ADVANCED Robotic Technology
has released version 2.0 of its toolpathing and nesting software ToolShop.
The software enables manufacturers to schedule parts in the office and have them automatically cut in the factory.
It is a Windows-based software package that allows users to draw and import components using standard CAD tools.
The toolpathing and nesting software can be fully integrated in existing processes and manages all necessary data such as CAD drawings, parts libraries or customer data.
The toolpathing and nesting software features full remote material library on the company network that allows the entry of sheet and plate stock levels, which are automatically subtracted when a nest is created on that sheet.
Improved features include fully automatic toolpathing, auto nesting function, automatic cut order, auto lead in sizing and position, nest reports, cut time projections, remnant cut-off and full material management, excel and CSV file importing and improved true shape nesting algorithms.
