Hi Dean, Polyboard 6.04b is available from today to download and install from the normal Polyboard download page. It fixes this polyline inversion issue. Thanks for bringing it to our attention, Stefan

Hi again,

There seems to be a bug here. Polyboard is systematically inverting the arc directions and the developers are working to find and correct this for the next update.

For the time being we'll just have to draw the arcs in the opposite direction to get the correct shape into Polyboard.

Sorry about that.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Dean,

I've sent this problem to the developpers to look at.

In the meantime, wish you a happy and prosperous 2017.

For your information, we are getting some prototypes of our nest-fix made in plastic by a company in High Wycombe.

I've changed a bit the design to be autolocking and I'll send you an example to test  when we receive them.

All the best,

Ness

Hi Dean,

I can't seem to reproduce your error.

I've loaded the 

DXF shape into the Polyboard curves library and then used it as an inner tooling and everything seems to work.

Can you send me a cabinet with curve ?

cheers,

Hi Dean,

When I open the DXF in Draftsight I get this:

Are you sure that you are importing the right DXF into Polyboard ?

cheers,

Ness
