Description

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 steps.

  • Arrange copies of model components on a cut layout of the specified dimensions minimizing waste
  • Include selected components or all components in the model (the default)
  • Create a flat panel sketch from the cut layout (optional)
  • Export the sketch as a multi-layered DXF file (optional)
  • Export created a map as multi-layers SVG file via context menu

 

The sketch, DXF file, or SVG file will be adjusted for the specified kerf of the laser cutter.   

 

The DXF will contain 4 or more layers which include perimeter, cutouts, labels, and an inset layer for each depth as viewed from the top view.  The SVG will include the same layer information uniquely identified with color.  

 

More enhancements are planned for this Pro version.

 

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

  • Super helpful

    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.

    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 | May 26, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    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 | April 09, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    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.
