AutoNester-T is a software package for automatic marker making on fabrics, sheet metal, wood or other materials. 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.
