Hi Ain,

Have you set the CID pp to output the “overall” or “net dimensions”?

If set to overall you tell Polyboard you want to machine after having edged.

“net” says you are machining before.

Opticut however, used the cutting list sizes.

The cutting lists can also be set to overall or net.

So how you set these parameters depends on your edge bander  and when you add edging.

Some edge banders will calibrate the board planing off the thickness of the edge before applying it.

For instance if you set both pp and cutlists to net, you cut, machine then add edging on a edge bander that doesn’t calibrate the board.

If your edge bander calibrates you will use “net” for both pp and cutting lists

If your edge bander doesn’t calibrate, but you want to edge before machining (sometime useful if the edge bander doesn’t like having holes on the panel face) then you would set “net ” for the cutting lists, and “overall” for the pp.

all the best,

Ness

Hi Ness!

Problem is different panel sizes in Opticut DXF files and Polyboard CID files.

Polyboard outputs not accept  the thickness of edges (sample project 2 mm)

Example: Opticut dxf 2207 cut panel (oversize 5mm)

             Polyboard cid 2209 milling outline (oversize 5 mm )

        Different is exactly thickness edge 2mm.     

Where is our understanding?

Best regards!

Ain
