View Full Version : Problem How to Set layers in sheetcam? (plasma drilling)

03-17-2011, 04:57 PM
Hello guys... I have some parts that must be center drilled with the plasma cutter.... and am pretty new to this... I might be in the wrong part of the forum for this.. but here it goes!

Part is a rectangle with (8) holes drilled in it....

What i have done:
Created my part as .dxf.... Holes and all...
Imported drawing into sheetcam....
Have everything set to cut... but instead of cutting the holes... I set up operation for Drill and use Plasma as my tool... Set my smallest size hole smaller than my actual drawing size.. and larger on the large one... but It is trying to cut my holes & drill them..... I do know know how to (de)select the inner (8) holes!???... I was told you can do the holes as a layer and the outer cut as one layer... but have no clue as to how to do this.... I used emachine shop to make the part... about the size of my hand....

Any and all help would be great!... Thanks guys, Winegar
