Re: the new path workflow, my first impresions

Hi Chris,
In the meantime I use the number as the diameter
me too... But for the most used diameters i have different typs. For example at 4mm i have differnt types for different materials and differnt "cutting edge" lenght. Also i have 4mm's in rectangular shape, ball-end and round-end... ;)

Re: the new path workflow, my first impresions

Since i have a tooltable stored, i need to only select the tool i wish to use. But which tool is that with the diameter 3mm... Was it tool 3 or tool xx?... ;)

It wood make it some more easy, if the tool selection will be done by a drop down menue with tool name shown.

Re: Some problems that I found

Hi,
1. Some operations cause the items in a job to duplicate. I do not have a specific scenario but it happens often.
I noticed it only on using "array from selected path", - the first path will be doubled.

Re: 2D milling a "dying species"?

Good Morning,

Lasercutting is nice, but as far as a pocket is involved, it is on its limit... And of course a Laserbeam as a diameter to, smal, but it is there and needs a dogboone.
