Hello fello solidworkers.
I have designed couple complex sheet metals, and was wondering if there is a way of having solidworks generate a optimzed cutting plan with the flatted sheet metals.
Thanks for your time and efforts in advance.
If you search for something on a permanent basis to the frequent use below some suggestions:
TruTops http://www.bettomacchine.it/images/2011/TruTops_en.pdf (from what I remember on the engine SW)http://www.solidworks.com/sw/products/details.htm?productID=29
There are other specialized softy for machinesfor example http://www.bystronic.pl/cutting_and_bending/pl/pl/products/software/bysoft/index.php
Not in Solidworks itself, but third-party "nesting" plugins are available from what I've read elsewhere on the forum.
