Odd behaviour on first job loading

Post by Davek0974 » Thu May 09, 2019 9:44 am

Hi all,

I have an issue when starting sheet cam up, maybe 75% of the time when i open the first job, it loads up as a garbled mess as shown in the pic attached..

The parts are correct but there are two overlapping sheets and some parts are shifted or piled up in the lower left corner?

The only thing to do is shut the job and re-open it or open a different job - it only ever affects the first job opened.

Anyone else see this?

That strikes me as an odd graphics issue. When it does that try disabling then enabling one of the parts. Do the oddities go away?

I've never tried that, just done it many wierd things happen...

the material image/background disappeared
disabling and enabling different parts make things 'move' about, mostly even worse than 1st load.

That was after disabling and enabling one of the large cockerels !

OK, this is definitely a graphics issue. Are you using Windows or Linux?

Hmm, thought it might be or the forum would be buzzing ;)

I am running Windows 7 in a virtual machine (parallels) on a Mac :shock:

Is there a specific setting maybe i should be looking at?

I'd suggest trying the development version of SheetCam. It does a few things to try to work around issues like this.
