    Are you talking about a "nesting boat" or steel plate piece nesting, i.e. the job of laying out pieces on a standard size plate to minimize wastage. "Cut sheet metal"? Look in any sheet metal shop scrap bin...or are you looking for developed shape layout examples?

    For what it is worth, both those are skills that should be learned by the naval architecture student, though there are now programs that will do those things for you.

    It pays to use some time to play Tetris. :) And I am not 100% joking.

    @ufling: Not the best nesting tool that italian software, looks as if there is a lot of waste

    I guess a hand nested would have saved you 1 plate :)

    But these are just my 2 cents.

    You can use these people, its a free download and service, but if you want the nested files you pay for them. Just upload all your parts in DXF or DWG format quantity and they do the rest.
