One way you can make the most of your waterjet is by learning how to maximize the number of parts or items you can cut from whatever material you happen to be working with. The technical term for this is nesting.
Nesting software ranges from simple to highly technical. Although each nesting software package does basically the same thing – fitting various shaped parts to a sheet of material – all packages go about it in different ways.
The best thing to do is to first learn how your particular waterjet works. Then consider the kind of the work you do. Here are some questions to ask yourself about your projects:
- are they straightforward or complex?
- do they require many separate parts?
- how much time/money could I save from using software?
You also need to know that nesting software is very specialized. As a result, it tends to be expensive and can range anywhere from $1,000 to $30,000.
