Export to Origin.

General Usage Instructions

Once the design is modeled suitably for cutting with Origin, in modeling mode, press the Shaper button at the top of the screen

The export panel will be presented prompting you to select a face to define an "up" facing surface. Origin will be cutting from on the body you wish to export. The add-in will automatically identify all cutting geometry facing "up", identifying the cut type necessary to produce them.

Pressing "OK" will prompt for an export file name and destination directory, the name of the selected body is pre-populated as the file name.

The file exported is a correctly scaled, named and color-coded SVG file ready to cut with Origin. Place the file on a thumb drive, or upload to "myhub" and begin cutting right away.
