Help!!! Nesting and cut optimization in Solidworks 2018


New member
Hello Friends

Im using Solidworks 2018 and i have CNC. When i design a cabinet i need for Solidworks to optimize cuts for me. Basiclly i need that it optimizes how the CNC cuts a certain panel and that it usess less material. I think the right word for this is nesting.

How do you guys do it? (ifanyone can share a video it would be great:))
I read that CAMworks is great for this. Did anyone tried it?
What do you guys reccomend that i should do?

Thank you and have a great weekend:) Thank you for your replies:9
