I designed a small PCB (25mm x 25mm). I want to mill a dozen. It would be much faster and easier if I could do them all at once. Is it possible to clone a design? Basically convert my single PCB into a batch of a dozen. Therfore, I could mill the traces of all boards in one pass and the same for holes and cutouts.

In same case I do such actions: 1- clone PCBCAM-350 by using "Panel" options. 2- export panel to gerber and mill data. 3- create new design end reimport to it data from step2 4 -

sorry, some mistake - in step 2 export gerber and drill data. Step 4 - import drill and gerber from step 3 to new FlatCAM project. Step 5 - add mill trace according you PCB-router parameters
