There's also a time saving, sometimes a huge time saving with autonesting. In some industries operators might spend an hour or so tweaking each nest to save a bit of fabric. With autonesting, this is unlikely to take more than a minute or two as a background task on a computer. If you're spending more than a few hundred a week on fabric, you ought to look at good autonesting.
To offer more advanced autonesting options to customers, Aeronaut has partnered with the UK company NestFab to develop a fully integrated multi-tasking background nesting solution. The operator selects the Autonest menu and within a few seconds, a fully nested queue appears in the Tangent window.
In many cases, good autonesting is free… or rather the cost of the software (Tangent + NestFab) is paid for with material savings and time savings compare with manual nesting… normally in well under a year. The more expensive the materials you work with, the shorter the payback.
Autonesting is fast. If your fabric comes in different roll widths, it's easy to try a test nest onto different width rolls to see which gives the least waste.
