View Full Version : Need Help! Problems cutting open paths

07-06-2015, 04:30 AM
I'm having an issue when trying to cut open paths
Firstly, I am using Sheetcam for my drawings. Some of my designs require folding, so I have been drawing lines where the fold will go.
When I open the drawing in sheetcam, in either DXF or SVG format, the drawing opens fine. All the details are there.
When I run a new plasma operation, only some of the open paths are are highlighted to be cut.
I have played around with offsetting open paths and leadin on open paths, but nothing seems to make a difference.
This is turning my hair grey (or greyer).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Maybe there are duplicate lines on top of one another?? Can you post a dxf problem file?

It opened fine for me. The fold lines were showing to be cut with no offset and contour with outside offset. I am assuming it was a "metric" job. I attached the job file from Sheetcam.

Thanks Mike.

I downloaded the trial version of sheetcam onto a different computer and the file opens fine there. All paths are highlighted to cut. I'll do a fresh install of the the full version on my work computer and see how that goes.

I appreciate your time.
