The most probable common causes for this error is that the C: drive is too full to create the temp file. The user should clear off space from their C: drive and try again. (Note: just changing the location of the backup folder will not clear this. It still requires space on the C: drive during the backup process even if the final destination isn’t on the C: drive)

5. Import and process production for a SigmaNest cut list

Cutting a nest produces new inventory - remnants. Follow these steps to get this remnant information back from SigmaNest and entered into Tekla EPM's inventory. Crop and Post Nests In SigmaNest, a part is posted to define the cuts and the remnant, then the Program is Updated once cut. When Posting a Program in SigmaNest, check "Save e-Reports" to generate the report that EPM will read. To set up this report, see here. With this option checked, when the Nest posts, an HTML file is created in the eReports directory. It will be named something like T150.html. If you have not already imported
