MapBoards is a utility to arrange cut layout and a lite version of DXF output for laser, CNC cutting, and 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
- Create a flat panel sketch from the cut layout (optional)
- Export the sketch as a multi-layered DXF file (optional) - This is a lite version for simple cutouts. MapBoards Pro has full support of Export to DXF for menu command and the context menu of the map component in Browser.
The sketch and DXF file will be adjusted for the specified kerf of the laser cutter.
If you are creating flat panel designs exclusively then the Pro version is a better choice with the superior sketch and DXF output. The Pro version will have future enhancements.
Note: MapBoards can be found in the Create dropdown menu of the Model Workspace.
