Flipping things around
The layout option buttons allow you to control the orientation of the item within the box and also change the orientation of the cardboard sheet. Some layout combinations will result in smaller offcuts than others, making better use of the cardboard.

In the diagrams below, the layout shown bottom right is the most economical as it uses the entire width of the sheet with minimal offcut waste.
