Box Packaging


New member
Hi All,
I am looking for any option in any of the Catia module for -
For a given part and box, what is optimum way of packaging and How many parts that can be boxed.

There is nothing in CATIA that will automatically optimize fitting parts into a box.

I believe what you're looking for is sometimes called "nesting."

I've used a software package called "RAYDAN" that optimally nested CATIA 2D profiles onto a sheet for NC cutting. Not sure if that still exists, or if it works in 3D.
