Maximizing number of parts

Post by scottart »

I am trying to cut out a bunch of letters from a sheet of plywood and am looking for a button to push that will take all the letters and spin them around to find the most efficient use of the sheet of wood.

i have fuzzy recollection of some Aspire video that taught how to do that. do any of you have experiance with that Opitimization feature? or was I smoking too much saw dust?
