Select one or more drawing objects and / or 3D surfaces as sources for the definition of stock. The extreme dimensions of the selection will be used to produce a rectangular stock. If selected objects have a non-zero height (3D objects, polylines with variation in Z, several objects at different heights) the stock height will be drawn from this height.

Select a part, multiple parts or nothing if you want a stock only for the machining folder. (Select the objects first, then the part(s) by holding down the Ctrl key)

Use the Tools/make stock from drawing object menu to create the stock. (Or one of the contextual menus in the machining folder or in a group)

If no part is selected, you can choose to generate stock for the machining folder, for the active part or cancel.

If multiple parts are selected, the same stock will be created for each of the selected parts.

Oversize XY
Generates a stock larger than the selection (all around in XY plane)

Stock surface
The Z position of the upper face of the stock.

The thickness of the stock (if no thickness info is given by a 3D object or 2D objects at different heights)

Bottom oversize
If an height info can be obtained from the selection, it will be used to set the height of the stock ; this bottom oversize value will be added at the bottom of the stock in addition to his calculated height.
