Toolpath problem - Outside/Right is offset

Post by Slaney »

Hi, I am having problems when trying to use the “Outside/Right” toolpath from 2D profile option. The preview of the toolpath shows not only that the path does not follow the 6 pieces to be cut from the plywood, but that it applies a 3.5 cm offset around the combined 6 polygons. Any idea what is happening here? See attached images. If I select the “on” toolpath, it displays the anticipated paths. Any guidance is appreciated,

Thanks.

It looks like the parts are too close together for the 1/4" tool (6.35mm) to fit between them. Create toolpaths for each part separately, and you'll see how they overlap.

Thanks, I will add more space between parts and see what transpires.
