Placement (Nesting) Strategies  

Placement Strategies (also known as Nesting Strategies) determine how your jobs are arranged on the media. Depending on your needs, one Placement Strategy will probably be advantageous over another. Each strategy uses a different algorithm to provide various workflow solutions for different situations.


The primary difference between each strategy is speed vs. media waste. Although this is not always the case, printing faster will generally produce more unused media.
