Packing ModuleΒΆ

Packing (also called Nesting ) is a module for automatically taking a set of models and placing them in a build volume given a set of constraints. For example, the user may require that the models have at least 2mm of space between them. The packing service will determine the optimum location for these models in a 2D plane and return the location where each model should be placed. Other services can then use this information to generate a new model that represents each discrete model placed in the build volume and stream the model to be printed to a printer
