Free nesting software

Stumbled across an open source software package called “Deepnest” which will nest your cutting files nicely for you.

Free and it is a cracker.

Oh. This is awesome.

Did anyone try this one? If so what´s your experience?

The other week I was cutting like 15 similar shapes out of a piece of wood, and it was rather annoying to manually align everything (although it did work ; ). So this would help, a lot, like decreasing cutting time and less waste.

I´ve installed this software to give it a try, and it looked promising, however I read on the web that the software is more or less abandoned because the creator no longer has time to maintain it. I also found that this software uploads your data to a remote server to do the calculations. I´m not to worried about that one, but if it really gets abandoned a local copy will no longer work :frowning:
