I have a fixture assigned to g56, and that fixture engraves 9 individual plates at a time. Each with a unique design.

Currently, to create toolpaths I import whatever 9 designs into the same folder (dxf). I then open my cam program (vetric cut2d), and import using one of their tools which atomatically spaces the dxf's out with the correct spacing according to my fixture. Each dxf file has the same size rectangle around the design to allow this behavior. I then select the appropriate geometry, create a toolpath, then export.

Is there a better way I could be doing this? It seems like I should be able to generate gcode for each file individually and somehow combine them into a single file with offset instructions. I simply don't know what to search however. Can someone give me a lead?

Thanks in advance for whatever insight you may be able to give!
