cutting problem

Postby acourtjester » Fri Nov 20, 2015 4:54 pm

HI
I was asked about a problem that I have no idea what the answer is and an asking for help here.
I supplied a guy with many DXF files and he said when they tried to cut them on a torchmate system it cut the lines twice.
Since I use SheetCam and Mach 3 I am lost as to what is going on. :oops: :shock:
Thanks Tom

Hard to say without having the files to look at, but he may be using the torchmate program to create his toolpaths and then exporting the entire program out to torchmate cad to cut. If he does this without deleting the original drawing (which leaves only the toolpath to export) he may be cutting both the original drawing and then cutting the toolpath.

This may be his issue.

Thanks for the reply I will send this on to the guy.
The file has been used by myself and other many times I used sheetcam for the cut routine.

Just had this same problem, found this thread then found another possible answer. This worked for me anyway. When you export the dxf theres a filter option on the screen that pops up. Make sure "tool paths only" is checked.
