Tiling toolpaths

Postby Chris Corcoran » Tue Feb 13, 2018 1:50 am

I have a large design requiring tiling feature. Original design and toolpaths ran fine in small scale models, when I increased job size and switched on tiling to create 4 2'x2' tiles. Toolpaths for each tile ran fine in simulation, transfer files to UCCNC for machining, toolpaths no longer match simulated toolpaths. Incorrect size and toolpaths wandering around and in some cases run off machine bed it seems. It was mentioned about creating multiple files of original design, then deleting 3 sections of pie piece and run just 1 tile. Do this until all 4 are cut. I do not seem to have the nack to set this up properly. Thanks for you help in advance!!

If it ran OK in the simulation then the problem more than likely lies with the machine or the machine control software, are you using the correct Post Processor? It helps the experts on the forum if you can include your vectric file (copyright permitting) or if you can post the gcode there are those on the forum who read gcode who can help.
I have just done a few jobs using tiling & UCCNC without any problems what so ever buy only tiled in one direction. :lol: :lol:

Will double check post processor, and see if I can download file to be seen here. Thanks
