Design edge not following cutpath

Post by i_r_machinist » Fri Aug 04, 2017 3:16 pm

I have a new trainee and I think he changed a parameter or something because my cutter does not follow the path now.
any ideas?
thanks

Probably added one single dot outside the part and the cutter is going to that dot and then coming back.

Yep, a hard to see almost invisible line remanent with maybe an oversize kerf setting causing the cut path to wander where it thinks it needs to be.

If you want to upload that pcm file myself or someone else here could take a look at it....
You marry into the PlasmaCam family and must accept the fact your software and hardware are proprietary. It's a for better or for worse engagement with overwhelming security. PlasmaCam controls the computer, table, hardware to their advantage IMO. :x
