Plate Nesting – SigmaNest Integration

Straight part nesting for optimisation of straight lengths is standard in the Job Preparation solution. For nesting steel plates ConstruSteel integrates with third parties specialised in plate nesting software and metal sheet nesting software. The nesting of plates is done in the ConstruSteel interface, where the integration with the steel nesting software is developed.
