  • PLUS 1D - Optional Module - Miter Parts (Parts with Inclined cuts)

Miter Parts - A 1 dimensional part having slant cut on one or both edges. To nest such parts PLUS 1D has an optional Add on Module called 'Miter Parts'. This is a very simple module to understand and use. You simply add required part with its dimensions like Base Length, Left and Right Angle, Height and quantity. After adding parts do setting and optimize the job, you will get nested output. See the sample layout below for  nested miter parts. It giving you total detail info to cut miter parts.

  • PLUS 1D - Optional Module - Large Parts with Joints - Optimize parts when they are larger than stocks

  • Optimize parts with multiple joints 

PLUS 1D have an Optional Add-on Module Large Parts. A part having length greater that stock length is called Large Part. Splitting of Large Parts can be done in PLUS 1D both automatically and manually. During splitting of these parts it follows the standard Splicing norms. Some Splicing norms are constant for particulars type of Large Parts and some can be changed. Take for example a flange. A part of type flange, with length L can be split anywhere between the range L/5 (Minimum Joint Position) to L/3 (Maximum Joint Position). The range decreases if the minimum joint position is less than minimum split piece length by rule. In this case, the range will be between Minimum split piece length to L/3 (max joint position). Only one joint per part is allowed in case of a flange or a web part.

Bar Nesting Software - PLUS 1D : Large Parts with Joints (Add On Module)

Eg. : If A part of 6000mm is to be split then by rule (L/3 and L/5), splitting range is 1200mm to 2000mm. But if user specifies 1300mm as minimum split piece length then splitting range changes from 1300mm to 2000mm.

  • PLUS 1D estimates your material requirements 

PLUS 1D always goes for the best solution. If you want estimation of required material for some job then simply add regular stock into stock page with some higher no of quantity, then add parts required to cut then do the required setting and optimize the job. Within few second it will give the no of stock required with best utilization of it.

  • PLUS 1D tries to utilize offcuts first

During the nesting of parts PLUS 1D first uses the offcuts while trying to get maximum utilization then it uses prime stock. In this way the remaining material gets used and both material and money are saved.
