CN Sheet printout formatting

Postby Jeremy Schiffer » Wed, May 21 2014, 10:37AM

Pretty please could we have larger margins on the nest sheets printed by CN? The names are almost always crammed and overlapped, while there are huge margins that, if used, would alleviate 99% of the problem. With sugar on top? :mrgreen:

Increase your collar and clearance between parts in the general settings of the nesting program .

Blair,

I believe Jeremy is talking about the PRINT OUT margins and NOT those associated with the actual nesting. As you can see in Jeremy's report example, long part names and over-run other columns.

Jeremy - in addition to your "margin" adjustments, perhaps some of the columns need to be redefined (some reduced in width, others increased). Also, a point size or two reduction in the font used as well as some of these fields actually "wrapping" in extreme cases would help.

You're right, Brad, the text overlapping is what I'm talking about. I have not seen any way to change the width of the columns or the size of the font on these printouts. Have I just overlooked something? Please say "Yes, dummy, you have." :lol:
