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.
Cheers

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

Did it again today, loaded a saved part to a different sheet and missed adding the rules that were with the original part on the last sheet, did you have any thoughts on this Les?

Save path rules with part?

Would it be possible to have path rules saved with the the part?
The operation on the part saves but with no path rules, it would be useful.

Thanks

Thanks Dave, I didn't realise that.
The pause at end is after the torch is off, it allows the flame to go out fully before moving

I haven't tried it,,,but you would think adding a time in 'pause at end of cut' in the tool would do that ok.

Have you got the max acceleration out of your z motor as well, that might shave some off.

If it's thin material I have seen it mentioned about using same pierce height as cut height.
