Laser cutter for dwg format

Eamonn Mccormack shared this question 2 years ago

I am working along side a steel fabricator that wants to adopt a laser cutter in his business using the fast cam product shape nesting. If I was to draw a shape in autocad and send it to the steel fabricator would the shape be 100% same dimensions as what was drawn or do we need extra software? Please let me know and email

Hi Eamonn,

FastCAM will produce code for a Drawing file, or a Nest, based on the drawings provided.

Unless you alter the drawings in FastCAM (The Drawing Package) or FastNEST (The nesting Package), you should get the correct sized shapes cut every time.
