x axis error

Postby Alex Bowler » Wed, May 16 2012, 3:55AM


I need to cut a part that is right at the edges of the sheet (I can only leave 2 mm each side) and i am getting a x axis out of bounds error at machine.
I have the nest to edges option selected and a collar of 2mm, when I graph the job no error comes up, it will start cutting then stop and the
X axis error will come up. I assume it is to do with the part being at the edge of the bed but I have to keep it at that size and i cannot see any
Physical reason for it not to be able to.

In Ecabinets set the material to be bigger than it really is, e.g 1225mm wide and 2445 Long etc.

Also you dont want to have a 2mm collar as that moves the panels in 2mm from the edge and with nest to edge it kinda like a double negative.
