I recently made a video on my youtube channel about creating optimized laser cutting sheets for an architectural model. The script will take Breps (buildings) and automatically nest them on a set of laser cutting sheets of a specified dimension. It also automatically labels the parts, both in 3D and on the sheet for engraving. I figured I would share the script in case anyone would like to use it. The script requires the plugin ‘OpenNest’ - shout out to Lina and Petras for developing this great plugin.
The rundown of the script is available here:
