Solid Edge 2D Nesting
With Solid Edge 2D Nesting, generate optimized layouts for the two-dimensional cutting of fabrication materials, including sheet metal, plastic, wood, fabric and textiles. 2D Nesting saves fabricators time and money by allowing them to manage material use more effectively.
The process of 2D nesting, or the organization of 2D shapes efficiently on a single cutting plane, is much like processes dressmakers have used for decades. The optimized nesting patterns, created using a next-generation nesting algorithm, markedly reduce preparation time, waste and costs.
Powerful nesting, comprehensive control
Solid Edge 2D Nesting utilizes the most advanced and efficient nesting engine to generate best-in-class layouts optimized for two-dimensional cutting of sheet metal, wood and more. These nested cutting patterns reduce time, waste and costs when creating 2D shapes common in products.
