Dxf for plasma

Hi guys, Iโ€™m just wondering if anyone has used the spline to ployline add on . And if so how successful has it been for you?ย 

I have a plasma table and some of my designs it wonโ€™t read due to splines. Is it worth trying the add on or just doing it an other way via qcad or something like that?ย 

Many thanksย 

Sheet metal

Hi guys , I want to create this object in sheet metal. But I want it in half through the corners. Itโ€™s to wrap around some sq wooden post . Iโ€™m not sure how to leave each end mitred so when they push together they are a nice fit .

Any advice?ย 

Many thanksย 

Nest

Hi has anybody tried the new nest feature in the manufacture workspace ? I canโ€™t seem to make it work for me. I use arrange tool but I was curious to see if nest will be viable option for me down the line.ย 
ย I canโ€™t seem to find the option for sheet size.ย  So when I try to nest it always says not enough space on packaging or something like this???ย 

Does anyone have experience with nest?ย
