rotated part on nest not cutting like layout shown

Postby Thomas strembitsky » Thu, Mar 08 2018, 1:54PM

cutting some doors and I rotated a piece and it added another piece that was also rotated
please see attached pictures.... ive never seen this before.
this is with nesting from the lower left
when you rotate a part it looks like its operations don't get moved along with it

Same problem here, although in my case the model always stays put exactly where Control Nesting originally nested it. If I move or rotate the part, the model stays behind, everything else moves.

Based on the old "Doctor, it hurts when I do this." joke...

Router Operator: "Hey Tech Support - The machine messes up when a rotate the part like this!"
Tech Support: "Well then, don't rotate the part like that."

:roll:

I wonder if Tommy W. is also working in metric???

its not my fault when things don't work how they are supposed to. I think blaming the operator is pretty low... thermwood needs to spend more time with testing out the new features , because being stuck with a bug for months on end gets old fast. why don't they offer a beta branch like they do with ecabinets so this can get fixed while its in active development?


I still find bugs like this which is sad
its looking for a 1/4 or 3/8 downshear

Thomas...

You do realize that I was joking in my post. I hope you do not really believe that anyone was blaming you. :(

The "Beta Branch" for Control Nesting might be a good idea.

Seeing as there seems to be regular issues with how "metric" is handled (or not handled), perhaps a review of how metric settings, input (DXFs, Manual Input) and output is processed.

I see the same here and have it listed to be looked at by the software engineers.

Do you have job on that you can get this error message with? If so can post an export from Control Nesting? I will most likely also need the .twd as well as the actual eCabinets job (if it is an eCabinets job).
