problems with CN 5.43

Postby Mark Hesketh » Tue, Nov 18 2008, 6:32AM

Installed 5.43 a few days ago and ran into a problem with pocket cuts. On SOME, not all, of the pockets, the cutter runs half the diameter of the cutter into the part when running the cleanup pass, resulting in a clean pocket, with a half circle cut into the material at one end of the pocket.

Also, after updating CN, I discovered that my tool group settings had all been deleted. All of my material-specific tool setups are now gone.

I have had to revert to a previous version in order to get pockets to consistently cut correctly.

We are currently looking into this situation, however, if you'd please send your supporting files to we can also use your files for testing. We would like to see your design file along with the Export from control nesting.

Wow, this is going bad. I haven't nested anything with 5.43 yet. Only a couple of sheets with dovetail dbxs. I will revert to 5.41 tough. Don't want to risk it. Too many ppl found all different bugs.
