MakerCAM Nesting

Has anyone gotten nesting on makercam to work? I can’t seem to figure it out.

What do you mean by nesting? Like putting one part inside another?

I assume he means taking many parts and laying them out to cut with the least waste.


Somehow I never even noticed that option existed. Thanks for pointing it out!

This thread was moderately informative:

I was able to get it to put all the parts inside of a sheet of plywood sized shape, but the interior pockets all got moved around which is no good

I couldn’t even get that to work. How’d you do it?

I believe that I selected the outside shape then clicked Nesting -> Set Selected as Stock or something similar (I’m not at the computer) then I selected the other parts and did Nesting -> Begin Nesting
