Sheet Metal parts to AutoCAD

Question asked by Marc Sorensen on Mar 1, 2007

All of our laser cutting suppliers require individual AutoCAD filesfor each part being cut, to use with their nesting software. To generate these, I've been inserting the flat layout eachcomponent into a drawing (at a 1:1 scale) and then saving it as a.dwg.

Is there an easier way to do this?  And is there a way tocreate a macro that would be able to identify all the sheet metalcomponents in an assembly and cycle through the method for eachcomponent?

Thanks,
Marc
