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.
