Bring your nesting to the Highest level!
Nesting is the optimization and orientation of objects to save material. Take the right steps before manufacturing by using RhinoNest.

The Proper Steps Before Manufacturing

RhinoNest 4 allows for the optimization of any type of geometry with endless options for maximum reduction such as multiple panels, the use of real or rectangular shapes, priorities between objects, freedom, and more!

sample-laminate-structure-rhinonest - Ko
  • Enable slices in 3D objects

  •  Define multiple panels

  •  Position slices in the CPlane for subsequent optimization

  •  Slice surfaces, solids and/or meshes

  •  Automatically identify slices, text and/or simple trace text mode

  •  Slice surfaces solids and/or meshes

3D Cut to Laminate 3D Objects
Choose. Combine. 3D Print.

3D Cut allows you to laminate 3D objects for laser cutting or CNC machines.

Remapping feature you are placed in the 3D geometric plane and can automatically identify each piece.

Graphic Object Selection

Define copies of an object

 Find multiple priorities between objects and define the order of placement at unlimited levels.

 Freedom of rotation

 Optimization parameters with copies of a single object​

Definition of Panels

Use one panel size or multiple panel sizes


Includes a centralized panel database ideal for large production runs. RhinoNest provides an independent tool to manage panel purchasing. Control stock from the purchasing department.


Define panels by material, dimension, quantity in stock and reference.​


The fill panel option ignores the number of objects and uses as many copies as required to fill a panel


Distance between pieces parameter

Distance between pieces and panel limits parameter.

 Maximum optimization time. RhinoNest uses a heuristic algorithm to calculate various solutions before displaying the best one.

Rectangular shapes that allow us to affect the calculation using the minimum number of rectangles for each object​

The Power of Rhinoceros
RhinoNest works with Rhinoceros technology

RhinoNest is fully integrated and designed for Rhinoceros and, therefore, provides optimization in minutes without the need for importing files from other software. RhinoNest supports all geometry types, eliminating the need for conversions.​

​What Else Does RhinoNest Have to Offer?

Discover the high-performance tools inside



This allows us to select multiple objects and identify them automatically. It lists the objects and can define the starting number and a prefix. Likewise, it allows us to group the original objects and/or create a new text layer. The Identification tool classifies objects using Tags, Text or Simple Trace Fonts. Identification of objects is essential prior to nesting.


Raster to Vector


This tool allows you to convert images into curves using ten preset styles including Architecture, Curves, Maps, Soft Curves, etc.


Remap Objects


This tool orients 3D objects to the plane prior to nesting. The algorithm functions perfectly with curves, surfaces and solids. Remap Objects analyzes a solid into the largest flat plane in order to orient the object to the plane.


Importing Multiple Files


RhinoNest provides automatic multiple file import tools, and supports all file formats available in Rhino. Folders and multiple files can be manually defined. Each file is organized in a layer with the file name.


Tabs & Connect


This tool allows you to quickly divide and connect curves. In some cases you may wish to keep the pieces in the panel after slicing. Tabs can be split manually. Dynamically define where you want to add a tab and define the size.


Import and Export of HPGL Files


HPGL format, also known as PLT, is widely used for cutting and milling machines. Easily import and export HPGL files in RhinoNest. A file is created for each panel and numbered in accordance with the optimization.
