rotary template

Post by dhelfter » Thu Mar 29, 2018 4:29 pm

Is it possible to have the output from the rotary plugin dxf template in imperial instead of metric?
I know I can scale it in cad by 0.03937 but would be nice to output in inches.

Thanks
Dan

That should happen automatically. Is SheetCam set to use inch units?

I just ran some tests and in inch mode it is multiplying the dimensions by 25.4 instead of dividing them. I'll release an update shortly.

sorry for delay.
That would make sense, when I bring the dxf in autocad I have to scale it twice by 0.03937 to get to incjes.

Thanks
