I have question. there is a way how to make more Flat Pattern in one step? Example - I hava 10 sheet metal parts in folder and i need DXF files from Flat Patern. I found Batch Processing Sample to create step files or others but to create DXF files doesnt work. there is somthing like macro for this operation. I dont want cklick 1000times save as flat pattern....
This is one portion of what "Nesting software" does. I don't use DXF frequently enough to know th best answers. We still print hardcopy and program the punch or plasma manually.
@bshand Yes that is true. But you would only want to create the data at certain steps along your development workflow. And then make it only visible/accessible to certain people.
I wouldn't want this to occur at ever check-in / check out (CI/CO) point.
Only when the author feels the file is ready to be built/manufactured. I worked at acompany that had two workflows; 1) for the development cycle and 2) for production which required formal change process. Development cycle used alpha versions and released used numeric revisions.
Actually I'm not sure about dxf. Last place I worked saved pdfs at every save. I got mixed up. Doing that with dxfs makes no sense.
this is a matter of modifying the batch macro.
I think, we did this a couple of years ago and so could save every flatvpattern of any psm fike within a directory structure .
Have a look into the code, setbthe filter to psm only and change the save line to saveflat pattern.
I found this via Google, sounds like it does what you're looking for:
I tried it, it worked on a few, then crashed. Then my path finder display was messed up. I had to close SE, and restart fixed the issue. Seems like it's intended to work like what you're looking for, but might need a little work.
