Re: G41/G42 CUTTER COMPENSATION

Hi
Just wondered if anyone has experience of adding cutter diameter compensation to a post processor file as our controller has a tool wear compensation table.
Thanks in anticipation

Tool diameter / finished cut size issues

Hi Just wondered if anyone else had experienced this. I have a 6mm twin flute straight straight bit which is described as 6mm diameter and when measured, does measure 6mm across the flutes.

Re: Profile toolpath issue single pass required

Hi Adrian
It was the dado creator I was most concerned about as I could work it out but now I know its a minor bug. I was looking for a quick way to convert my existing files to speed up the cutting, however I can do them manually.

Thanks for your input

Profile toolpath issue single pass required

Hi I was wondering if anyone had come across this issue and how to solve it. I want to cut dado grooves in a single pass. Unfortunately when I use the Dado gadget or if I import vectors creating the toolpath seems to create two passes shown like this <> on the 2d visual, however if I draw the line i...

Nesting problem

Hi all I'm having a problem nesting some furniture parts as when I nest the parts some of the vectors from the parts get jumbled up and the parts become unrecogniseable. I think it may be because I have various toolpaths that overlap the perimeter of the parts ie pockets etc. Is there any way to sto...
