V6 Nest Error- Part could not be nested

Postby Bob Blaney » Wed, Dec 08 2010, 6:12AM

I created a simple cabinet with ply sides, ply doors, top, two shelves (all these are 3/4 ply)and a back (1/2 ply).
When I run the nest program it nests the 3/4 ply parts fine. It displays a message that the 1/2 piece could not be nested for the back.
Consequently the cut list and the costing does not include the 1/2 inch ply sheet.
Am I missing something? Do I need a special setting? :wall:
I using the latest V6 software on Win 7 64 bit.
Thanks,
Bob Blaney

Can you post the file you're having trouble with? My suspicion is it's a wide cabinet and the sheet stock for the back is grained, hence you must rotate the grain on the back in the construction settings dialog by 90 degrees, or the sheet stock may not be set up correctly?

Josh,
I redid the cabinet and checked on the grain of the back as you suggested.
That was the problem, I had it at 90 degrees instead of 0 degrees.
Now it nests.
Thanks for the tip. :beer:
