Merging Layers?
Read 406 times

So, I got my instrument panel done but when I sent it to the machine shop to get cut, they told me that there were a couple different layers with different properties as far as cutting inside or outside the lines. Not exactly sure how that happened but my question is this... Is there any way to merge all the layers into one with the same properties so it doesn't confuse the machine? I can do that in an old photo editing app I use called Paint.net. But I'm not sure how to do it in TC.

Open all your layers, then select everything you have draw by ctrl + a and then put it all i 1 layer, when you have it all selected, set the color, pen thickness, style etc etc

Just to add.  If you have any groups (either grouped or from the Library) or possibly blocks, the underlying objects will not change layers even if one moves the group onto another layer.  you can either explode the group / block, or go into group edit, before moving the objects onto the desired layer.

I only mention this as I know you talked about library items in another thread,  If you do not have any groups / blocks then this will not be a problem.

In my experience, when you create a Group or Block, move everything to Layer 0 first, then move it to the desired Layer afterwards.  This has prevented problems with Paper space (mostly) and Model space.
