Did You Know
Free Benchmark

A benchmark is a free test run of Optimation software using your parts, your materials, and due dates. We'll benchmark on any of your fabrication processes - laser, turret punch, waterjet, router or knife. There is no cost for this service. With a benchmark you can compare the cost savings of our nesting solution results side by side with your current solution.

Product Module Specifications



Our approach to nesting is unique in that it is comprehensive - not only in managing the part flow through the shop, but capturing and handling the myriad of real world issues that impact a nest.

Therefore, every Optimation product (OptiLaser, OptiPunch, etc.) is comprised of several modules. Starting with the Knowledge Base, and including the CAD, order entry and machine interfaces, and centering on the nesting engine, each module works hand-in-hand with the others to automate the part programming and nesting process. Learn more about the strengths of each module.


CAD Interface

The interface with your CAD system should be a single step, single database design providing a tight integration with built in configuration management. More Detail. adobe pdf document


Automatic Part Programming

The Automatic Part Programming Module (NCExpert) is a highly integrated processor for translating CAD geometry into a ready-to-nest part program. More Detail. adobe pdf document


Knowledge Base & Part Library

The Knowledge Base and Part Library are the storehouses in which knowledge is kept. With this advanced technology you have control of the decision process with hundreds of "set and forget" parameters that the expert system uses to insure that things are done your way.

Automatic Order Entry

Optimation gives you the flexibility to order parts in the way that is best for your operation, and the automation tools to integrate seamlessly with your scheduling system. More Detail. adobe pdf document


Nesting Engine (AxiomVE)

The Nesting Module enables the software to read the Active Order File for the current demand of parts, extract the appropriate ready-to-nest parts from the Part Library's Master File and, drawing on the parameters you have established in the "Knowledge Base," create the optimal nesting pattern.

Machine Interface (DNC Interface/Display)

Our Machine Interface goes far beyond standard post processors. Integrated with the Knowledge Base, it has the ability to make intelligent decisions based on machine specifications and user requirements of the machine.
