What is squaring allowance?

For Length Nesting, this is the amount of material taken off each end of the ‘cut from’ material if squaring cuts are required.  For Plate Nesting, this is the amount of material taken from each of the four sides of the ‘cut from’ material.

What is rotate allowed?

For Plate Nesting, this determines if a ‘to cut’ piece can be rotated 90 degrees for better material utilization.  For materials such as grating with bearing bars or materials where a grain direction must be maintained, you would not allow rotate and consistently keep the grain (or bearing bar) in either the width or length direction.
