SigmaNEST is the leading CAD/CAM nesting system for programming CNC profile cutting machines. FabSuite and SigmaNEST share inventory information, and FabSuite sends parts (with associated plate CNC files) to SigmaNEST for nesting. The results are sent back to FabSuite and can be used for ordering, reserving inventory, and for creating remnants in inventory that can be nested onto in the future. When parts are cut in SigmaNEST, FabSuite inventory is automatically updated to remove the plate from stock and make the remnant available for nesting in both SigmaNEST and FabSuite.
