Shape Packing

Here's a totally awesome GIMP plugin I discovered fortuitously over the weekend, "pack sprites", which is included with excellent "GREYC's Magic for Image Computing" (G'MIC) framework.

Forum announcement with lots of examples (it was called "pack shapes" at first)

New filter 'Patterns / Pack shape'

G'MIC homepage:

I'm using it to create semi-random lightening hole patterns for a laser-cut dulcimer fretboard I'm designing.
