    Ok , I have se but I can't seem to find a wrapper export.
    Can it be done in file/export?
    While we're at it, any chance a full tube "wrapper" export?
    Maybe with bend references?
    I agree!

    Bring the wrapper up on the screen, select "file" --> "export" --> "dxf".

    I will throw the full tube wrapper idea into the development department.

    Later,

    One slight issue with exporting a wrap as a DXF-
    It loses the length reference, therefore near impossible to build a complete program.

    Missing the vertical red lines for getting an overall length.

    The red line is 1.00 inch to the left of the black vertical line. So if it says 23.0 inches between red reference lines (2 wrappers), use 21.0 inches between the two black reference lines.

    Code name Tube Pro, the cross axis will function like a tool changer switching from a torch to an engraver (to mark bending references). Designed cut up to 18ft long tubes without any reloading.
    The chain drive carriage makes 18ft travel possible without spending a ton.
    IDK, seems like a good idea to me even tho I'm just building for my self. So much more than JUST a notcher , its a machine for reverse engineering our drawings and bendtech tube assemblies into the real world. Only thing missing is the bends but with machine made ref. marks bending doesn't get any easier.
