Hi,

Polyboard can not yet separate these 2 operations on its own for this particular request

It will work in two stages with different post-processor configurations.

1st step export the files in a first folder with the option to give previously “outline > ignore”
here to call “TPA_CN_OT_IGNR”

2nd steps
-Create a 2nd post-processor with the option “outline > export” by duplicating the post processor to keep the other configuration identical that we will call “TPA_CN_OT_EXP” for example

-Remove fixing links by selecting all cabinet in project mode and apply sub-method with NIL link

Or just apply this NIL sub-methodes link in single cabinet mode

NiL-SM-2.pngImage Enlarger

-export to a new folder with the post processor creates previously “TPA_CN_OT_EXP”

But this solution don’t separate grooves,

Or using Opticut with Post-Pro export?!

I think that Ness can probably better inform you than me about this solution

Hope it’s help you

All the best, Alex

Hi Grover,

You want to have outline command without Tooling in a separte program?


Hello Alex,

Yes please, we need outline command for cutting squares and a separate one(tooling) for grooves and boring.

Thanks,
Grover

Hi Grover,

I don’t know TPACAD either, but if the line of code is the outline of the panel you can delete it by setting the “Export whole outline” option the PP options to “Ignore”.

Best regards,

Ness  

Hi Ness,

Would it be possible for Polyboard to separate the outline command?

Hi Grover,

Can you change the post processor version to Vitap and try again?

Hi again,

I’ve just updated the file upload parameters to allow pb-reg files so you can try to upload again.

Best regards,

Sorry, I can’t upload the post-processor file here for unknown reason(error).
Maybe I can send it to you via e-mail.

Thanks,

Hi Grover,

Can you tell us which post processor you are using?

Can you also send us the pp settings?

To do this export the post processor to a pb-reg file :

export-pp.pngImage Enlarger

and post the file to this forum.

Best regards,

Ness

Hello Ness,

Sorry for the confusion since I pointed out the wrong code.

Apparently a single error appears when exporting Polyboard to CAM software. Is there a way to solve this?

(attached is the Polyboard file)

Thank you,

hi

I do not know TpaCAD …

but by experience it’s line corresponds to the “Profiling” of the panel

Would it be possible to explain what is the problem on this subject?

Can you post your cabinet too? I think for deletion of this line you must have “Oversizing” on one panel?

all the best, Alex (and sorry for my English)

Hi Alex,

It worked perfectly fine, thanks. Though I need to ask another one. Is it possible to delete this command on Polyboard? (please see attached)

Hello,

To always have the same reference it is necessary to use fixed rules!

Who well defined will always give the same starting position

Here is a piece of furniture with mobile shelves that will give you an overview.

Set Depth of this joined cabinet to 800mm  😉

Hello Ness,

Already tried it and it’s working, thanks. However my client wants all reference point to be in the front edge of this project.

Is this possible so that all drilling should start in front and leaving all asymmetries on the back?

Thanks,
Grover

Hi Syslab,

You can set the positioning coordinates origins by going to File>Print Setup>Tooling Setup and un ticking Dimension Origin>Relative to nearest edge.

Is it possible to set our preferred reference point for these drilling coordinates(see attached)?
