Skewed Nesting

Postby Philip Shantz » Thu, Feb 01 2007, 3:24PM

This one's new to me -- some pieces are nesting at an angle, material's the same as the box (maple ply, same image, with grain) and they nest like this:

That piece shows correctly in the cab editor as 4\" wide by 28 11/16\" long...any ideas?

Check your grain direction for the part, you can rotate the grain direction throught 360 degrees which is usefull to change the direction 90 on parts. As a guess I'd say it might be at 30 degree or something so eCabs is trying the get the grain to run that way

You'd think after all these years that should occur to me but as I never use that feature it didn't. Nonetheless, I just checked the \"add shelf\" settings and it is set at 180º just as always.

Even so, I'll carefully redo these two shelves and see if the problem goes away...I was just mostly just curious about it...

(Maybe I accidently hit the \"Freestyle Nesting\" toggle :D )

It would pay to highlight the part then check the option, sometimes I get things screwing up and even thought the default settings are correct they need to be reapplied to the part. By selecting the part you are forcing it to refresh to the default settings. Add Shelf will only afect new parts added.
