Here when I select this option to 'create setups from manufacturing model' it defaults operation types of all the setups to 'cutting'. Would it be possible for me to change that default operation type? When I try to edit all of them one time, it doesn't allow me to change the operation type. 

Also, would it be possible to set the default 'origin' as well rather than me having to go through each individual setup?

Hmm...I don't think this is possible, but I've not tried to do so. 

I don't have a Nest study handy to play around with, do you have one you could share?

Yes I do, here is a file containing a nest study for some tables.

I think we've done something recently to base the operation off of the active tab, as we had done for creating individual setups. I'm not sure if that's hit the street yet. It may be coming in the next update.

I just tried that and it worked! It selects the operation type depending on the active tab. I was in the fabrication tab because that's where the nesting button is lol. Thank you.

Any takes on setting the default origin? @jeff.pek @seth.madore

Glad that worked.

 

What are you wanting to set the default origin to?

I would want to be able to set it to a selected corner (the far left top corner) of the stock for all sheets. Like this.nateglg_0-1652994182385.png

Currently, it defaults to this the bottom of that corner

This is something that we are working on. There is some debate on how much control to give over this, but when creating setups from these sheets, I think it definitely makes sense to be able to set the WCS origin based on the sheet.

Okay, thank you. Good to know that it is in the air. I'll work around it for now by manually selecting the origin point for each sheet.
