    CSV Part Listing, Matched to DXF file for nesting automations

    Hi,

    Trying to solve a problem we have...

    We laser cut 1000s of parts on pre-nested sheets, but a lot of these sheets contain parts we don't need, so they go on the shelf to hopefully be sold at some point.

    I want to switch our method up and invest in some automated nesting software, so that we cut only what we need, but can't seem to find the right one.

    Basically want I want to be able to do is create a CSV file which has exported data from our webstore that contains the name, colour and thickness (acrylic), quantity and a path to that shapes dxf.

    Ideally then it would import into the software the DXFs and organize sheets based on the colour and thickness and then multiply the parts by the correct quantity required.

    Has anyone come across this type of program? If you have experience in this field, I'd be happy to chat about creating something or getting setup in someway on the right path..
