1  Support / Problem dxf files etc... / Re: Multiple arcs -issue with tool paths on: December 08, 2017, 20:37:58 pm
Hello

Have a look here ; maybe bad Arc mode set in Mach3, or maybe bad value for Minimum Arc Length and/or Maximum Arc Radius in the post pro.

http://www.cambam.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=6066.0

By default those 2 values are set for inch users, and give sometimes error if used with mm.

Edit: I tried your CB file with my mach3 PP (that use the value given in the other post) and that works.

Hello

No, only Line objects must be converted to polylines, the plugin works with others drawing entities but it ignore the Line objects (I just forgot the Line object when I wrote the plugin ; oops)

... and, if there is a lot of Line objects in your drawing, you can use this plugin to select objects by type.  Grin

Yep, in my mind "control" = "driving" the machine, so you can use buttons on CB screen to move axis, make probing, feed hold, etc .. but yes, the plugin just send Gcode to the Arduino that is in the machine.

CamBam doesn't "control" any machines!

With the GRBL machine plugin, CB can control a GRBL machine Wink

You can rotate the view with mouse ; press and hold Alt key, then press and hold left mouse button (in the display area) and move the mouse to rotate the view.

You can also install one of the following toolbars with perspective and ISO view buttons. (and only one Wink )

http://www.atelier-des-fougeres.fr/Cambam/Aide/Plugins/View_Toolbar.html

To return to XY plane after a rotation, just press and hold Alt key then left double click in the view.

To flatten drawing objects, you can use this plugin (first convert the Line objects to polyline with CTRL + P)

I don't know if it's the goal of this drawing, but lines are not flat (have a look in perspective mode)

Hello

Isolate polyline9 on another layer because it fully overlaps with polyline27 (and hide the layer that contain the polyline 27) or create and move a copy of polyline9 it so it not overlap with 27, then use Eddy's CBubble plugin.

http://www.atelier-des-fougeres.fr/Cambam/Aide/Plugins/CBubble.html

++
David

edit: you can also move polyline9 above polyline 27 in the list (with mouse), because the plugin return the value for the topmost drawing object in the list when two or more overlaps.

Also, where is the config file for the plugin

On Windows, it is located in the Cambam system folder (menu Tools/browse system folder in Cambam)

it is called cb2cm.config

Hello

please, share your .cb file for investigation.

I got this message during Waterline Roughing path generation but it seems to refer to a shape I set as the boundary and which is on 'Layer 1'.

the message do not refers to the drawing layer, but to the machining levels #1 (Z slice)

I just have another try with more than one hidden layer, and it works OK between CB and SW ... strange  Huh

https://www.screencast.com/t/HcGOldZ9Q

What CAD soft are you using ?

The problem is the same with all exported files ?

Hum ,I never say that  Huh , or maybe I do a translation error ? ; it works with any number of hidden layers in both directions.

  Grin I do not agree ; the hidden/visible state of a layer IS a features that exist in the DXF format and MUST be used ; if not, you lose all data on hidden layers, and mostly hidden layer do not contain things that must be deleted be just things that must be hidden at a moment, depending on what you need to see. DXF is an exchange format, so ALL data must be exported including those that are on hidden layers and also the state of each layer must be preserved (hidden/visible - locked/unlocked - colors, etc)

All softs that I use and that export DXF works on this manner.

As example with the reversed workflow ; look at the picture, The DXF is exported from Solidworks and opened in Cambam and as you can see, the hidden layer that exists in SW (the red) is exported and is also an hidden layer in CB.

Strangely, Solidworks do not manage layer "lock/unlock" as AutoCAD or CB V1.0
