We are using Polyboard -> Genio R8 to add the tooling using a wizard and nest -> Biesseworks

Hi,

Can you confirm on which CNC you export the programme?

I have just opened up the file and yes it has recognised the material thickness, see below.

There are a few hangovers from this though to get the file to look right. I have moved the groove elevation from 0 to 21.3 to match and would also need to move the Z Centres for the drills. But as a proof on concept yes it is doing what we expected it to do. I have just manually moved the elevations on the attached DXF to positive to show what the ideal DXF output would be - attached - and showing it opened in Genio with in finding the correct panel thickness.

Hi, 

 

Can you let me know if Genio is really able to recognise the thickness with a positive value, but I doubt it, if joined a DXF manually modified in CAD program

Thanks, it would be great if you could.

 

I have just tried to change that and it didn't help I am afraid.

Hi,

 

I can ask the development team but I don't think it's possible,

have you changed the origin of the panel? to see if it works better.

All the best, Alex

As I understand it.

 

Because Polyboard are exporting the negative values, Genio is not recognising them and is then defaulting to the one shown in the option screen you have sent.

 

Is there a way to make them a positive in Polyboard?

Hi,

 

From memories, is 2D cad based softwares, and thickness are taken from your Genio option

and don't work with line thickness

When exporting a project into a DXF and opening it in Genio/Autocad we are getting the thickness as a negative value.

This is creating issues where it is placing the machining the material thickness too high.  It is not automatically recognising the panel dimensions when we bring in the file, and it is therefore defaulting to 18mm. Rather than the 25.2mm that it should be.

Where is the option in Polyboard to make this a positive value? I cant seem to find it in the postprocessor options. Thanks
