LEDAS is developing a number of Computer Aided Manufacturing projects, some of which are related to the processing of sheet materials, including sheet metal and composites. Optimal nesting of parts on sheets is very important for the efficient use of materials and lower costs, and some of our CAM clients have asked us to provide them with a nesting solution. In some earlier cases, we used high-performance third-party libraries, integrating them into customer's code and tuning them to get better results.

Recently, we have significantly expanded our expertise in this area and developed a lightweight Nesting module based on genetic algorithms and optimization methods. This toolkit works with rectangular sheets, as well as with circular and arbitrary sheets, which allows it to be used in other areas, including 3D printing. An affordable option for companies that would like to keep costs low, this code could be the best value for money for small and medium businesses.
