True Shape Nesting

True shape nesting is a feature that uses a more detailed nesting algorithm to fit even more objects into a specified area. Because it nests objects based on their actual shape, true shape nesting is able to pack shapes together much more closely than the standard nesting algorithm.

True shape nesting uses a more complex algorithm than standard nesting and may take considerably longer to nest a group of objects.
