CAD CAM Nesting


MetaCAM logo

CAD CAM nesting software consists of a feature-packed nesting engine that has dedicated nesting algorithms for Punch, Cut and Combination machines and is designed to provide maximum material yield based on your available demand.

Punch Nesting

Profile Nesting

Combination Nesting

Nesting Solutions To Meet Todays Demands

Powerful nesting with flexible options for manual, interactive and automatic nesting. With built-in sequencing and not to mention our latest nesting algorithm FLUX NEST, we have the software to help drive material and machine optimisation.

CAD File Nesting

Batch import supported files or nest with your existing MetaCAM Part Files.


Dedicated options depending on the machine, process and style being used.

Punch Options

Optimal turret options to help improve part placement.

Manual Nesting

Basic sheet layout through to Drag and Drop placement.

Interactive Nesting

Fully editable nests with a suite of options for manipulating parts.

Automatic Nesting

Fully automatic nesting with settings for priority and gaps.


Store default sequencing styles, select pre-defined styles with full manual edit.

Remnant and Slice

Destruct sheet, slicing sheet and storing remnants all supported.

MetaCAM supports the mainstream CAD Files Like

DXF, DWG, ACIS, Autodesk Inventor, CATIA, Creo-Pro/E, I-deas, IFC, IGES, JT, MetaCAM 2D, NX-Unigraphics, Parasolid, PRC, Rhino3D, SolidEdge, SolidWorks, STEP, STEP/XML, VDA-FS and VRML.

Which can be converted for nesting.

dxf, iges , psm and pdg can be brought straight into a nest job.

Yes you have full control over the reports from displaying the 3D with 2D unfold and dimensioning along with customising the layout with additional information / graphics.

We support Rectangular, Trueshape, Common Line, Punch Shear and Accurate algorithms.

Yes! You can export your 2D Flat Patterns in dxf format.

MetaCAD is a relatively easy to learn software as it follows the same logic in the rest of the Meta* modules it also contains built in help files that can be accessed dynamically.

Yes, contact our sales team for more information.

Yes! Once you have made nests these can be batch exported including reports and nc code.
