Whenever I finish a design, I go through and copy and paste the faces of each part into a separate area, select them all and use an extension to export them as a dxf. Everything in my model is cut out of plywood on a 3-axis CNC router, so I’m only interested in the 2d faces of the individual components.
Is there a method using SketchUp that would be less sloppy? Like, if I go back and change my original design I have to copy and paste the 2d faces again, which adds time and increases the chances I’ll make some stupid mistake. Is there some way that I can set these up so they dynamically update if I modify the original parts?
Here’s an example of a project I’m working on:
