Book matching in the nest program

Postby Nick Sollecito » Tue, Jan 21 2014, 10:58AM

I am trying to find a way to manipulate parts in a nest so I can book match the grain. Doors drawer faces etc. Is there a way to do this?
Thanks!
Nick

Nick,

You can use the Group Parts feature in the cabinet/assembly editor (Right-Click and select Group Parts ) to grain match slab doors and drawer fronts that have matching grain angles. This will keep them together in the nest. Of course, the grouped parts must fit on your sheet size or else it will give you a couldn't nest message for them. Hope this helps.
Regards,
