How to print arranged Parts for Woodworking cut sheet

I am looking for a way to print parts arranged with the arrange function to create a cutsheet.

The manufacture arrange function lets me projects me parts on a 2D surface of my material, I then would like to print that arrangement with measurements.

I think it's easier to make a drawing with arranged parts and with all dimensions then print it out.

Sorry, but I disagree:
1.) The arrange function is very quick in putting pieces on a flat sheet
2.) Having to copy, paste and then flip/turn pieces and arrange by hand is cumbersome
3.) Why do I pay for software with a functionality (arrange) when I can not use it?

Hi -

When you say you want to print the parts, do you mean to create a drawing of the arranged parts?

Thanks,

Print a drawing that shows where and how to cut the plywood to get the parts needed.

We're working on functionality now that will support the creation of a cut list from the arrangement(s). Sounds like that's what you're looking for?

Correct,

I was thinking about simply taking the arranged parts screen from the manufacturing view and allowing to create a drawing from the manufacturing view.

This way the parts remain updated with changes on the design.

At the same time I can print assembly drawings from the design (and animation).

If you do the arrangement in the main design, and not in the manufacturing model, you can do all that today.
