Dear forum members,
We have a few customers who use ZW3D for sheet metal products only.
One of them has used Solid Edge in the past and was used to a one button command that unfolds the product, creates a silhouette contour from it and exports it as dxf file for sending to the laser cutting machine.
ZW3D needs 3 separate commands to do this: Unfold, silhouette with internal loops checked (wireframe) and finally export the result to dxf.
ZW3D support has tried to write an API script for it, but did not succeed.
R&D is fully involved in 2022 development and will only invest time in such a function/API program when it is paying off in terms of sales.
Therefore I would like to launch a survey on the forum, if there would be a broad demand for such a function.
