Sheetcam export cut paths at different levels

Postby jaker2 » Thu Aug 30, 2018 11:45 am

Hi there, pretty new user here and looking for a bit of advice....

working with sheetcam (only one layer) I am exporting to gcode mach 3 and seeing cut paths on different levels (see attached). I have tried to look for what settings cause this to no avail so I thought i'd come to the experts.

Any thoughts for a newb? Thanks, Brad

Do not use a 3 D view for plasma cutting. Waht you are seeing is the code trying to get the Z potion from ouch offs that are not happeneing at the time the code is loaded. Turn it up so you have the top view. Its not a SheetCAM problem its the toolpath not being able to figure out were Z is at any given time from the code.
