Adding a sheet in ShopBot Link

Postby Donald Thomson » Wed, Jun 01 2011, 8:35PM

I added a off fall sheet in to the ShopBot Link and I'm not sure the results are what they are supposed to be. I've got all my settings in the Link set to use X=0, Y=0 as the origin. As you can see in the attached photo, the sheet I added for this job didn't cut at 0,0. For some reason it cut on the other side of the sheet. This cutting operation involved a do flip operation first.

0,0 is the lower right corner of the picture.

Any ideas?

Added sheets first point is in the upper right corner (max X,max Y) and proceeds CCW when entering individual points. Rectangles are added similarly. I have not noticed any differences in how this works, actually right from the beginning. Did the nest show the parts cut in that location? Did the flip side machine correctly?

What location do you have set in the link nesting parameters for off-fall and added sheets?
