I have just looked through these settings and cant see anything that seems to allow what we wanted. Could you please point them out to me?

We use Optinest as a post-processor.

Hi, 

the configuration of postpro is quite complex given the number of possibilities (cn / software) it is sometimes a question of finding the configuration most suited to your needs,

A very large number of possibilities already exist.

Sometimes there is even a new option to add to the postpro when updating, that it is impossible to list them all because it is so varied.

The addition of functions may even be already present, because other users would have already requested it outside the forum

Since new version  (7.03 it seems to me) a new much more powerful management engine has allowed the addition of new functions

I invite you to duplicate your current PP, and to look at all the options that could have been added, even hidden behind the “…”

Some of the oldest users still spend 10-15 minutes of work after the export inside the CNC software as they haven’t seen that a new option could be selected

Here we can recommend a standard installation of the PP set up on most CNCs but we cannot adjust them for each person, and their working habits,

Hope that with testing you can find one of these new options to optimize your work

Cheers, Alexandre

(EDIT: we can help you with your specific set up in a 1-2-1 support pack)

That has worked, but it feels like a work around, it has also worked on the mitered joints else where in this project.

I imagine that almost everyone who is using Polyboard is cutting the parts on a 3 axis machine, there should be an option similar to the drilling options to allow this to be controlled on a global scale. Could the developers look into adding this?

Cheers

Hi,

On 3 axis I see only one solution it’s to use Chamfer > Right Edge (+)

The part will be cut in overall dimensions at nesting then allows you to complete the cutting angle on another machine

Hope that’s helpful

Yes, that all looks like it is for drilling. I have tried to change them but got stuckScreenshot-2020-10-27-140933.jpgImage Enlarger

I am sure I have seen the setting somewhere but I cant find it now. Is there an option somewhere to make all of the mortise and tenon joints perpendicular to the surface rather than parallelto the panel it is meeting?

In the example below we want it to work like it does on the front of the unit (to the right) as on the back of the unit (to the left) We cut all of our panels on a nesting 3 axis machine so this joint detail is not ideal.

Could someone help?
