I need to send a DXF file to a waterjet supplier so they can cut multiple pockets in foam sheets for a custom fit container. There are several items, both parts and assemblies, positioned the way I want them in an assembly file.
The image below shows very simple pockets. The profiles I need will be more complex. I need to offset the actual profile inward to make a smaller pocket so that the foam slightly grips the components.
Is there a way to project the outer perimeters of each part/assembly onto a plane and create a sketch for the DXF file? Is there another way to do this?
