Jetcam has launched version 19.08 of its Expert CAD/CAM and nesting software featuring several major new features, interface enhancements across the platform and several new and updated postprocessors.

Improvements and configuration options have been added to Jetcam’s Right Angle Shear (RAS) logic, resulting in higher-quality parts when repositions are required. RAS sorting buffer logic has been added to allow parts to be unloaded in a predefined sorting bin list. The exit direction of special tools (such as forming tools) can now be specified to prevent collisions. Automatic Turret Nesting (which prevents the creation of nests with more tools than the capacity of the turret) has been enhanced in addition to various improvements to High Performance Nesting. The new interface benefits from dozens of tweaks, including a new main menu which now features recently opened components and nests as well as improved nest searching capabilities.

Version 19.08 is available for free download from jetcam.com for all customers with a current maintenance contract.
