    Anyone know how? I can't really figure out a good way of doing it to keep my parts attached to the stock. It's an automatic feature in the inventor version of HSMExpress which seems weird. Cheers!

    Im not sure if you found this information or not but it's kind of tedious work to get tabs in HSMExpress for SolidWorks but in the youtube video attached it shows how to do it. You need to create a sketch that is segmented for a tool path. The portion of the sketch that is segmented will be the tab length and use your cut depth to define the height of the tab.
