Directions… who needs ’em right? If you’re like me you have probably attempt to assemble just about anything by sparing yourself the burden of reading instructions – with varying levels of success. While bicycles, office furniture, and gas grills are one thing, software is a completely different animal.
Novice programmers might be tempted to learn from a more experienced co-worker. On the surface this might appear to be a quick and cost-effective solution; but those learning are subject to the instructor’s availability, effectiveness, and technical limitations. (After all one can’t teach what one doesn’t know.)
While SigmaNEST is user-friendly and easy-to-use, structured hands-on classes from a SigmaTEK training professional is always the best option. This ensures that all functionality is understood and fully leveraged to get the most out of your machine and software purchase.
With training facilities in both Cincinnati and Seattle, SigmaTEK offers a variety of training options. We can even conduct on-site training at your facility.

A growing workload at Idaho Steel exposed a number of costly fabrication-related issues:
- Parts were missed or not cut at all
- Incorrect quantities were often cut
- Processed parts didn’t always fit
- Parts were being cut from the wrong material
- CAD models were being reworked on the shop floor
“I cannot overstate the impact and value of SigmaNEST training”
While attending SigmaNEST software training company representatives learned of the software’s advanced features and ability to automate many processes. “We gained a fresh perspective on our entire manufacturing process,” said Project Engineer, Aaron Lewer. “From design through production we quickly identified key areas to automate. This allowed us to streamline processes and more fully leverage the capabilities of our equipment while relying on SigmaNEST to drive production. I cannot overstate the impact and value of SigmaNEST software training.”
From Weeks to Minutes
Today the company is achieving new levels of fabrication efficiency and speed. Thanks largely to SigmaNEST, a process that once took three weeks is now completed in minutes. “We’ve been leveraging SigmaNEST as the foundation of our new process with great success,” explained Lewer. “CAD geometry import, part information (material, thickness), and production information (Work Order number, Quantity) are now part of an automated solution. We plan on adding training for employees and continued improvement as we implement further process changes.”
