I have a list of stuff that needs to be fixed. This should have been on the list but wasn't. I have now added it to the list. I am slowly working through the list as I get time but I'm not sure when I'll get to this one.
Thanks Les! Appreciate your communication and feedback.

Re: .part not saving path rule selections with part

Have you tried the 'copy all' to copy the operations? It even works copying from another job file. Yes, but I save .part files for parts I cut regularly. Ideally, I'd just open the .part file, place it on the sheet, and the sheet is ready to cut. That's the whole point of a .part, IMO. Each of thes...

Re: .part not saving path rule selections with part

Dang. That's disappointing. Having to add rules back into 4 to 6 layers per part takes a bunch of time. It would be infinitely more convenient if the path rule just stayed with the part. I guess I don't understand how saving path rules with a part is significantly different than saving it with a job...

Options, Job Options, Material - make sure the origin matches the one you have in Options, Machine Options, Working Envelope.

Re: Little holes in my work

Stray points in the drawing, small loops in the lines, areas where the kerf is larger than the gap in the drawing, so the torch has to skip over and punch a small hole, etc. Without an image of the drawing in CAD and Sheetcam, it's hard to tell.

.part not saving path rule selections with part

I'm running Sheetcam Windows 6.1.53, post CandCNCPlasmaLLCNC-rev27C. I've noticed that I'm not saving my selected path rules with my .part files. When I re-open a .part file, the rules are all available. However, instead of each layer having the correct rule applied, "none" is selected. I then have ...

Re: Some feature requests for optimizing workflow

Keep in mind, saving the .part saves the parts exactly as it's set up at that time. If you change your tool numbers, or your rules, etc, you'll need to address that when you re-open the part. I've changed my cut rule names, and Sheetcam is spazzing out trying to open old .part files with cut rule na...

Re: Some feature requests for optimizing workflow

Would it be possible to have the overcut as a part of the tool, vs the jet cutting window? That way the overcut amount would be tied to the material thickness. I use small .06 overcut on 14/16ga (w/ torch off before end code), but this goes up to .1 overcut with .125 material. Occasionally I overloo...

Re: Variable THC feed speeds?

What system are you running? I'm not aware of any system where Sheetcam controls the THC parameters, other than turning it on/off in the code.

Most systems using sheetcam have the THC controls in another area, not Sheetcam.

Re: Issue importing Sheetcam Windows job file to Sheetcam Linux

Will do. When I run the post on the Windows version, and send that to the Linux box, CommandCNC does fine with it (that's how I cut it). Opening the .job file in Sheetcam caused the issues.

Re: Issue importing Sheetcam Windows job file to Sheetcam Linux

Hello I have posted before about the same problem with importing curves into the Linux version of SheetCam. I believe this has to do with the SVG support and the conversion of arbitrary (Bezier) curves to a series of circular arcs. My work around is to create a job file in Windows and then reopen i...
