This two day course will begin by introducing new users
to the SigmaNEST nesting procedures such as adding materials and costs, basic
nest settings and applying numerical control.
Users will look at importing common file formats (DXF, IGES, DWG), using SigmaNEST’s built-in CAD Editor to create and edit parts,
along with Standard Shapes to increase productivity.
As the course develops, more advanced nesting options are
explored – such as manual nesting, and nesting algorithms. Advanced NC options
will be covered to show the machining aspects of SigmaNEST showing how the user
can control the cutting order, add crop lines, and automatically create
Customers will compare the advantages of Task Sheets vs
Stock Sheets, adding NC at Part Level, and tracking parts using the Work Order
The user will leave the course with a full understanding of all areas
of the software.
NOTE: This course is not part of the Training Passport scheme.
- Participants should ideally be familiar with the basic windows operating system. Basic 2D CAD experience as well as some knowledge of sheet metal nesting and profiling will be useful but not essential.
