Loops on corners with path rules

Just noticed this one this morning, I sometimes need to add a little slowdown at the cross over of the lead in to get the part to drop out when cutting 12mm on my machine, the rules are great for this. However I noticed adding loops on corners seems to stop the 50% reduced feedrate rule from running...

I have noticed the slowdowns in cut rules don't seem to be accounted for in the job report, but someone the other day pointed out to me in simulation mode the seconds timer that gives accurate run time, speeded up to 5000% or so it works great.

That's a new trick I learned there, cheers for that, that will help a lot. If they are locked, picking off parts from the parts list works well. Many thanks. If you have a lot of parts and only want to cut a few, drag-select to select all parts then hold the <ctrl> key and select the parts you want ...

Thanks Les, they would be separate part drawings. That's the way I have been doing it disable parts, all or part and duplicates, that does the trick. I was wondering if there was another way though, maybe not, the ideal way, not sure if it would be possible is if you could select parts with nest too...

Thanks Steve, I will look into that, thought I was getting closer to finding most of the features in sheetcam, but that's one I haven't tried yet.

Post processor selection

Is it possible to just run the processor on just selected parts?
It would be really handy if that was possible, I quite often just like to run a row across the sheet or just certain parts.
I am doing it by disabling parts, it quite time consuming though.
Thanks

Yes I had that happening to me as well Dave but using the 11D post, I gave up and went back to my original MP3000-DTHCII-DCC+scriber6 post, thought it was just something I was doing wrong so I left it alone.

Corel File

Hi Les,
That's great getting the corner chamfering problem sorted.

Just tried a quick file from Corel R11 dxf and so far looks good, but other dxf formats from corel seem to freeze and lock up sheetcam on mine, TNG loads them fine though.

Thanks

Do you create a bunch of tools and save as a template? Load that template prior to starting a job?
It's only a screenshot from the tools table editor.
It's just made up from adding tools using that numbering order.

Umm maybe pushing it a bit there with burning a 5mm hole in in 6mm sheet, I quite often cut a 9mm dia in 8mm thick and open up to 10mm though, just using dormer hss bits, maybe that's how I get though a few consumables :lol: Try plasmatech.co.uk , not genuine hypertherm but seem to last just as well...

Hi Miro, I dunno I would rather sharpen the odd drill bit than start from scratch centre punching and working up to a 10mm hole, I normally plasma 1mm under finished size and open up with drill for more precise jobs, right speed a decent bit and some cutting lube and it's not much bother really.

No problem, I see what you mean. On a side note to that, I have had 'use default toolset ticked' does that apply to rules as well? If that's the case that explains why some older jobs can't find there rules after I renamed them all :D I've since gone back to saving toolset with job option. Cheers Sean
