That's curious, the plugin act as it should in Win 10 but behaves differently in other os.. Wink

Yes, I've same kinds of problems with my plugins that sometimes are not working on W10 but works on W7 and XP ... (example, the previous version of NumMove crash on W10 but works on 7 and XP)

Hello

Ralf, what is you OS ?

tested on Win XP and Win 7, CB 0.98 and 1.0, and I get the same result as you on both OS ...

Hello Geoff

The toolpaths are done so the tool stay IN the boundaries, and no extra toolpath will be added if the given stepover is too large to achieve the boundary width.

A good trick is to use a boundary = the workpiece contour (as you did on the example) but with a  Boundary Margin = tool radius, so the center of the tool go to the edge on the workpiece and so the whole surface is cut.

Hello Lloyd

The problem is the same for me with EN version ; if you have a look on the picture, the english text ends with "TopLeft(2" ; (this must be "TopLeft(2D): xx.xx , yy.yy ") and all other corners info are missing.

The max overall text length seems to be the same with all languages.

Can you share a DXF that is not working so we can test if the file is OK ?

Hello

Yes, it is the clearance plane value in each machining operation (MOP)

Hello

Some trick to solve the problem you show with text.

Play with the resolution value in the V-engrave plugin. (mostly, smaller values)

Change the value for the text to polyline conversion in the option (CB must be restarted) to obtain a more detailed polyline when the text is converted to polyline (manually or when a text object is used in a mop)

this change act only on the text, so if you already have converted the text to polyline/regions, it has no effect and you must redo the "explode text"

and the last chance is to use a "remove arcs" on the polylines(*) so the polyline contains only small straight segments and no arcs ; this works better with V-engrave

(*) explode the regions before, then when polyline are converted with no arcs, redo the regions (ctrl i)

Finger crossed  Grin

First I misunderstood the problem when you said "My X and Z axes are inverted" ; I thought that X axis must be renamed Z, not that it's only a sign problem ... it's Llyod that bring light in my brain with is question  Grin

2 years of plugins. (and remember that plugins are made by users, not by Andy)
http://www.cambam.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=4886.180

24 new plugins added and even more updated and enhanced. (and one that is not yet in the website ; I must do the web page and translation)

and the latest CB version is dated: V1 R16 - Build Date : 27/06/2018 (help/about)

Hello

To revert the Z, you can edit the macro in the moves and canned cycle sections of your post pro and replace:

the {$_z} by {$_zneg}

and the {$z} by {$zneg} if you use non modal syntax.

of course, the same macro exists for other axis.

14  Support / CamBam help (General usage) / Re: 3D profile back face is offset and not generating on: May 14, 2019, 22:56:22 pm
Hello

First, for using backface, use only CB 0.98 ; in CB 1.0 this function is broken.
http://www.cambam.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=7659.msg61459

Have a look on the file I attached.

The workpiece is 40mm height and is surface is at Z = 0, so for the back-face Z, you must use a value = -40

The workpiece is not centered on the flip axis (X) so the reverted toolpaths are on the other side of the X axis, it's not a bug but this is needed because on a workpiece, the reference face must stay the same. When the workpiece is flipped, the X = 0 must stay on the same face. If not, if the workpiece have not exactly the right width (Y size) and if you do X=0 on the other face, the cuts on the reverted workpiece will be offset of twice the value of the error on Y size.

If you're sure that your workpiece has the right Y size and if you want to use X=0 on the other face, the you can shift the toolpath of the second MOP by using the transformation matrix in the MOP to shift the toolpath 40mm in Y in the case of my example (Y size = 40)

The bugs you know are safer than the ones you don’t!
