Manual nesting offals

Postby Tommy Wieler » Wed, Apr 08 2020, 9:00AM

Here's something that crops up quite often when I'm using manual nesting to move parts around. In the attached example, I've moved a few of the smaller parts to give them some additional part clearance to ensure that they don't move during cutting. For some reason, offal shapes get calculated differently when I tweak a nest. That should be one offal piece, but for some reason it wants to split it into two.
Just thought I'd throw that out there, and maybe someone would be willing to look into it in their spare time. (If spare time is a thing at Thermwood, someone's probably saying "spare time, are you kidding?!?!")

Cheers, and stay safe everybody!

I can get it to do it as well with my settings. I'll pass it along to the software engineers to have a look at. Thanks for the heads up.
