Code example: External Nesting Extension

Updated: 13 Apr 2023

This example program and video demonstration will help you get started creating an Extension for Tekla PowerFab to establish a connection between PowerFab and your own nesting software. 

The video and example program will demonstrate how to:

  1. Enable Extensions in Tekla PowerFab
  2. Create an Extension to improve your integration with Tekla PowerFab
  3. Perform a SaveNest from your nesting software, to save your nest to PowerFab, reserve inventory and/or create a requisition to order required material.
  4. Perform a TFSCut, to process a Take From Stock in PowerFab, effectively marking the nest as cut and updating production status of the parts
