Rolling Nest BUG

Postby David Hall » Wed, Nov 09 2005, 5:27PM

When importing an Excel spread sheet of panels the material is always created with NO grain. Even with \"Yes\" in column \"I\"

I tried updating the material and checking the grain box but when I nest it, RN just creates a new material (with the same name) without grain.

I'm using 4.79.

Please fix.

Regards,
Dave

I don't have any answer to your problem but I just wanted to know what's the benefit of using excel sheets to nest panels ?

Thanks

Hi Dan,

I run a CNC and edgebanding service, and as you can imagine, get all kinds of requests. This one is a bunch of shelves (yup, just simple rectangles) that they want cut and edgebanded.

I could draw each one in a CAD program and create DXF files, I could add them as display panels in eCabs, or (once this bug gets fixed) take my customer's spreadsheet, upload it and cut.

Regards,
Dave

David,
I was able to recreate the problem you have described and we are currently working on a fix for it. Keep your eye on the THM website for the release of the next update to Control Nesting.
