Nest the Layouts of Parts or Assemblies

Automatic Nesting of Layouts

Eliminate the manual effort of segregating individual parts. True-shape nesting for flat or 3D parts and models.

Automatic nesting solution for SOLIDWORKS®

CAMWorks® Nesting is an automatic nesting module designed to nest the layouts of SOLIDWORKS parts or assemblies. It is seamlessly integrated within SOLIDWORKS and allows nesting of flat or 3D sheet metal parts or assembly models. CAMWorks Nesting uses NestLib®, one of the fastest and most featured automatic true-shape nesting library available in the industry. This module can be used to create efficient layouts of metal, wood or composite based materials, producing the maximum number of parts from a single piece of raw material within minutes.

Features and benefits

  • Easy to learn and use
  • Part-in-part nesting
  • Fully Automatic true-shape nesting solution
  • Fast Nesting and Optimal Nesting (with time constraint) options
  • Full associativity with SOLIDWORKS® - Updates are tracked, and flagged whenever a change is made to the component and are reflected instantly
  • Automatically nests multiple parts, based on the material and thickness, thus eliminating the manual efforts of segregating individual parts
  • Material optimization - Advanced nesting algorithms reduce raw material consumption by providing optimized and compact layouts
  • Improved utilization and increase in productivity


CAMWorks Nesting can be used in a variety of industries, including:

  • Aerospace
  • Wood working
  • Composites
