What version has more options for the nesting, I have only Dynamic nesting available. When I look at utube videos on nesting there is a flyout available on the nesting tab. I do Plasma cnc so more option is what I want

I don't think there are different levels of the nesting program.  Either you have it or you don't.
However, Enroute has added new features to the nesting program with progressing versions.  What version of Enroute do you have?  They added quite a bit to the nesting between 4 and 5.  (don't know about 6 still on 5.)

Well I was using subscription to Fabricator but when I click on the tab there is only dynamic nesting available , on all the videos I have seen if you click on the nesting icon there is a option for two more nesting options

It sounds like you don't have the nesting algorithm in that package.  Frankly I'm a little surprised that you even get the dynamic nesting.  I don't think I ever bother to use that tool.  If I need to do that I just drag, drop, and rotate by hand.

I'll be honest I don't actually use the nesting all that much, as I can usually achieve better yields using the make multiple copies tool and a little fiddling. (when filling the sheet with a bunch of the same items for production runs)  However it can be a time saver for nesting a bunch of unique shapes (like sign letters) that you are only going to cut once.

Well automatic nesting would be more convenient for me as  have a lot of different shapes on the table at the same time. Pain in the ass to have to rotate to fit each piece in

Here is a link to the feature list for version 5.

Try sending SAi an email asking them how much it might cost to add the nesting option to your version.  They may or may not have a number to give you.

Allan,
Glad we got you all fixed up. The Enroute Fab has the dynamic nester and the plus and pro have the full set of nesting tools. 

Best Regards,
Aaron
