Hi Shafeek,

The only way to see if a part is rotated is to look at it’s dimensions.

OptiCut can’t display whether a part is grooved or not but you can tell by it’s name (reference) whether it requires grooving or other machining. You can also print the labels for each part with the machine file name and even have it printed as a bar code for loading the correct machine file.

It’s also possible to add extra data to labels so you could add manually a field for grooved parts but this is likely a bit tedious.

If you are not already doing it, I would strongly suggest that you print the labels with the part names and stick them onto you parts as they leave the saw.

Best regards,

Ness

Hi ,

Is there any way to identify from the Opticut cutting diagram if the part is rotated ?

Also is there anyway to see information that the piece has grooves on it for Back sheet insertion ?

(PS – This information is helpful for us as we do the groove in a seperate machine after cutting)

Regards

Shafeek
