Used to get my suits custom made at Richman Brothers in Cleveland,
home of the "plain pipe rack" suit stores.
Back then, a standard suit was $80-$90.
A custom suit was a $10 premium over a standard suit in those days
which was a heck of a deal.
Was given a tour of the factory where several laser cut machines were
cutting out pieces for suits from bolts of cloth.
Was told the machines had been developed by Hughes Aircraft and
adapted to the "rag trades" by Hughes.
Chris, just a thought, but the free plugin for Sketchup, CutList 4.0,
is a ruby script that contains the algorithms used to produce the html
output. It can be read in any ASCII editor (i.e. Notepad). Might be
able to get some ideas or reverse-engineer the code.
Before anyone flames me for encouraging copyright violation, the
following is a quote from the script file:

Google "Cutlist 4.0" for download links.
