MapBoards Pro

MapBoards Pro

Icarus Soft Landings

Operační systém:


MapBoards Pro is a utility to arrange cut layout and output both SVG and DXF for laser, CNC cutting, and aid with material management for conventional woodworking projects using Autodesk® Fusion 360™.


It will perform the following:

  • Create a component map by Arranging copies of model components on a cut layout of the specified dimensions minimizing waste. The map can Include selected components or all components in the model (the default). A quantity and grain direction can be specified on selected components. 
  • or Export a flat panel design from a created component map as a multi-layered DXF file
  • or Export a flat panel design from a created component map as an SVG file with color-coded layers in standard 96 ppi. Multiple options including Deepnest format.
  • Model can include linked components or assemblies


The context menu of the map component provides additional tasks to export a flat panel design of the created map as DXF or SVG files. There is also a Label Map task with options to customize.


*** Map Report ***  This new task will create a HTML file displayable in a browser providing mapped board images, cutlist table, materials table and options selected.  The webpage can be emailed to share and it is reactive to view display sizes from a full size desktop to a mobile device.  From the browser you can print or create a PDF and since it contains both the map images and the options used you can easily compare the effects that the options have on the resulting map.  See full description here.


*** DXF Export update *** The export now includes a Tabs option with parmeters for width, distance and height adding a DXF named layer when height is non-zero.  


The DXF file or SVG file can be adjusted for a specified kerf matching a laser cutter kerf.  


The DXF will contain 6 or more layers which include perimetercutoutslabelsinset layers for each depth as viewed from the top view and Holes with diameter and depth both partial and thru all. The SVG will include the same layer information uniquely identified with color. See detailed product description here MapBoards Pro


More enhancements are planned for this Pro version.


Note: MapBoards Pro can be found in the Create dropdown menu of the Model Workspace.

  • The best add-in and support there is
    Craig L | června 01, 2021 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    The power, intuitive and cleanliness of this add-in is one thing, but when you couple that with product support that not only replies within moments, but also implements a feature request (tabs!!) in a weekend is outstanding. I couldn't be more greatful to Icarus and his Mapboards Pro add-in. Don't question it, just buy it!

  • Magic
    Troy Ostrander | května 20, 2021 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    In step with Fusion 360's clean and easy to use UI, Mapboards delivers the magic of turning your designs into reality.  We could not use Fusion 360 without this add-in.  The developer is very responsive and updates regularly. 

  • 10/10 Don't Hesitate to Purchase
    Nicholas Terry | května 17, 2021 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Bar none, this is simply the best at what it does. It's deceptively simple, easy to use, and saves a tonne of time. The best part though is the support is completely top notch. Your hard earned money will not be wasted here. 

  • This plugin makes Fusion360 viable for us
    Jason Andersen | května 06, 2021 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Without this plugin, we might have abandoned F360. It's a great plugin, easy to use. We had a bug once generating a board map. The developer got back to us the next day with an updated version. Really happy with the performance and customer service.

  • Great plugin and customer service
    Stefan Hewitt | května 03, 2021 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    We use this plugin in our machine shop to export plywood components to DXF and it works great. The customer service from the creator was top notch too!

  • Well crafted and essential.
    Robin Debreuil | února 08, 2021 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Using this for generating laser cutting files, and it works very well. If you need this kind of capability, you will not regret getting this tool :).

  • Really powerful addition
    Daniel Van Benthem | prosince 30, 2020 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    So excited to fine tune my use of this addition. I can now use parametric modeling to creat a cabinet and then export the csv file to my cutlist plus fx software. 

    I would love to see an option for including all of the machining options. Such as shelf pins and dowels to be copied over. 


  • Powerful Tool
    Armando Torres | října 19, 2020 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    I purchase the PRO version and I love it

  • Really Great Support!!
    jimmy lu | října 14, 2020 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    I purchased this as a quick way to visually lay out a ton of cabinet panels to optimize the number of wood sheets I would need for rip cuts.  Also, I wanted to use this to create a printout for a visual checklist list of all my cabinet pieces during construction. 

    I ran into some problems at first where when executing the layout it would give me an error which was due to something wrong with the way I built some parts in Fusion360. I emailed the developer for support and got a crazy fast response with many ways I could go about fixing it on my end.  

    The next day I emailed to ask if this plug-in had a feature to include dimensions in an .svg export. Turned out he didn't have that feature but a few hours later he added it for me and sent me a new install pkg!  Amazing support I would highly recommend you getting this if it would help you! 

    ps. I got the Pro version


  • Worth it even for one project
    Alan Achtenberg | září 17, 2020 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Overall absolutely worth it. Purchased the pro version. I used it on a project to create layout and cutlist that used 6 sheets of plywood. Even saving 1 sheet of plywood is worth more than the cost of the plugin. More so than that i prefer having a detailed cut layout to make table saw work less error prone and it generally would take me alot of time(at least a couple hours) to create a layout by hand.

    Functionality wise I noticed that I seemed to have issues saving default options. Other than that seemed to work as advertised. I did not use the export features, so cant comment on that.



    There are several features i would love to see added potentially.

    1. Ability to label using fractional dimensions instead of decimal(accuracy to 1/64 in preferred).

    2. Ability to create simple drawing with bounded dimensions

    I just need a reference to look at when working in the shop, right now i am creating a drawing of each board then manually adding dimensions, unfortunately i dont see an automated way to get the outer dimensions from the labels into the drawing.

    3. Ability to more easily compare layout options to determine the best solution to use.

    For example i might prefer a bit more spacing between cuts as long as it does not cost me an entire new sheet of plywood. I ended up just redoing the map about 5 times before deciding which options to go with. 

  • Great App!
    Stijn Vdp | srpna 04, 2020 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Makes my life a lot easier for only 25 Bucks!!

  • Great
    Tom Pain | dubna 08, 2020 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Excellent software with great support from a very responsive developer. Now have no real reason to leave Fusion for CAM. 

  • Amazing!!
    Stanley Sommer | března 06, 2020 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    This works flawlessly. Was worth every penny. The developer responds to questions super fast. 

  • I bought both versions, still cheaper than anything else out there
    Michael Woodrum | ledna 06, 2020 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Another thing I figured out how to use it for, room layouts. For my shop, find the size of the area a tool uses and create a rectangle of the same size. Make your stock the size of your shop. Make the kerf the size you want your walking paths between tools. Have this plugin generate the layout and then modify offsets to find your favorite layout. The dev also links to another tool that will generate layouts from SVG files exported. Then you can quickly iterate.


    Having layout ideas generated saves time planning the first placement. I keep finding this tool to be highly needed in my workflow.

  • Definitely worth the money!
    Sergey Juravlev | prosince 16, 2019 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Thank you for this gread Fusion addition

  • Instant winner!
    Jem Freeman | prosince 14, 2019

    Solved all my immediate frustrations with nesting flat-panel components in Fusion. Great value and works well! Paid for itself within an hour.

  • Saved me a boatload of hassle and time!
    Jonathan Ramsey | září 24, 2019 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    I've done this manually in the past and it's a pain.  Had a fairly complicated model that layed out flawlessly!  Money well spent.

  • Super helpful
    Mark Schleicher | srpna 14, 2019 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    This tool is awesome. Thanks for creating this, it makes things so much easier. The dfx export is usually a nightmare and that tool makes it super easy

  • Nesting, Flat pack, Body exports to DXF, Parts labeled, HUNDREDS of hours saved so far.
    Steven Barr | července 09, 2019 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    Fantastic addition to F360! I had been using the standard version of MB, and recently upgraded. Are you looking to layout or "Nest" some cabinet parts? do you have a multi-part component assembly to layout on sheetgoods, lumber, or a sheet to layout for laser or waterjet? This is for you. 

  • A real time saver for laser cutting and CNC machining
    Kai Huxmann | května 26, 2019 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    We purchased the Pro version due its advanced exporting functionality of DXF files for solid bodies (not only dxf export of drawings as build into fusion).

    Despite some edge cases that the app has trouble handling it really is a big time saver for us .The developer is very responsive and he seems to be in active development of the app.

    Thank you and keep up the great work. 

  • The answer to my CNC router prayers
    Connor Barickman | dubna 09, 2019 Ověřené stažení (Co je to?)

    I purchased the pro version of MapBoards because I have CNC router designs with inset pockets. I am still working out the kinks in my workflow but it's dangerously close to being exactly what I need. The developer was quick to respond and address my confusion. Worth every penny.
