Item Name Description
ID The unique identifier for this part. This typically corresponds to your ERP part number. This is the identifier that will be used to order that part.
Description An optional description to describe the part.
Material The material and thickness from which this part is made off.
Constraints The constraints restricting this part potential nesting positions.
Length The length of the rectangular part.
Width The width of the rectangular part.
Initial Rotation The initial rotation mode can be either None or Manual. In manual mode the part can be rotated by a specified Initial Angle. None has the part oriented at 0 deg parallel to the X-axis.
Initial Angle Enabled when the Initial Rotation is set to Manual mode. Enter an angular value to rotate the part. This new position will become the reference position considered by the constraints.
Overall Length The overall length of the part. The maximum X value minus the minimum X value.
Overall Width The overall width of the part. The maximum Y value minus the minimum Y value.
Weight The weight of the part calculated using the material density, thickness and the part dimensions. Pertinent when working with heavy materials for safety concerns.
Area The area of the part.
Perimeter The perimeter of part. Useful to calculate the cutting time.
