This class will walk through how to use NESTINGWorks, a true-shape nesting program that works seamlessly within the SOLIDWORKS interface. The course explains how to create efficient layouts of metal, wood, or composite based materials, producing the maximum number of parts from a single piece of raw material within minutes.

Learning Methodology: The best way to learn is by doing. Use 2 monitors connected to the graphics card of your computer. Have one monitor (or mobile device) playing the video and the other monitor displaying SOLIDWORKS. You can also have the video playing on a mobile device such as a tablet or smart phone if you do not have 2 monitors available. Work along with the video to complete the tasks discussed in the video. Pause, rewind, and play the video as necessary while you work along with the instructor. Repeat the process as many times as you wish.
