Re: Rules for THC On and THC Off

Since the rules that are pending do not work well in all cases I have a simple suggestion to Les. Do two simple things like functionality without choosing the rules: The first is to analyze the contours and holes in the software and to select where the speed is not 100%, or at least 90%, and the mo...

it is in the .SheetCamTNG folder in your home folder. This is a hidden folder so you need to make sure 'show hidden files' is enabled in your file manager.
Thanks Les!

Where are toolsets stored in Linux?

Les, Can you tell me where I'll find the default storage directory for toolsets in Linux? I've got Sheetcam on my windows office machine, and Linux table machine. I use the Windows box for most of the "heavy lifting" for cut files, but occasionally need to tweak settings/layouts tableside. As such, ...

Re: Small shapes and Circles question to clarify something?

It's my understanding that it's cut distance, ie, perimeter length.

Re: Changing the tool description

It has to do with the "automatically name tool" checkbox (or whatever it's called). Uncheck that, re-load your toolsets, and I think they'll be back to "normal".

Re: Starts points placements

Sheetcam often seems to choose, IMO, the worse place to start. In the middle of corners vs an open area, etc. For one-off items, you just have to adjust the start points prior to saving the job and cutting. For repeat items, I set everything up how I want it, and save it as a part. Then, when I need...

Any way to "lock out" the error display window?

Les, is there a way to 'lock down' the error display window in Scam? This one: sc error.JPG When I have multiple layers/parts, I'll invariably run across this while moving the mouse across the screen (from the part to the toolset, changing an option, etc). When the window "pops up" from the little r...

Re: Problems with Linux command CNC after switching to new computer

The NAME of the cut rules may be the same, but the CODE in the cut rules can be different between Windows/Mach and Linux. I went from Mach to CommandCNC as well. Initially, I didn't use any rules at all, but I've slowly started adding them back in. Torch off before end, slowdowns at sharp corners, e...

Re: CommandCNC1.1

New post is 26. I believe it's included with the download files, but you have to select it as the new post in sheetcam.

ETA: Yup, 26.

Job summary difference, Windows vs Linux

I've been running Sheetcam on my plasma table for about 3 years now. I'd largely given up on the Job Report summary, as it was very inaccurate in the past when I used it (Windows). I'd never used the summary on the Linux box, since I'd lost faith in it with the Windows version. However, the other da...

Re: Drawing import tab guidelines

From what I've been able to tell, it has to do with how close nodes are in the drawing. When I have a Corel drawing with a couple of very close nodes, I get this issue. I've been trying to remove "very close" nodes in my drawings in Corel, and it seems to have fixed the issue.

Re: Cannot Drill Simple Holes... What Is Wrong?

Play with your arc/circle recognition limits in the Drawing Import tab. I forget which selection it's under, in the "Options" menu drop down. Your drawing program my be exporting as lots of small, straight lines (instead of arcs), which could be throwing sheetcam for a loop. If that's the case, you ...

Re: Anything Better Than CorelDraw For Vector Graphics?

If you're using Sheetcam and Corel, try outputting in SVG vs DXF. That made a world of difference to me. I output in SVG exclusively. Also are these files you created from scratch? Corel has a bad habit of creating duplicate lines on auto-traced files, or even some imported files (from other program...
