Cut Line for digital printing

Hi We print stickers. I am looking for a way to add a cutline path to the print ready exported pdf. On our system the cutline is just a path with stroke color defined by a AI color swatch named cutContour. It is the swatch name which makes the printer SW to recognize this as a cutLine. Any way i can add this line in product builder and have it exported et the end , please ? Currently i am adding it manually ... Thanks in advance

I found sort of workaround,publishing here for sake of others who might need this : 1. Created an svg with the cut path. 2. Colored this path as invisible ( no stroke,no fill ) 3. Added the SVG in the ProductBuilder exactly where i would like the cutcontour to be. Remember, this path is invisible to the user After the print export (layered pdf), open the pdf in an editor (AI in my case), find the path and change the stroke to the swatch. I made a small js script to locate the path and change the stroke. Much easier and precise than adding the path manually each time
