Autodesk Inventor Nesting

Efficient nesting in CAD

Autodesk Inventor Nesting

Autodesk Inventor Nesting simplifies the nesting of parts. Use the integrated solutions to compare different nesting configurations, optimize material yield and thus increase project efficiency. 

Efficient Nesting in CAD

Nesting is directly integrated into Autodesk Inventor. The nesting of components is thus associatively possible, as is a faster calculation of sheet metal components and assemblies. Find out more about the other applications, features and benefits.

Areas of Application

Inventor Nesting enables individual nesting of materials and sheet metal panels. Find out more about further possibilities in sheet metal processing. 

Optimize Cutting

Inventor Nesting enables sheet metal parts scrap to be reduced to a minimum. 

Simplify Data Exchange

Export drafts in your own layouts (DXF).  

3D Rendering

Visualize CNC cuts in 3D also for plasma, laser and water cutting. 

Product Features

Automate Nesting

Generate multiple, true-to-shape sheet metal nests and reduce scrap.

Create Cutting Paths

Create 3D models, generate cutting paths using Inventor CAM and create DXF™ files in AutoCAD and the matching milling paths.

Compare Efficiency

Use Inventor Nesting to compare each nesting analysis and evaluate the efficiency, cost and turnaround time details.


Inventor Nesting supports planning, scrap reduction and NC data generation of designs. Exiting CAD is unnecessary.  

Increase Efficiency

Increase efficiency in three ways: optimized cut planning, minimized waste and higher material yield.
