Nesting XML Report


The Nesting XML report gets sent to the server when a nest is actually created by the RIP – just before it’s sent to the RIP engine for rendering.

The report contains references to all the jobs it contains and their precise locations on the output page/roll. Because of this granular detail, we can analyse the data and work out which parts to resend if a print run gets interrupted.
