Would it be possible to click an area on a nested sheet and it would add an offcut contour based on a tool diameter. Maybe if it is to hard to offset complex geometry, then the offcut shape could be limited to a series of 90deg angles.
The software would then ask for a offcut name/number and save the file in a specific directory so that you know what material and thickness the offcut is.
Maybe that directory is also the default folder that the load sheet by DXF points to so you can quickly load scrap materials to nest onto.
Thanks for the suggestion. Storing an offcut is already on our development roadmap. We intend to include it when we add first class support for different materials and thickness in one NestFab project. I will let you know when that will be.
