Arc Dxf Ramp Error

Postby Stephane Kovari » Fri, May 09 2014, 8:22AM

Recently we've been noticing that when we try to cut a 4inch arc using a *.dxf in the control nesting, it seems to cut the in-ramp corner straight into our piece then follow the correct arc and then it finishes again notched inside the arc!!!! :wall: checked the dxf and there is nothing out of the ordinary! I lowered the ramp to 0.001 since it did not allow me to erase it completely and it still notches the arc but does not create long ramp (of course)!

Please help!

I'll try to clarify my problem! The problem is when we use the control nest to nest dxfs that are in an arc form. the outline ramp-in doesn't realise that it is an arc and therefore cuts straight the length of the in-ramp and then follows my arc. This has been happening only since the latest update!!! I now have to manually nest them and create a custom cutting program for each nest!! not very efficient :| Also while nesting it is doing a horrible job of it! Chec This Photo of a nest!!

Any ideas????
