    Alphacam Automation: csv list to nested sheets.

    Hi Guys,

    We are using Alphacam 2020 including automation manager. I would like to automate our process where by we only route nested sheets with square panels.

    Process in Alphacam I would be:

    - Input csv file with number of sheets & length & width & thickness & ordernumber
    - automatically generate squares & cutout paths (using parametric sketches)
    - nest these squares incl toolpaths into sheets database
    - output all to default post processor
    - generate reports and labels for the sheets

    I think this should be possible with automation manager and parametric sketches but I cannot find where to start of how to link automation manager to parametric sketches function.

    Thanks in advance!
    Alan

    Yes we could do that too, but want to use Alphacam to take away the custom part. Custom applications only if all else fails.
