If you're unsure of which way round to put the value just make it much larger than you would in reality and you'll clearly see which way it's going in the 2D preview.
Exactly what I was thinking, thank you so much for your help.
One last question, is there a way to apply an edit that will save the variables and use those numbers for future nests, or do I need to edit the variables before toolpathing each job? Or do I need to toolpath, then update the variables, then recalculate?
I know I'm being a bit of a pain but I'm trying to get a good understanding of this program so I can minimize errors in cutting material before I cut it wrong.
