Project all sketches into one sketch for laser cutting


Im using Fusion360 for laser cutter design. Some projects gets complicated, with several parts, and different thickness materials.

I would like to create a sketch for each material, and "copy" corresponding geometry from other sketches to this. And if the original sketch is modified, the copy sketch is updated.

I cant just project the geometry, as each sketch is in a different plane.

Having all geometry in a single sketch allows me for a simple DXF export to the laser cutter. Otherwise I would have to export each sketch independently, which would be a pain 😞

Any advice?

Is not possible? Or just nobody know how to do it?

If the Arrange command doesn't cut it for you then the (Paid) addin Mapboards Pro may suit. It separates thicknesses and nests. Do you CAM to the Laser inside Fusion 360?

Didnt know Mapboards, I will check it 🙂
No, I dont CAM to the laser inside Fusion... Im new, and I dont even know if that is possible! Maybe after solving the main problem I can move to CAM inside Fusion
