Re: Wiggle pierce help.

Well cut a full sheet of 12mm the other day, seemed to go a bit easier on the nozzle, definitely pierces easier as I had to bring pierce time down from 1.5secs to 1 sec.
Think 1mm wiggle worked best for me on holes.

Re: Wiggle pierce help.

Tried all sorts of combinations, no cut rules, many different posts & setting with no luck then thought I will try the standard TNG and that works just as it should do, not tried cutting yet only a dry run but it looks ideal. I think there could be something in the development version that's causing...

Wiggle pierce help.

After reading another post dealing with wiggle pierce, I thought it was about time I took another look. I'm using candcnc 11J post with switch touch off, if I use no wiggle it's fine. When I use wiggle as screenshot below it touches off raises to pierce height, then down to cut height briefly turns ...

If you want to turn it back into a dxf file set up a 'no offset' cut operation on the parts then use the dxf post processor. Note that if you are using any path rules you must disable them.
Good stuff got it now! I had tried this before and failed, it might save the day sometime :mrgreen:

Re: Nesting parts on waste from inside cut.

You need to lock those parts, then you can select that inside part to cut first.

Re: Break up drawing resets all manually placed start points

Yes I have been wondering about this as well recently, the nesting software I'm using outputs a dxf file for the nest, before breaking up the sheet I set operation for holes, then operation for outer cut, then break up drawing. Like you say it takes time to go through all the outer cut leadins movin...

Re: Lead in and lead out behaviour control

Don't think there is, another one for a sharp corner is tangent, it's not that obvious really, I went a few years not realising! it runs straight onto the cut and off.

Re: Swiftcut default tools file

If you open one on your first sheetcam job files, that will load the toolset you were using when it was saved.
Then go to file/save default toolset that will restore sheetcam tools as they were before, you can also choose 'save toolset as' then load that toolset.

Job options icon on toolbar

I can't see a way of adding it to the toolbar, it would be a very usefull addition if it could be added, don't know how many times I go into it every day!
Hot keys would be the business :P

Re: Nesting mode selecting multiple parts

Left click and drag around to select parts works well for that.

Re: Offset

Sorry just looked in Mach and that option 'ignore tool change' is ticked.
Maybe its slighty different to how I described, it doesn't stop and then need input to carry on, it's just a slight pause and then carries on, it does loose time on a big job though.

Re: Offset

I always get a pause when I have 2 different tools in the one operation, that's usually my cue to hit the spacebar as must be a mismatch in chosen tool :lol: Your control is stopping to allow you to change tools. Most control software can be configured to ignore tool changes. Alternatively the post...
