Small shapes and Circles question to clarify something?

Post by AdrianH » Sun Mar 17, 2019 12:51 am

In small shapes as used for cutting rules on say Plasma If I set 100mm is that a length of cut line around the shape or, a sort of maximum diameter amount of travel i.e. from X = 20 to 120, or Y = 40 to 140.
On a circle is it the diameter or radius?
I have tried to find it in Help without success.

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

I concur. I think it might also include the leads.

It is the circumference excluding leadins.

Thanks all for the comments. Sorry it took me a while to get back I had not ignored my question but was awaiting an email, which I may not have set notifications correctly.
