Retaining bars (tabs, bridge) for a workpiece

Hello, I’m currently testing zw3d in the demo version and have a question:

Suppose you want to cut a rectangle plate out of a piece of row material

Is there a (automatic) function if i don’t want to use adhesive tape or vacuum for e.g.
place a small bar (tab, bridge) on all four sides, which
connects the workpiece to the raw material after cutting and thus still has a
hold on the worktop.



This should be redeveloped.

If you add “clamps” small parts that represent the tabs and tag them as clamps in CAM it will avoid cutting these areas in all QM toolpaths.
