SVGNest Alternative?


I love SVG nest, but it neverrrrr works for me. Does anyone have another thing similar?


Unfortunately, I had the same problem. Never ever works. I just pack manually. If I get it fairly dense I just figure worrying about the waste isn’t worth the time. There’s definitely a “good enough” point that can be measured in time and money you might save by packing it a tiny bit tighter.

EDIT: Tiled clones and arrange tools in Inkscape ftw.


OMG. look what I found! Sooo much faster.


$7.50 per export?


Seems like it’s setup for large scale commercial operations more than one-off hobbyists. You’re not likely to save $7.50 on a single job. But if you’re making that thing a hundred times then saving an extra qtr piece of material would add up.


Right, but there’s an enterprise for $150/mo. Almost like the $7.50 is to try it out. The pricing doesn’t seem hobbyist friendly.


Fusion 360’s Slicer CAM output module (the functionality previously packaged in 123DMake) does a decent job of packing.


Oh wow! didnt see the 7.50!! Nevermind then! :stuck_out_tongue:


Looks like it has gone to a pay-what-you-want model.

Deepnest (SVG nesting) is now pay what you want!


The slider for choosing a purchase price is amazing haha.
