Smart 3D provides export to and import from Alma act/cut nesting software. XML data for manufacturing plate parts, created with Manufacturing Plate , are exported to act/cut. In act/cut, the plate parts are nested on standard mill plate sizes, and plate remnants are maintained for future nesting. Finalized nesting XML data is then exported from act/cut and re-imported to Smart 3D. Smart 3D maintains the nesting status of the plates.
Alma act/cut (SKBY485AV-0306A or SKBY486AV-A306A) is a separately-purchasable third-party product available from Intergraph.
