I have 10-15 objects in my svg. Is there a way to make Inscape to lay those on a canvas in the best way for further plotting? So it would rotate and reposition all objects and they won't overlap and will have as small gaps as possible between all objects. At the same time fit the canvas.

As far as I know, there is no tool or extension to do this automatically inside Inkscape.

However there is an online tool, SVGnest for this purpose. Also Deepnest.io which seems to be the standalone desktop version.
