on our main menu on top and then on the drop down menu you wanna go all the way to we find nest. Now, if I click that, it will open up our nesting option here on the right and a preview on our left. So now there's a few different options. The first one is we can, um, only nest certain colours we want. I'm just gonna leave this one on all So all colours, then We've got the panel height and width. So let's say your materials a certain size, you can try and fit it within that. So you just set it here, then you know, OK, cool. I am at least within it. Then every year we've got the actual spacing between objects. So if you had to look on the left here, if the adjusters lower, objects will come closer and I'll try and fit them more in and adjust them accordingly, then under that, we've got the amount of rotations that can happen. So I'm just gonna, um quickly let's switch this 1 to 0. Now you can see all our shapes will be exactly the way they are on here. Just nest it. So this tri a rectangle a blue one will be the same layout and so forth. So with all the letters you can see, they're all standing up straight. None of them rot it now, but DeVol, this is on 90. I like it because that means they can do it within all those amounts. So if you can find a better nesting in a different angle, it will do it for you. This obviously won't work too well. If you have, like, design that has to stay consistent. But if you have a lot of different parts and then, um, the nesting is very handy, then we also have the option here, Break apart. Now, what this does is it allows you to break shapes that is either grouped together or like text. So if I had to deselect this, you can see now our nest has to be put together because it is one shape or it's grouped together as text. So if you, uh, wanna keep words together like that, you can do that. Otherwise you just say break apart and it will try to find it will fit all of those things in together. And then you can obviously just adjust the spacing between it. So if you wanna have a nice, tight little N, then you can do that. So play around. So you see, as you can see here, we've got a nice, tight fit here. But if I make my spacing even lower, then suddenly the shape has to jump out, which now we are, in essence depending on how you use the material, wasting some material. So just find the right spot by fine tuning it. But yeah, otherwise, that is our nesting. Like it's a very handy little tool. Definitely play with it. Like most other tools, the more confident you get with it. Uh, the better your workflow will become in the meanwhile there. If we head you to softwaretraining.co.za. co dot Z A. 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 or right.
