Maximizing cuts


Does anybody know of any software (Even better... FREEware) that will compute and show the best cuts to maximize use of a sheet of plywood? Even better would be the ability to input a custom size board from which I would make multiple pieces.
Thanks much
Jimmy

This software has a sheet layout tool http://www.onlinetoolreviews.com/reviews/basicfurnituredesign.htm
Not freeware, and there may be better sheet layout software elsewhere but this provides a guide as to how to maximize your sheet cutting for less waste. (it's an aussie product) Note the last screenshot in the right column.
