I am new to SurfCam. I have worked some 2-D tutorial problems but none of them address my primary need, which is milling many of the same part out of a plate of material. The layout pattern isn't a simple repeat; the parts are arranged in whatever pattern minimizes wasted material, and some parts may have slightly different features than others. Does anyone have a relevant example file I could look at, or would anyone be willing to look at one of my part layouts and send me a rudimentary sufcam file? Thanks.
