export script for contour curves


New member
Hi I'm doing curve>contour from object, on my model, and then exporting those curves as .ai's and either cnc'ing or cutting by hand the layers, for cheap 3d printing.

white foam, cement dust
250x250x100 cm

but its beyond tedious to export every group of curves, and I want to find a script that can do it based on the z location or the group name

the second step would be another script to position groups of curves onto a cutting sheet, with editable dimensions, to take best use of the space. maybe even in illustrator script plugin..
