SmExportOSM exports a sheet metal solid to an .osm (Open Sheet Metal) file format (native to the CADMAN-B CAM system). The .osm part is saved as mm- or inch-based, depending on the value of the document MEASUREMENT system variable. Document INSUNITS are taken into account for proper scaling.

Gives the option to export adjacent non-sheet metal parts in same .osm part
- Accuracy of the approximation: An OSM file format requires splines to be replaced by linear segments and circular arcs. The accuracy of this approximation (allowable deviation of a segment/arc from the spline) can be specified for each run of the SmExportOSM command.
- Minimal Edge Length: Controls the minimal length of edges in the .osm file.
SmExport2d - exports the unfolded representation of a sheet metal body as a 2D profile in .dxf or .dwg file format.
SmUnfold - creates an unfolded 2D or 3D representation of a sheet metal part.
