Exporting pipe cutting path to a laser cutting machine

Good morning everyone,

 

At work we just got a brand new pipe laser cutting machine. We bought it from China and unfortunately I don't speak the language the manual is written in. I am trying to export notched pipe for a handrail piece from my fusion file into the machine, but am having trouble getting the copes and notches to come with the file. Any advice?

Is this a Design question "how do I make the copes and miters" or a MFG question of "how do I program my machine for this"?

@a02221079 

What file type are you exporting to for input to the machine? Is this handled by a post processor? If so, which one are you using?

Can you share a .STEP file of one Tube Body? What Diameter gauge and specification are you intending to use?
