Christmas Gift

Postby cusoak » Wed Dec 27, 2017 3:26 pm

I Got a Mini Cooper car to cut out.
The file comes as a DXf file os I can open it in my Cut2d program
The problem that when they set up the parts it takes to make the car the put it all in 1 file.
It is huge 90 " by 39".
So it will have to be tiled out.
So I am looking for tutorial on how that is done.
Or some other way of breaking down the drawing by maybe selecting sections and saving them .
Then creating the toolpaths the cut parts out.
So any help would be great.
Thanks Jeff

Import into cut2d, delete all except one piece, export as DXF, repeat. You can then import each DXF piece separately.

You should be able to import the DXF and then select each individual part or group of parts and move them to a new layer. Once on the layer adjust position for cutting
