I’m setting up a stack of curves in OpenNest, but unless they are very simple it runs really slow.
I’d like to be able to make a sort of detailed bounding box, or shrink wrap the curves to strike balance between nesting efficiency and speed of the component.
As a work around for now I try to simplify the curves as much as possible, but workable curves still have too many vertices and slow down OpenNest. Is there a way to wrap a closed polygon, kind of like shrink wrapping it with control over the detail?
The problem with just simplifying the curves is that eventually they just get clipped and shrink, this won’t work for a packing algorithm like OpenNest.
**Edit: What I usually do is use as simple of a “placeholder” curve as possible and then use the transform data from OpenNest to put the complex smooth curve into the actual sheet.
