How to draw multiple parts

Postby Mopar_Mudder » Mon Dec 17, 2012 6:39 pm

I need to have about 40 pieces cut of out 1/8" steel, all 40 are different. Need them cut out on something like water jet or laser, accuracey only needs to be in the 1/16-1/32 area. Some hole also, 1/4" is the smallest diameter, don't know if they would be cut or drilled.

I am looking for the cheapest program setting to get this done, not worried about finish at all.

The other question is can I draw all the parts on one drawing as they would all be getting cut out of a single sheet of 1/8" steel? Or do I have to submit a seperate drawing for each part?

You can do several 2D parts in one drawing.
For lowest cost use Job | Settings | Auto Specs | Lowest Cost.
