Optimizing a simple grid

I’ve got what seems like one of the most simple use cases for optimization but I’m not having much luck.

I’m cutting very thin polycarbonate film into squares. I’d really like to get the laser moving the whole length of the grid with each move, so there are no direction changes within the grid that’ll cause burned edges and slow down the process.

Is this an automatic optimization setting or do I need to manually order the grid rows and columns?

You could use layers organised into rows then colums?

How about this? I made this and I think it did what you’re looking for:Lines.lbrn (19.7 KB)



Sorry for the late reply. I finally had a chance to get back to this. The critical part was constructing it as a pattern of lines (like your version) rather than replicating a square. I couldn’t find any grouping, joining, or optimization options that would do what I wanted when starting from a square.
