Thanks for making this remark.
This is something that we haven’t looked into yet. I’ll ask the development team if they can do something.

When deducting a not complete sheet of nested items to save the offcut. The offcut size has got all of the area where the items are place removed but it also removes a section around the original perimeter of the sheet.
We use sheets that are 2440 x 1220 in optinest with a panel trim cut of 5mm. If we nest on a single piece and save the offcut the overal size of the offcut is now 2430×1210. If we do it again it reduces down to 2420×1200 etc etc. We are finding ourselves manually then going in to edit the DXFs back to the full original size of the sheet.
I understand that the celarance is also taken off for the tool diameter on the nest, but if the overal perimeter is not touched by the tool I cant see a way to not get the deducted offcut to reduce in overall size.
Is this an option somewhere?
