AutoNester-L is a software package for automatic marker making on leather hides. For other materials than leather, we refer to our software package AutoNester-T.
AutoNester-L is widely used in the leather and car 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-L is competitive to experienced human nesters.
The AutoNester-L 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-L 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-L is constantly improved and more and more kinds of constraints are incorporated. Currently, the following constraints are supported:
- up to 16 different quality levels of the leather
- quality zones on the pieces and the surfaces
- holes in the surface
- free rotation of the 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.
