    So does anyone know of any freeware where you import your DXF File and it lays out where everything will go. This way you know what the smallest piece of aluminum or wood is that you need to make all the parts at once ???

    Its amazing how well the parts can be laid out, no matter how hard you try to to 'manually' do it the algorithms always seem to do it better :)
