I am using the nesting command to get many different part on to one sheet as efficiently as possible. the problem i am running into is that several of the sheets have parts that are very similar, and after they are cut out it will be hard to identify which part is which. I would like to set up the machine to go through and write with a marker an identification number before the part is cut out. The problem i am running into is when I nest the writing command (either engraving or contour) with the contour command for the larger part, the writing command doesn't stay inside of the part, and is just nested on its own. any advice on how i can end up with labeled nested parts?

I assume you checking the option to Add part labels prior to nesting. Are you creating reports after nesting as this will allow you to cross reference each part with a part label. There are also some report templates that output bar code information for parts and sheets.
