The better way when you using external machining is to set your Edge thickness in Polyboard to 0mm,


Like that you have information from document en set into Net dimension with over-sizing,


All the best, Alexandre

I am trying to get polyboard/ Opticut to output overall dimensions when including edgebanding (we have edgebander with pre-miller so cut board to finish size) but also want to include oversizing/ pre-cut where required. When trying this overall dimensions gives the final size and not the oversize/ pre-cut, the net gives the oversize but also takes off the edgeband dimensions. Is there a way to achieve both?

kind regards
