True Shape Nesting
solution for developers only -
AnyShape Cut 2D X
is an Automation component - within a dll - used for generating
good nesting layouts for two dimensional sheets and parts. The full
geometry of parts and stock pieces is taken into account. Pieces can be
represented as polygons or as circles.
Cut 2D X can be used for
cutting and nesting rectangular sheets made of glass, wood, metal, or
any other material used by industrial applications.
Cut 2D X can load complex
shapes such as those generated by AutoCAD.
Cut 2D X
is based on COM technology and
can be used
within any programming enviroment such as
Visual Basic 6, VB .NET, VC++ .NET, VC#, MFC &
VC++6, Java etc.
First you can test the capabilities of the library from the end user software: Next Nesting Software X
After that if you want to integrate the library in your program please send us an email with
details about you and your true shape nesting application at email@example.com
- Takes into account the full
geometry of shapes - Currently can handle parts and stock pieces
that can be represented as polygons (convex and concave) and circles.
- Geometry with arcs and
lines - Each edge of the polygon can be either straight segment or
- Autocad DXF support -
the following entities can be loaded: LINE, ARC, POLYLINE, VERTEX,
- Handle faulty materials
- holes (which must be avoided) can be specified in both parts and stock
pieces. Holes can have the same geometry as the large pieces (polygons
with arcs or full circles).
- Trim Margins - useful
for handling faulty materials whose margin must be trimmed.
- Independent measurement
metric - The way in which you introduce the data is a general one.
You don't have to specify a metric. Just choose a metric in your mind
and enter all data using that metric only.
- Adjustable cutting blade
thickness - For glass cutting with diamond the cutting blade width
is 0, but for wood, metal handling you need a saw blade with a greater
- Priority - The order in
which parts and stocks are cut can be controlled from the code.
- Any size - the size of
the pieces is limited by the size of the double data types
induced by the
- Statistics related to the
current optimization - At the end of the optimisation process you
will have access to the many statistics about nesting: number of
utilized parts and stock, the placement of the utilized pieces, used
- Can be embedded within any
language that supports COM Automation and dynamic link library (dll)
- Visual Basic (VB), Delphi, C++Builder, VC++, VC#, VC++ with MFC, Java,
- Full featured examples of
utilization - The AnyShape Cut 2D X package contains examples for
Borland C++Builder, Borland Delphi, Microsoft Visual Basic 6 and 2005
.NET, Visual C++ 2005 .NET etc.
