I've designed an attachment part for a notebook holder that consists of four different parts (three of them are needed twice).
All parts should be milled out of a 15mm sheet of plywood. However I've got difficulties getting all the parts oriented and laid out on the XY plane for machining. I mean, I could use the draft workbench to first make a clone and then rotate and move every part until it is in place for further processing. That however feels unnecessarily complex and tedious (especially on a more complex project). I'm thus wondering, whether there's any sort of simplification for that frequent task. Something like #1 select face to be put flat on the XY plane, #2 select (corner) point to be put on the XY plane origin, #3 specify multiplicity, rotation and translation in case multiple parts should be machined in one job.
I would greatly appreciate your help!
Thanks in advance!
