Automatically export 3D Fusion 360 Models to ExactFlat Online for 2D Flattening and Pattern Making

General Usage Instructions

The Workflow for ExactFlat Online 3D to 2D Flattening is documented in simple-to-follow video tutorials found in the online Help system. The User Interface layout also follows a sequential left-to-right path making it easy for users to determine the next step after any operation. Once users have a model in Fusion 360 the process is as follows

1. Combine faces into Pieces and then Publish the 3D Surfaces  (via the Plugin) from Fusion 360 for flattening in ExactFlat Online

2. Flatten the 3D pieces into 2D flat pattern pieces with ExactFlat Online

◦ Select the Pieces to Flatten
◦ Refine the Piece Mesh for improved accuracy
◦ Flatten the piece with a single mouse click or touch on your tablet
◦ View the resulting flat pieces and Optimize areas of high strain or sag
◦ Add seams and Notches and then arrange the pattern layout

3. Download the pattern layout and send it to your plotter and/or cutter. (subscription required)
