General features

The OEM Nesting libraries are geometric software libraries used to solve 2D nesting problems, by optimizing the space management when positioning rectangular or True Shape pieces. These libraries can be integrated by external software by running the code as hidden.


This software is fully developed by Tpa and can execute important nesting functions, such as:

  • shape clusters;

  • placement of pieces in empty holes within other pieces;

  • management of the sheet inventory (quantity, colours, size, grain, priority, etc.);

  • the possibility to nest inside irregular shaped areas;

  • possibility to exclude areas from nesting calculation;

  • possibility to choose the rotation degree for each piece (0 to 360 degrees) and to carry out a mirror placement;

  • DXF native import.

Tpa also offers the client who uses OEM Nesting libraries a demo software to test its performance and help the developer in the debugging process.

Square version

code SW2.4.01

The Square version of the OEM Nesting libraries can manage rectangular shapes with a minimum rotation degree of 0-90. However, it is possible to nest irregular shapes that will be placed considering the minimum bounding box.

Trueshape version

code SW2.4.02

The True Shape version can manage the nesting of any shape inside any shape and has all the features and functionalities of our libraries.
