Re: cutter jumps at multipoint objects

Hi Andrew, maybe I found a possible hint: the suchcalled entry point is calculated independent (I respect only my examples) of choosing cutting inside or cutting outside the contour. In every case its the same coordinate. here I selected cutting inside: Screenshot_20180218_103230.png here I selected...

Hi Andrew, no problems to cut circles from QCAD. Trying to create gcode from the example appended brings many problems. The cutter jumps cutting cirles, see pictures. You can test it easyly with my appended dxf file. I tested if countour is closed using hashures, no problem, no open forms found. Cou...

Re: cutter offset path not exported in g-code

Hi Andrew,

today I tested your new cde with success.
Thanks for your help. Maybe you allow me to mention a whish: a tool to generate bridges to fix the part you cut would help me a lot.
Are there any plans to introduce it or something simular?

Best Regards,
Christof

Hi Andrew, thanks for your offer. I have two ideas to succeed. For both I need the programmers help. The G-Code I need concerns the comand to set the tool table: G10 L1 Px Ry, where x is the Integer# of the tool (variable [T] stands for uppercase t plus the tool integer number, so not usable here) a...

Re: cutter offset path not exported in g-code

Hi Andrew, many thanks for your quick reply. You are right supposing I'm using LinuxCNC. With your hint I could see that (I suppose) the generated g-code is missing an important command, see this info from LinuxCNC (http://linuxcnc.org/docs/2.5/html/gcode/tool_compensation.html): "Cutter compensatio...

Hi all, I just tried QCADCAM the first time. I creatred a simple square size 30mm and tried to generate g-code. The cutter size is 2mm. Independant of my chose to cut inside/outside/on the line I get the same G-Code as result. I'm doing somthing wrong, but I can't see it. The generated path has the ...
