Whats New: SigmaNEST X1.3

Whats New: SigmaNEST X1.3


SigmaNEST X1.3 introduces a multitude of additional innovations including:

►    New CAD Repair Geometry Import Options

►    New PDF and Image Import Modules

►    New Task Parameter Dialog Box

►    Enhanced features for punching

►    New Common Line Punch Features

►    New SigmaNEST Help Center


SigmaNEST is now available as a 64-bit program, giving SigmaNEST access to more memory on computers with a 64-bit operating system. In addition, nesting improvements now allow the HD TrueShape Plus nesting engine to operate faster and more efficient than ever and provide the best yield possible.

SigmaNEST X1.3 also contains an advanced Pre-Form Punching feature which protects parts with formed features from damage by reordering the interfering hits, designating a “crush zone” around each forming hit, and comparing it to the station diameter of nearby hits. If these zones overlap, the nearby hits are designated as pre-form punching hits, which can be reordered in Tool Sort. This update allows for greater efficiency and less wasted valuable material.

Jim Lindsey, Director and Product Manager at SigmaTEK, believes the new release will enable companies to improve efficiencies and is a significant step towards complete automation.

“Our SigmaNEST customers and partners drive our product direction. With SigmaNEST X1.3, we continue our commitment to our customers. This release covers improvements for every type of user in the areas of nesting, NC functions, user interface and help files.”
