Hello! After some research I found this: https://dg-nest-pro.en.softonic.com/ It is called DG net pro and is exactly what I'm looking for: Nesting pre written Gcode files. This would solve my problem but it seems that this program is not longer supported. The thing is that I can not find another pro...

Hello Les!
Thanks for the fast replay (and sorry for my late replay).

See my question as a point of improvement then. Sheetcam is already great but this would improve the workflow for large nested sheets.

Hello!

I've been playing around with manually editing the G code and it worked great.

That is quite a nice and easy to build system. Hobbytime! ;)

When it's done I'll show some pictures, could take a month or so before I have time.

Sheetcam plasma --> use torch on for nail gun action?

Hello! We've got quite a nice order of wooden crates but we need to shoot 51.000 nails to assemble them. That takes a lot of time of course so I was thinking: Lets mount a nailgun on the cnc router z axis, move to the right position, move down, and then give a signal to fire the gun. Than, if I make...

job runtime ajust

Hello! We are using Sheetcam more and more. We get requests how long a job is gonna take. The estimate in the job report is always 30% (it varies) off. Of course that is because it is not setup for our machine speeds etc. How can I adjust these settings so the report will be as accurate as possible....

4 axis work

Hello! I would love to extend the use of my cnc router to also use a 4th axis for simple wood work like table legs with words in it or something like that. As far as I can find Sheetcam does not cover this option, am I overlooking something or is it possibly a work in progress? I love the functional...
