What is the best way to export flat pattern of sheetmetal parts in SolidWorks

There is a shortcut in the Cut list to export DXF that is handy.

  1. Step 1:

    Go to the Cut list, hit the plus (+), then right click on the Flat-pattern, finally hit export DXF on the bottom if the list (see picture). You can remove what you dont want to send in the dialog with black background.. The DXF will be 1:1 ratio. Ready to sent to CNC machine.
