Bad KD holes - CN 5.47

Postby David Hall » Wed, Feb 18 2009, 11:19AM

The "pockets" created for KD fitting holes in the attached file are bad. See code starting at Line 4209, Sheet:3 part:5 (T20) in attached CNC file.

By changing T20 to allow interpolation, we're up and running.

With T20 as pocket tool, no drill or interpolation for T20, convert line and arc to drill: On, We get two pockets for each KD hole. One looks like it might be correct. The other is a mystery... cutting into adjacent parts and creating dumpster food.

Hi Dave. I see the problem. We will get this addressed in the next update to Control Nesting.
