I largely design in sketchup and have recently moved from a free plugin (cutlist) to cutlist bridge + cutlist plus fx both commercial.
It's a lot more efficient but it does impose a lot of restrictions / changes on workflow and there are sadly numerous poor software / ergonomic / programming choices to negotiate, particularly in cutlist fx, which is a pity given its cost.
All that moaning aside ... it paid for itself inside 2 decent sized projects I reckon, largely through less sheets needed, and partly by improving workflow because I had to analyse it to minimise the impact of adapting to the software ... so there is a silver lining!
One thing it can't do is tessalate non standard shapes so optimisation goes out the window if you go beyond squares and rectangles...
I've made it sound awful when it's not it's just not polished / finished software IMO.
No doubt there are many other options if you don't use sketchup as the starting point.
