Hypertherm’s 10.1 update for its TurboNest and NestMaster CAD/CAM nesting programs is said to enable increased cut quality and productivity for metal fabrication and cutting applications. The update includes several added features and enhancements, and is available to all TurboNest and NestMaster subscribers through the company’s website.
The entry-level NestMaster program now supports Unicode fonts for CAD drawings that contain text. In addition, the program enables multiple drawings to be open simultaneously in 2D CAD.
Meanwhile, the intermediate TurboNest program now supports native AutoCAD fonts (SHX) and Windows system fonts, including TrueType, OpenType and PostScript for CAD drawings that contain text. TurboNest also features an enhanced 2D CAD cleanup program for quick changes to CAD drawings before they are added to a part list.
