Automatic Toolpath - Processing Tab

Specify specific processing parameters for part nesting, double sided parts, and labels.

Nest Options

Parts are grouped together for nesting based on the associated material type for each part. The nesting options define how the parts are placed within each sheet of material.

Nest Method Select the EnRoute nester to use to nest the parts
Angle Steps The angle increment to rotate parts by when nesting. Larger values increase the number of nesting options, but also increase nesting time
Gap* Minimum distance between nested parts
Margin* Minimum distance between nested parts and the edge of the material
Use Holes Nest parts inside the holes of other parts when checked
Nest Position Select the nesting position on the plate

* Overall part dimensions when nesting include any external toolpaths allowing nesting spacing parameters to be very small or even 0.0 to maximize material usage.

Double Sided Machining

Flip Direction The direction the material will be rotated when processing 2 sided geometry
Horizontal Trim Amount The thickness of material trimmed off the horizontal edge of the material to create an accurate registration surface for flipping the material
Vertical Trim Amount The thickness of material trimmed off the vertical edge of the material to create an accurate registration surface for flipping the material
Horizontal Edge Select the top or bottom horizontal edge to trim
Vertical Edge Select the left or right vertical edge to trim

Label

Label Design Select a label design created by the Label Designer application in EnRoute
Label Format Select a label format
Labels on Flip Side Labels will be generated for the flip side output when double sided parts are processed
