AutoNester-T is a software package for automatic marker making on fabrics. It is widely used in the garment and upholstery manufacturing industry. It is able to nest any set of pieces within a very short time in an optimal way, minimizing wasted material, while taking into account various types of constraints. The efficiency of the markers achieved by AutoNester-T is competitive to experienced human nesters.
The AutoNester-T software is organized as a Dynamic Link Library (DLL) to be used as a developer's tool kit. Developers of CAD-systems can integrate AutoNester-T into their software.
We also offer the creation of custom-made standalone applications for the end user which can be used to create markers from special data formats.
AutoNester-T is constantly improved and more and more kinds of constraints are incorporated. Currently, the following constraints are supported:
- stripe and plaid
- pre-placed pieces
- folded and mirrored pieces
- folded markers
- nap and flip restrictions
- bundle support
- rotation adjustable
- tilt support
- splitted pieces
- dynamic halfpiece sharing
- holes and defects in the fabric
- splice marks
- goal efficiency
- time limits
- unrestricted number of pieces
For a full description of the software's capabilities please have a look into the documentation.
AutoNester-T is coded in a platform-independent way and runs under Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP/Vista and Windows 7. Other platforms are supported on request.
