FAQs

Why use NestFab if you already have nesting software?

That’s great – so you know all of the benefits that nesting software can offer, however, not all nesting software is created equal. Why shouldn’t you look around for something better?

We use the very latest techniques and efficient methods to make sure that our nesting software is the best in the world. We are constantly improving our software and nesting performance, to maintain our position as the market leader. NestFab uses industry standard CAD formats and can easily work alongside existing CNC, CAM or even other nesting software. Even major nesting software brands struggle to keep up with our Ultra-Performance option, which provides the world’s best nesting efficiencies.

Why not give NestFab a try and compare it against your current software? We’re certain you’ll be surprised by its ease of use and material savings. Contact us for more information.

Why use NestFab if you are manually preparing nests?

Ok – so you are dragging and rotating parts around in CAD trying to make the best nest by hand. That’s fine when the pressure’s off, but can you keep up the pace when things get busy?

NestFab is extremely easy to use – it saves time and material, reducing costly recuts from errors that can creep in when you start to lose concentration and make mistakes.

Did you know that NestFab Ultra-Performance can even beat seasoned manual nesting professionals? A recent example saw NestFab save a whole sheet on the user’s handcrafted nest and 4 sheets over the next best automatic nesting software. What’s more, it found this solution in just a couple of minutes, compared to the hour taken for the manual nest.

NestFab gets excellent results every time and takes the stress out of your nesting.

Why use NestFab if you use subcontract cutting services?

So you don’t have the right cutting machine and need to outsource some cutting. Sure, you could send your individual drawings and let them nest it for you – but how can you be sure you are not being overcharged through ineffective nesting? Easy!

Use NestFab to efficiently nest your parts before sending off fully nested DXF files to the subcontract cutting service. This shows them that you are informed about nesting and material requirements for your job and you won’t accept over inflated costs.

Our powerful automatic nesting can be used to inform decisions at the design stage. Can you fit any extra parts on the sheet if you make that design tweak? What would this do for your product unit cost?

Why use NestFab if you are a profiler or manufacturer?

Are you still using the nesting that came with your machine? Do you realise that you could be unnecessarily reducing your profitability because of slow or ineffective nesting?

You’ll be surprised at how much material, time and money you could save by using NestFab.

By mixing different customer parts on the same nest, you can save even more material, while production reports for the shop floor help to identify customer parts within each nest for easy and error-free picking.

You can also nest onto any shape of sheet – great for using up offcuts and scrap.

NestFab exports files that any other CNC system or CAM software can understand for toolpathing.

Ultra-Performance will give you the edge over your competition – it could even add to your profitability through reduced material consumption. Choose maximum material efficiency or to reduce programming through repeated nest layouts where possible.

Why use NestFab if you build/sell CNC cutting machines?

You have a fantastic cutting machine, your price point is good, your support is second to none but are you missing the final piece of the puzzle – nesting software?

We successfully work with a number of different machine builders to offer NestFab with new sales and can provide different revenue-generation opportunities to suit any business from commission based referrals through to full reseller arrangements.

    About three years ago we began looking for nesting software to maximize nesting efficiencies and help reduce our raw material costs. We worked with several software companies, trying out various demo software and even having some on-site software demonstrations. It quickly became clear that NestFab had the best user interface, the best CAD importer, and the best nesting performance. Efficient Software were the only company that would actually talk with us, listen to us, and understand our software needs. NestFab is ideal for our needs and the tool is of great value.

    Nestfab ensures that we, as a shipyard, bear the costs in hand regarding the cutting of the steel. Where we previously had to outsource the nesting of all the metal parts of a yacht which can be around 160 tons of steel, and thus lost control, we have it now again completely in our own hands. Sometimes in smaller projects, we get the cutting files in the tendering stage. So we can also use nestfab to calculate the cutting costs in advance. An affordable program that has already been repaid several times.

    We tested and compared several nesting software solutions before choosing NestFab. Some were cheaper, others were much more expensive but, in our case, NestFab was the option with the best performance. With NestFab our company has saved a lot of money from even the first day’s usage.

    Using Nestfab to automate the nesting of our sail panels prior to cutting has saved us countless hours and thousands of pounds in material wastage costs. The guys at Efficient software always listen to our suggestions and are constantly improving the functionality and efficiency of the software as a result. Nestfab has paid for itself several times over.

    We are very satisfied with the improved performance in comparison to MyNesting. We are rapidly approaching the busiest time of the year for our company and because of that we are especially happy about every sheet that we can save due to improved nesting performance.

    Our customers use NestFab along with our CNC knife machines to optimize a wide variety of materials and applications. It’s simple to use, easy to integrate, and extremely flexible. We have customers in the glass industry seeing 15-30% material savings. We have customers cutting Carbon Fiber, a very expensive material, and NestFab pays for itself in days, not months. We have sailmakers who use NestFab to turn a very time consuming task of manual nesting into one that takes only seconds. NestFab has a very clean user interface, is intuitive to operate, generates thorough nesting reports, and is constantly improving. If you spend more than one or two hours per week nesting, then NestFab is a one year ROI and a no-brainer.
