    During a recent Mecsoft Webinar on a new nesting function in the new CAM 2020 for Rhino and Visual, I asked about a CAM 2020 version for Alibre. Joe said they are looking at a March release.

    Interesting change. New functions like Nesting are available only to people on current Maintenance plans. If you stop Maintenance, those functions are no longer accessible.

    Just an additional info: Nesting :)
    Open source nesting software:
    Deepnest is an open source nesting application, great for laser cutters, plasma cutters, and other CNC machines.

    I tried deepnest.io a few days ago. It's very basic. No post processor or g code. Doesn't have any record keeping. Only one sheet size per nest. Can't stop individual parts from rotating for grain direction.
    We have SigmaNest but it's very expensive. I'll have to give Mecsoft nesting a try.
