Types of Nesting

Types of Nesting

ExactFlat Provides both Automatic Nesting and Manual Nesting. Manual nesting and export functions are provided with all versions of ExactFlat. The  ExactNest module is required for automatic nesting.
Manual Nesting   functions are available in the Marker View.  Pieces can be moved and rotated in the marker view while respecting orientation constraints applied to each piece.  Pieces can be dragged by left clicking a piece, dragging, then dropping at the desired location on the nesting surface by releasing the left mouse button.   The view can be zoomed and panned similar to other ExactFlat environments.
