    Slicing a Model

    Hello all,

    I created a topography model and used SolidWorks to slice it into planes and sketches. Now I'm stuck how do I separate all the sketches? My end goal is to take these sketches and cut them on my laser so I can create a 3d topographical map.

    Thank you,

    You can export every sketch as dxf.
