What is RhinoNest?

RhinoNest is nesting software for Rhino 3D, designed to optimise and orientate objects to save material in cutting processes. RhinoNest is ideal for a range of activities including architecture, sculpture, carpentry, furniture-making, metalwork, shoes, glass cutting, marine, posters, modelling,...

RhinoNest is fully integrated with Rhino, allowing for optimisation in minutes without the need for imports from different programmes or the need for conversions as it supports all geometry types compatible with Rhinoceros 4.0 and 5.0

Main Features

1.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, freedoms, etc ...

2. 3D Cut allows us to laminate 3D objects for laser cutting or CNC machines. Remapping places us in the 3D geometric plane and automatically identifies the pieces.

3. Advanced Identification displays the pieces in accordance with different criteria. Tag, text or simple trace text identification can be used. It has several tools for creating tabs, ideal for attaching parts to material.

4. Panel-management tools, enabling panel stock to be managed by external purchasing departments.

5. High-performance vectoring of images, plans, sketches.

6. Integration with Grasshopper3D Libraries included for developers at no extra cost.

RhinoNest is fully integrated in Rhinoceros, thus allowing for optimization in minutes without the need for imports from different softwares or the need for conversions as it supports all geometry types. Designed for Rhinoceros 5.0.


Graphic Object Selection

  • Definition of copies of an object
  • Multiple priorities between objects. We can define the order of placement. Unlimited levels.
  • Freedom of rotation: Set 180º, +90º or -90º, 90º, 60º, 45º, 30º, 15º or Free.
  • Optimization parameters with copies of a single object.

Definition of Panels

  • We can define using one panel size or multiple sizes.
  • Centralized panel database. Ideal for large production runs. We provide an independent tool to managing panel purchasing. We can control stock from the purchasing department.
  • Definition of panels by material, dimensions, quantity in stock and reference.
  • Option to fill panel. This option ignores the number of objects and uses as many copies as are required to fill a panel.


  • Distance between pieces parameter.
  • Distance between pieces and panel limits parameter.
  • Maximum optimization time. RhinoNest uses a heuristic algorithm, which it uses to calculate various solutions before displaying us the best. The greater the time we define, the better the result.
  • Rectangular Shape allows us to effect the calculation using the minimum rectangle of each object.


  • Report displaying a list with the following parameters: Panel number, number of pieces per panel, used area and area free for optimization control.
  • Copies the values to the clipboard for pasting into any application.
  • Report export in text format.

Slice 3D

  • Enables slices to be made in 3D objects.
  • Possibility to define multiple panels.
  • Positions the slices in CPlane for subsequent optimization
  • It slices surfaces, solids and/or meshes.
  • Automatically identifies slices in tag, text and/or simple trace text mode.
  • Identification prefix definition option.

Integration with Grasshopper

For designers who are exploring new forms using generative algorithms, Grasshopper3D® is a graphic algorithm editor that is closely integrated with Rhinoceros modelling tools. Unlike programming tools, Grasshopper requires no programming or scripting knowledge. Nevertheless, it allows designers to create form generators ranging, from the most simple to the most impressive versions. With this integration, RhinoNest for Grasshopper includes all the tools available in RhinoNest within the Grasshopper interface. Grasshopper is a free plug-in for Rhinoceros.
