auto tab software

Post by MattHowarth » Sat Mar 03, 2018 12:14 pm

Hi all,

I'm new to laser cutting but not to computer design, having been a broadcast animator for 25 years +.

Is there a way in any of the software you guys use that will automatically add tabs to stop the central islands falling out ? It sounds lazy (and is) but I don't really want to have to trawl through my quite complex designs, spotting the bits that might fall out and adding tabs.

Obviously some bits are supposed to fall out, so I was thinking a mechanism which analyses the design and highlights the islands that will fall out, the user can then deselect the ones they want to fall out, then at the click of a button, the other are tabbed automatically.

Surely, someone must have been as lazy as me?

any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
