OmniCAD Nest is designed for part design and nesting together in one application. OmniCAD Nest files can be used by the Global Control or Burny® CNC control. Created by Messer, it unites OmniCAD, a powerful CAD system for part design; OmniMacro, for generating parts with parameterized macros for standard shapes; and OmniNest, a program for part nesting.

  • AutoCAD® files in DXF or DWG formats can be imported. New drawings can also be created and saved in DXF or DWG formats.
  • Specially designed CAD system for construction of cut parts.
  • Drawings can be imported from AutoCAD® (DXF, DWG, or IGES formats).
  • CAD features include zoom and construction commands, modify functions, layering, and dimensioning.

omnimacro software

  • Includes 91 standard shape macros that save time drawing standard parts such as rectangles, circles, rings, and more.
  • Macros can be inserted into existing drawings.
  • Allows setting of defaults for type of machine, material, and thickness.


  • Nesting includes automatic collision control.
  • Manual nesting and row-and-column nesting are included in base package.
  • Part placement from an optical parts list onto a defined plate by drag and drop.
  • Auto or manual definition of cut sequence.
  • Fully automatic nesting (with true shape nesting) is optional.

Additional Functions:
Import Image Files

  • Raster to vector conversion.
  • Create DXF or DWG files for common image files such as BMP, JPG, DIB, PNG, TIF, and PGM.
  • Scanned images can become cut parts.

Customized Reports

  • Reports can be created that include such data as part quantity, cut length, mark length, area, material, thickness, weight, customer name, deliver date and more.
  • Choose from several report templates or easily create your own.

OmniCAD nest is available on the MetalMaster Plus.
