Default Flat Pattern (dxf)Directory ?

Pioneer
Pioneer

Am wonder if there is a way to set a default flat pattern directory. I am using BIDM and by default 

my flat patterns want to save at the in process location with no respect to any folder structure.

     I have a flat pattern directory outside the Vault that has the same folder structure as the Vault.

We chose to not have flat patterns in the Vault do to the fact that we get flat pattern files (dxf)

from customers.   

 

               Or does someone have a macro for this type of thing.

Hi @Milro

 

 

You can use my SheetLaser macro which allows many methods for defining the dxf folder

           I am looking into this, it  looks like it might be my answer . I am struggling to get it set up . Do you

have an english instruction guide and does it allow UNC paths?

Hi @Milro

 

 

 

Yes it allows UNC pathes and if You look into the INI fiule, there should be English explanations too!

And You further also can use my MainDim macro which will have the SheetLaser as integrated part, but also is doing a lot more for You regarding main dimensions, properties, etc.
