A nesting library is a collection of functions and resources usable with a programming language. It has to be integrated into an application in order to develop an end-user software. A library cannot be directly used by an end-user.
Our Powernest nesting libraries for true shape nesting (2D) or 3D blocks are made for software developers or machine manufacturers aimied at including advanced nesting features in their applicative software. If you are investigating nesting and cutting end-user software, please visit www.almacam.com.
Powernest nesting software library is widely used in various industries such as sheet metal, packaging and printing, foam manufacturing, wood working and many other sectors where there is a need for nesting and optimization.
Our libraries work perfectly with various types of cutting technologies, such as laser, flame, plasma, water-jet cutting, milling, sawing, etc.
No, Powernest is a library that has to be integrated into a CAM or ERP software application.
If you are looking for an applicative CAD/CAM software product that includes nesting features to drive your CNC cutting machines in the field of sheet metal cutting or wood milling, please visit www.almacam.com to find a distributor in your region.
Powernest library is available either as a C DLL (Powernest Lib) or in the cloud (Powernest WS). Powernest Lib ships with a well-documented C API which can be used with any programming language. Powernest WS offers a simple REST API described here. In any case we offer integration support with direct contact with our nesting experts.
In the field of nesting “Best nesting” is a tough mathematical problem for which no feasible exact algorithms exist. However, Powernest thrives to give an optimized result in a short amount of time.
