Nesting to the center of the sheet?

Postby Ayberk EKSIOGLU » Tue, Jul 24 2012, 12:03PM

I have the attached Panel List.xls. I need to fit 6 pieces: 2 by width (no problem here) and 3 by length. I use a 8mm knife. In order to fit 3 pieces by width I deselect Nest to the Edge of the Sheet. I can use a 8mm collar at max. However, both of the long sides (upper and lower 280cm sides) of MDF are damaged, about 2cm each, so I don't want to nest it to lower right, lower left, upper right or upper left. I want to nest it to center, matter of speaking. What to do?

Maybe you can choose the best corner to nest to then use a g92 to move away by however much you need to move.

Use the 'enter void' facility in CN to produce two voids along each long edge, covering the damaged area . These will not be nested on.

Thanks a lot! Now, I'm working on to find out how to do that. I couldn't learn much from Control Nesting Manual.
So on Sheet Entry I would tick Rectangular box and type (x)2800 and (y)2100 and on Void Entry I would type (x)1 and (y)1050. That didn't work.
When I type in my MDF size (280x210cm) it draws on the opposite corner (upper left) instead of where my pin-ups are located (lower right). Isn't that counterintuitive?
