That is a shame. Creating new version of each of the panels we have will take ages. None of them are simple rectangles.

We will just have to manually edit them as the come out of the software into our CAM.

Hi,

The off cuts in the stock are not stored as DXF files so you can’t edit them in CAD.

I’d suggest that you simply create new panels to the off cut sizes you have.

You can list the sizes in a text file and then import them using the Import button in the “Edit stock panel” command.

Hope this is helpful,

Ness

We have recently got a new machine and now are homing our machine in a different corner than we used to, because of this all of the offcuts stored in Optinest now need to be rotated 90 degrees. Where are all of the DXF files stored for the offcuts so I can manually rotate each of them? We have got 83 of them to do! Otherwise when we nest onto the offcuts all of the grain directions will be wrong on these parts.

Cheers
