Quantity Issue

Postby Georgi Baltov » Thu, Apr 29 2010, 3:33PM

Hi Guys,

I have exploited the limits of CN5.58 and I managed to get it in trouble and eventually crash it.

I always thought that overall cabinet quantity should overwrite the part quantity. If you select that you need x amount of that part in a cabinet that you want y times, you automatically get y amount of that part as well. Please check my attached pictures and export.

What I tried to do is cut some parts from a cabinet that I already cut 6 times. I deselected everything and selected only that one part. It showed the right quantity - 1piece. Then I found I need one more piece of a different part so instead of selecting it the same way I changed the overall cabinet quantity to 1 and the part that I previously changed quantity of showed on screen with negative value. If you decide to cut that negative value you basically crash CN.

Please take a look and let me know if I can assist you with anything else.

Your suggestion would help simplify the option. We'll get this quirk sorted out. Thanks for the input.
