I moved your message into Opticut & Optinest

after looking your project and Opticut files,


First, you should check you have specified in materials libraries you have grain direction

Did you use the same folder for materials in Polyboard and Opticut? (make caution 5 & 6 isn't compatible)

After this check and opening your file .ocp Opticut well recognized grain direction

I have a project made from oak veneered MDF core, and am trying to work out how to get the grain to translate to opticut automatically without manually changing orientation for each panel.

I have the grain all correct in Polyboard but it seems to not translate to opticut properly.


As a note - i have just purchased opticut 6 but not gotten around to updating to it yet.


Look forward to your reply
