hmtoggle_plus1Included products


This tab of the browser shows the products included in the current shape nesting design.


Nesting Included products browser


Included Products

Shows the code and name of included products.



Shows the file from which the information is taken.



Shows the number of products included in the given shape nesting. This number may be adjusted, thus automatically increasing the number of piece instances in the current shape nesting. Bear in mind that the program saves the product content at the moment of inclusion and, if the product number is changed, product increase or decrease is included. In other words, if you have previously increased or decreased the number of instances, the addition or deduction will be made to the modified situation at the current time.




This browser window shows properties. The display depends on the selected context. The fullest list of properties is obtained if the properties of the selected piece of a specific part are requested.
