Does anyone know of any other good nesting software like Bobnest?

Very nice. THANK YOU Will!

I spoke with a guy that owns a CNC shop and he said that he had spent thousands of dollars on nesting software and just does it by eye.

With that being said, if you look at some boat kits, I have a difficult time seeing a human nest those many parts so closely.

I saw somewhere that V-Carve Pro does nesting, but I’m not sure how they’re using the term. If it’s standard nesting then that’s really good, as I am saving up to buy the program for a few other things anyway.

Correct. Noted w/ a link at the commercial software page:
