New and Enhanced Features to CAD/CAM Nesting Software



Hypertherm, a U.S. based manufacturer of plasma, fiber laser and waterjet cutting systems, has announced a version update to its ProNest advanced CAD/CAM nesting software for automated cutting. ProNest 2017 v12.1 contains numerous enhancements designed to enable customers to achieve more.

New features include:

  • Dynamic align - Allows users to create a connected column or row of rectangular parts, aligned on one side. Aligned parts can be connected with a common line or bridge, then quickly bumped together manually on the nest into dynamic align columns or rows. Dynamic align parts can also be created during automatic nesting.
  • 3-D CAD Part Bevel Detection - Identifies beveled edges on SOLIDWORKS and Inventor parts and automatically assigns ProNest beveling to them during import. Single and multi-pass beveling is supported.
  • Output for Multiple Machines - Creates NC output files for one or more additional machines at the same time as output for the current ProNest machine.

In total, this new version builds upon capability of ProNest 2017 with the addition of many new features and enhancements covering everything from common line cut sequencing to ERP integration to machine interface modules, many of which are suggestions provided by current users.

Users with an active software subscription can upgrade to this new version at no additional charge and continue to receive unlimited technical support and other benefits.

"These updates deliver ProNest users incremental technology enhancements, meaning less manual intervention and a reduced requirement for highly skilled workers involved in programming and cutting. Additionally, ProNest helps enable breakthrough SureCut technologies that can revolutionize production for our customers, including True Hole and Rapid part, which are delivered automatically without operator intervention, and True Bevel, which reduces bevel set-up time. Also with these updates, ProNest continues to expand user capabilities via integration to their smart factory, allowing fast, easy round trip communication with any MRP/ERP solution," said Derek Weston, Product Marketing Manager for Hypertherm CAD/CAM software products.
