Dear Ness,

Thank you for hand holding us through this process of integrating Polyboard to Biesse CNC. 

We just had an issue that the horizontal drilling position is taking from the top face of the panel. Because of this if there are any difference in the thickness of the material, which is bound to happen in plywood, the perfection of the cabinet is not there. 

If it can take the reference from the bottom face of the panel, then this problem can be solved. Kindly help to configure this.

Thank you 

Antony S Brighton

Hi Antony,

To add the “;” look at this video:

The files for both faces are in the available fields:

.

To have the outline on only one face choose this option in the “faces to profile when 2 faces exported” options:

Hope this is helpful,

Ness

Dear Ness,

I’m not sure if you understand the question correctly. There is no possibility to add any field manually. It can be added only if it is available in the table. If there is any other way please help me find it by a video or something.

I need the outline machining only in one of the two faces. in this case the second face only.

I need to sort this ASAP. your quick response will be appreciated

Cheers

Hi Antony,

To add the “;” you must add a Text field and type “;”.

Polyboard exports both machined faces of a panel.

The faces are named f0 for the left and upper sides and f1 for the right and bottom sides.

The horizontal machining is always on the f0 side.

Here’s a screen shot of the face naming conventions (in french) that are in the Polyboard Conventions pdf attached:

faces-conventions.pngImage Enlarger

As the horizontal machining is always on the f0, I would suggest that you nest the second face f1 and then put the panel on the cnc for the first face and horizontal machining.

I also attach a compressed file that contains an utility that auto-generates the layer names for automatic tool allocation in BiesseWorks using DXF files.

This should enable you easily setup the layer names in Polyboard for using Optinest and Bsolid.

all the best

Ness

Hi Ness,

Thank you for your clarification for the point -1 and point 4

The point when formatting the Rapport file we are not able to insert ; as there is no ; in the available items list. We’re also not able to find the file name of the first face. Can you please help me how to get it.

The point 3 of segregating the machining of one face and the second face as below is still not clarified. Request your help. 

The first face machining should have only the outline and all vertical drilling and machining. The second face should have all the second face drilling and machining along with the horizontal drilling. However the outline should not be there in the second face programme”

Thank you 

Antony S Brighton

Hi Antony,

To get file names without special characters you must export the names as numbers only.

Then set up the PP report file to  include the number and the part reference.

To get the “;” separator in the report file you have to add it explicitly as a text field between the others:

To not display the “0” in dimensions go to Tools>units and un-tick “Display non significant Zeros”

Hope this is helpful.

Best regards,

Ness

Dear Ness,

Thank you for your explanation. We got the edge trimming activated and able to tweak the outline. I still have these issues

  1. The part name still got special characters like space. (as in “left side” )
  2. Part program we are able to generate in the Rapport PP file. But when we set it up the ; separator is not there. So all the data is showing in a single column. We need the data as per the attached picformat-needed-1.JPGImage Enlarger
  3. The first face machining should have only the outline and all vertical drilling and machining. The second face should have all the second face drilling and machining along with the horizontal drilling. However the outline should not be there in the second face programmeFolder-name.JPGImage Enlarger
  4. The folder name of the part programmes should not have the decimal. for example the material thickness of 18mm is coming as 18.0. This confuses the B Nest. So it should come as 18 only and if it is 17.5 then decimal is permitted (17.5 is ok but not 18.0)

Hi Antony,

Most of these otpions can be set up in the Post-Processor Options. Go to File>Post Processor Options.

Then select the BiesseNest CIX post.

Set:

“faces to profile” to “face one only”

“export file name” to standard Name (reference & number)”

” export whole outline” to “Export”

 pp-setup.pngImage Enlarger

Of course you will also need to set up the other options and tool names, etc according to your machine setup.

To get the cutting lists with a column containing the machine files you can use the PP Report file setup:

pp-report-setup.pngImage Enlarger

This works like a cutting list set up but with extra options that might be useful in Biessenest.

To have the correct setup for this file can you tell us how Biessenest imports the cutting lists?

best regards,

Ness

Hi Stefan / Ness,

We are trying to integrate polyboard to BNest for nesting production. Please guide me for the following.

  1. CIX file with outer edge profiling for nesting
  2. Cutting list should have part programme file in one column.
  3. The part programme of face one and two shall be in a single file
  4. Programme name and part name should not have any special characters
  5. Programme name and part name should be same
  6. Programme folder name shall not have a decimal “0” if the thickness is only whole number. for thickness with decimal we can have decimals

Thanks in advance.
