How can I get the best results possible using OpenNest? The best I’ve been able to achieve with my model (below) is 7 sheets used, but from the free trial for VCarve Pro, I know that it’s possible to get down to 5.
Many of my pieces are concave, so the convex hull takes up much more space that the original piece. But on OpenNest’s page on Food4Rhino, they show a demonstration using OpenNest on concave shapes, and they seem to get excellent results.
How can I get better results like the above picture?

I’m blown away that OpenNest exists and am very grateful to Petras Vestartas for sharing it with the community.
