Definition will orient sections by their bounding boxes and appropriate rotation. Uses Galapagos to optimize.<br /> <br /> Definition here: <a href="http://www.grasshopper3d.com/profiles/blogs/laser-material-optimizer?xg_source=activity">http://www.grasshopper3d.com/profiles/blogs/laser-material-optimizer?xg_source=activity</a><br /> <br /> Improvements:<br /> - Section cuts are oriented relative to one another with a cheap standard deviation technique.<br /> - Galapagos optimizer no longer allows sections to intersect.<br /> - Galapagos optimizer now coordinates y and x movement to minimize cutting area of material.
