I’ve been using blender to model a variety of parts, mainly because I’m more comfortable using blender for making my .stl files for 3D printing. Recently I’ve modeled something with parts that although assembled in 3D, need to be laser cut in 2D, and I haven’t got the foggiest clue how to go from Blender --> 2D cut outs.
I’m told these formats work:
- DXF compatible with AutoCAD version 2011 or earlier
- DWG compatible with AutoCAD version 2011 or earlier
- CDR (CorelDRAW)
- AI (Adobe Illustrator)
- EPS (Adobe Illustrator)
I’m a bit skeptical of the PDF format
