Re: Drill Points

Good stuff, it's a very useful feature I use it most days at some stage, I try and do a cut first then let it move to do the peck while the post flow is still running, if that's not possible I have a key on the keyboard set to 'torch fire' I just give that a very quick fire as it's on the move to st...

Re: Making use of usable material after plasma cutting

Are you entering sheet size into 'job options' and laying out parts on the sheet? that way you can save the sheet as a 'job file' and then zero up on x & y layout new parts in the gaps,disable original parts and cut away. I label up sheets of various sizes with job file number ie: 6OC12 (6mm October...

Re: True shape nesting

I'd be thinking just the same as mancavedweller as well, I've tried a few of the nesting packages and still find I can do a better job manually with sheetcam.

It would be better still if it was possible to edit operations in nesting mode :P

Re: Cannot add "new part" to sheet

You are probably well sorted by now, but just in case.
Try the quick load plugin as well for setting up new parts, it's a good timesaver!

Re: Path rules bug ???

I knew you would be on top of the game Kieth with thc on/off tricks, UCCNC sounds interesting don't think I have heard of that to be honest, must have a read up. I must say I have found at times something not quite right with the corners rule, like you say the angles trigger doesn't seem just right,...

Re: Path rules bug ???

Hi Kieth, If you set feed rate to say 99.8% for rule you can see where it's being applied. It looks ok on mine. Just as an experiment I ran you file with my post and tried it on the machine, just a dry cut, doesn't half pause where thc turns on/off, did you ever try S10/11 for thc on/off? you probab...

Re: Tool additions

One way I have been trying recently is saving a separate toolset for each material, doing that then saves each set of path rules for the material.
It's not a bad method and fairly quick to load up, don't really use overburn to be honest.

Re: Q regarding lead-in spacing from other cuts

The easy way with discs is to just rotate one way or the other using < > keys
You can alter rotation in nesting mode/right click/grid options.
Don't forget you can also type in angle and x, y co ords in little boxes bottom right of screen.

Once you have the drawing loaded, set up a simple 'no offset' cut on it then use the dxf post processor to export it as a cleaned up dxf.
That's another new one to me, nice one! I'll be trying that trick.

Re: Edit operation while in nesting mode

That would be great if you could Les, I'm sure there would be a good few others happy as well if it's possible.

Many thanks.
