CAD Path

Postby Bill OConnell » Wed, Jul 06 2005, 3:34PM

I was trying to set up a spline to handle some curved molding. I recall from 91000 class that we used a program called CAD Path to get a smoother fit. I created my spline and checked all the points and it looked good.

I then ran CAD Path and when I went to test the program I got a \"Z axis out of bounds error\". In looking at the program it switches to absolute coordinates at the point of the spline and the Z values go below the surface of the table. I am not sure what I am missing.
