Pack it Up and Cut it Out

I have no idea how mathmatically efficient this is, but it saved a tremendous amount of time in labor. It is a simple packing system which determines the maximum alignment of a series of curves, positions them in a compact grid and numbers them according to area, while creating the matching numerical set on the original positions. Designed for laser cutting, it is a great time saver. It has only gone through limited testing so it should be considered highly beta.

Transform Each

It may be a very simple script, but it is a handy one to have around. The command is modeled after adobe illustrator's transform each feature and follows its namesake. This is an excellent script to compile into a plugin command.
