Software Release Notice

AccuNest is available as AccuNest Professional Edition, with one nesting engine, AccuNest Expert Edition, featuring three engines, two for nesting and an additional one for packing or AccuNest Optipack, featuring one packing engine. The recommended configuration for optimal performance would be to install AccuNest on a standalone computer. Install Job Submission on the AccuMark workstations and network them to the nesting computer.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS These procedures describe how to install AccuNest Professional Edition, AccuNest Expert Edition, Nester Update for V8.3 and AccuNest Optipack. This task consists of loading the software, attaching the security key(s) and selecting the appropriate license file.

AccuMark Version 8.3 (or higher)

AccuMark Explorer (or UltraQueue) for submitting Markers to AccuNest

Windows XP or Vista (with current service packs)

1.2 GHz or faster computer for optimum results

512 MB RAM minimum

Overview

AccuNest can be used to automate your marker making needs to make:

Sample markers

Pre-production markers

Regular production markers (including Tubular, Bookfold, and Sectional)

Markers with line matching information

NOTE: Point Matching and Negative Offsets are not supported

AccuNest has 2 modes:

DRAFT (where it tries to make the marker only 1 time)

FULL (where you tell it how long to spend per marker or per piece)

AccuNest can be run overnight and over the weekend to perform your marker making jobs:

Use it to supplement your marker making during peak periods

Use it for markers that it consistently nests well. You will find out what types of markers these are after running your tests

Use it to cover absenteeism, sickness, holidays, personal leaves

Use it to fill “dead” system time, such as during lunch hours when no one is working

Use it to create a second or third shift, and even to perform weekend or holiday marker making

Use it as the “Best of the Best.” Give AccuNest the same markers you give to your production marker makers. Then select the best markers made by your operators and the best markers made by AccuNest. The combination of the best manual and best AccuNest Professional Edition markers will increase your yardage savings and improve your profits

Send previously made markers through packing to improve the utilization.

Preparing the station and test data: Select a station that has: • A 3.0 GHz

Preparing the station and test data:

Select a station that has:

A 3.0 GHz (or faster) computer with 2GB of memory for optimum results

AccuMark (or networked AccuMark) 8.3, AccuMark Explorer (or UltraQueue) installed

Windows XP or Vista installed

A CD-ROM drive

Verify your piece placement rules are set so that AccuNest will make markers with the restrictions you would normally place on manual marking. Check your LAY LIMITS. If the lay limits allow an operator to tilt, flip, or rotate pieces, AccuNest will tilt, flip, or rotate your pieces and will produce markers that may not be acceptable to you.

AccuNest does what you allow it to do. If your lay limits editor is incorrect, the markers will be incorrect.

Known Limitations

AccuNest Engine 1 doesn't nest marker with major piece Overlapping constructs are not supported for AccuNest Engine AccuNest Expert Edition 8.3.0 and AccuNest Optipack 8.3.0 are not supported on Windows Vista.

UltraQueue Information

UltraQueue is the software for the AccuMark PC that is used to submit markers from one or more workstations to AccuNest. Marker names are submitted to a queue file (.UMQ). UltraQueue will read the marker name and location from the queue file, retrieve the marker from storage, Nest it and then store the resulting marker to disk. UltraQueue will run in either a non-networked or networked environment. For non-networked environments all data has to be located on the station where the UltraQueue and nesting software is installed. This station must also have AccuMark software installed.

Non-networked

In a non-network environment, only one PC is involved. All software --marking system, UltraQueue and AccuNest is on the same PC.

Networked

1.) A network involves two or more computers. 2.) In a networked environment we follow the client/server concept. 3.) The client station is the PC that submits the markers. The server station is the PC that does the nest processing. You may install UltraQueue on any client that may need to submit markers to the queue and has access to the marker storage areas on the network. You would do a Job Submission Installation. You may install UltraQueue on the AccuNest station, too.

Note: Both client and server stations must have marker storage areas mapped to the same drive letter.

UltraQueue BASICS

a) In UltraQueue, the queue is a list of markers waiting to be nested. The user continually adds marker names to the list using the UltraQueue Jobs menu.

b) UltraQueue allows multiple queues, but only one queue at a time can be CURRENT queue.

c) The CURRENT queue is displayed in the title bar of UltraQueue.

d) Opening a new queue closes the current one.

e) If you change the UltraQueue file you are using (for example, from your local station to a server location), YOU MUST EXIT and restart the program. Otherwise they will continue to look at the previous queue file.

f) Service is on a first-come first-serve basis and newest arrivals always go to the end of the list, but they can be re-ordered using the Priority labels of High (H), Low (L) and the default of Normal in UltraQueue/Edit menu.

g) The next free server for that type of job handles the first marker in the list (unless another job has a higher priority)
