SVGNest Alternative?


#1

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


#2

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.

$7.50 per export?


#5

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.


#6

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.

Looks like it has gone to a pay-what-you-want model. https://deepnest.io/


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