Hi Conor,

That’s good news, and you have taught me something.

I didn’t know that the panel outline was drawn according to the Milling parameters.

Best regards,

Hi all, this is Conor’s latest reply:

Hi Ness, I think I may have solved it.

When there was a hole on a panel the thickness was correct but not so when it was milling.
I found a difference in the Polyboard post processor options.
Boring holes was defined as “thickness defined depth” where as the milling was “elevation defined depth”.
I have changed everything to “thickness defined depth” which now reads correctly in Woodwop.
I have yet to try it on the machine, fingers crossed.

Thanks, Conor

Hi Conor,

I can’t see Chris’s reply can you upload it again?

For me there’s no problem with the Polyboard DXF output so the only thing I can see it that WoodWop is not processing the data correctly.

Best regards,

Hi again,

Well I can’t see anything in the Polyboard DXF output, can you add the thickness in WoodWop,

Cheers,

Hi Ness, I added the thickness in WoodWop but the mortises machined at the wrong depth, the were too shallow to receive the tenon. I emailed a screen grab of my post processor to Chris in Homag and I attach his reply. I don’t understand it I’m afraid, any ideas?Thickness.jpgImage Enlarger

Thanks Conor

Hi Conor,

When I open your DXF files in Draftsight they all have thickness :

So the problem is not the DXF files but more likely a WoodWop setting.

Hi Ness, that’s strange because I’m not changing anything in the post processor.

The only difference I can see is the lack of any other tooling, holes etc.

Thanks, Conor

Hi Ness, it seems to be dxf 9,10,11 and twelve that come through as a zero thickness.

Thanks, Conor

Hi Conor,

In general the DXF files all have the polylines extruded to the panel thickness whether they are machined or not.

Can you post the files so we can have a look?

Hi all,

I have just nested a wardrobe and I noticed when I take the nested dxf files through my Woodwop post processor the nests that have perimeter machining and grooving or boring keep their thickness, the nests that just have perimeter machining come through as zero thickness. 

Is this usual?

Thanks Conor
