Hi, i know this has been an old-ish topic but i havent found a solution on the forums so far. My problem is really simple, i have shape that i want to panel. Each panel has a maximum dimension (for material limitations) and i want to find what is the most efficient rectangular panel layout. I have used packrat to pack the boxes and galapagos to control the length of each box while minimising the ‘unpacked’ area.
My issue is that i am trying it out on a simple surface now and it is roughly easy to figure out the most efficient. however using galapagos, for some reason there is extra space that i know i can extend the box but when i do it manually, packrat messes up and thinks there is no space.
Hence, my question is, i have attached the rhino and gh files i am working with, is it possible to help me figure out if i am using packrat and galapagos properly OR is there a better way to optimise packing of 2D rectangles?
