Draftsman cut shop /Dynatorch questions

Postby Eelsteel » Fri Oct 02, 2015 10:09 pm

Hello,

This is all new to me. I've been handcutting my metal pieces for 13 years and finally decided to get a cnc plasma system.

I have a 4'x8' Dynatorch super B with a hypertherm 65 and arbor image draftsman cut shop software.

My question is : I'm scanning my origional drawing, vectorizing the image, scaling it to size and saving as a dxf.

Then I'm opening it in the dynatorch software and it states that it is to large and goes beyond the table limits and it doesn't show up at all on the screen.

Ive been reading the arbor image manual but I can't find anything addressing this problem. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Are you running through sheetcam to turn it into a cut file before you import it into Dynatorch? You scale it using Sheetcam as well

EDIT tab:
Select all
Edit Tab:
Uncleave selected poly lines
then optimize.

This will reduce the number of points.

Show all points first if you want to compare how many you reduced.
Hope this helps.
