Wow!  Now I know why I never think of wax.  Its expensive.  Nearly as expensive as aluminum.  Atleast its reusable.

I just put a new version on the website that allow to use absolute coordinate for moving.

The center of the selected object (or the center of the selection, if multi-selection) is placed at the absolute coordinates given in the move section when absolute is checked.

The GetSelectionCenter() routine has been rewritten to solve some problems that appears with rotated polyrectangles and texts

Warning, only the plugin for CamBam V1.0 has been released (V

I hope one day David will add an absolute positioning tab to the latter

Done in the last version

I think we ran into a similar problem some time back that was related to precision for inch users. 

It might require a higher level of precision in the math to calculate the tool paths than a similar size metric mill. 

.03125 vs .75  (not exactly the same)

I also use resolution numbers that are fairly small from .1 down to .03 regularly and sometimes down to .01.

If the "walls" are almost vertical (few taper) the toolpath for a ball mill and an endmill are almost identical.

Hi Eddy,

Thanks for the thorough explanation! And JK for the lead.

I found out that the number format in the post was 0.#### as the machine would want to have it. The number format of the machining section however was 0.#######.
When modifiying the machining sections I indeed get the correct output:
13 L X-8 Y-270 R0 FMAX M3 M8

and with 6 digit in the machining section I get the wrong format again:
13 L X-8.000012 Y-270 R0 FMAX M3 M8

It would seem that the machining section overrides the post (Using CamBam 0.9.8 ).

After adding the <NumberFormat>0.0###</NumberFormat>  to the post I again get the correct results:
13 L X-8 Y-270 R0 FMAX M3 M8

Thanks a lot, thats a big time saver Wink
