This question already has an answer here:

I have over 500 irregular shapes with different sizes on artboard, total area of them is less than artboar's area . align/arrange all of them and control overlaps manually is not possible , are there any script to re-arrange (put each shape on free space) all these shapes inside of artboard without overlaps ? (maybe with space filling algorithm)

Edit : this picture is good sample for my need. many shapes with different size. this image

I hope I was able to answer your question.

  • +1 for helpful answer but , you used the regular shape ( box , circle , ... ) , my problem has irregular shapes with different size, in that case I should categorize them with size first and then align and distribute them with your solution. – Mironline Nov 19 '16 at 11:43
  • Since you have irregular shapes what you really want is to distribute spaces (as here) – Cai Nov 19 '16 at 12:49
  • please check the edit on my question – Mironline Nov 19 '16 at 18:21
  • Now I understand. I can't find that link that I saw before which is a tutorial how to create an illustration exactly like that but I remember he created and used it as a "pattern" effect . – M. M. Human Nov 20 '16 at 7:46

Another option could be https://svgnest.com/, an open source tool designed for CNC. It's a browser-based vector nesting tool. You can work with SVG. Check out the Git repo too here https://github.com/Jack000/SVGnest

Use Window > Align (check Show Options)
If you have a problem with irregular shapes - outline them regular shapes, then group them and align/arrange/distribute. Finally, delete regular shapes.
