Fill in the gap of my nested item
« on: May 21, 2023, 12:45:49 AM »
So i have a program that i am using to nest shapes into a contained area ( sheet of foam ) and sometimes my nested items do not fill the full sheet. for example my foam size is 72x120 inches, if i cut a 24x72, 24x96, and then im left with a space of 48x96. im trying to make a code that will give me the best optimized items from the list below to fill in the space for little to no waste. My sizes that i can use to fill in the dead space is 24x72, 24x84, 24x96, 24x120, 30x72, 30x84, 30x96. What im hoping is a function that i can give a list of items that will be nested and it will output 2 pieces 24x96 or it would say if instead of it being 48x96 inches left over i had 54x96 it would say 1 piece 30x96 1 piece 24x96

Maybe this topic will give you some ideas to try to code for your needs...

Yes so i found one that nests and it works amazingly but im looking for something that will add parts into the nest on sizes i use usually if the sheet isnt fully used, for example i have the drawing below, its already been nested now i need to know from the sizes below, which sizes are best used to maximize the remaining spaces, 24x72, 24x84, 24x96, 24x120, 30x72, 30x84, 30x96

Free website to calculate this. I think you can use spread sheets to speed up the inputs.

Only really calculates rectangles areas I think.

I'd assume it's under lock and key on their back end server.

this is more nesting but the portion that provides remaining spaces is neat. If someone can mimic this for me and say you can add a sheet of this from your stock list and it will still work ill provide payment for the help. please message me for more details

so that wasnt me but thats for nesting what i need is before nesting i need a script that will add any additional sizes if my material has any extra space for it. so or example my sheet is 72x120, im cutting a 24x72, 30x72, 36x72, whats left is a 30x72, i need my script to say this is how much space is left add this from the list of available stock items
