It seems to do it with most cabinets.

But this one when exported through the standard VCarve post-processor will have the issue.

Can you upload the cabinet you’re using for this?

The tests I have done do not give me a problem, or I do not understand the problem, if need be I can ask if Ness can take a look too.

Cheers, Alexandre

Hi All.

Not often I get stumped. When I export with post-processor to Vcarve for two-sided cutting I get the following problem.

Even though the right and left panels look correctly imported when I apply the layer to side two etc. I find that the side one and side two layers to top and bottom mean that both side panels become ‘right side panels’ or left side panels’.

I am not sure whether the post-processor needs an adjustment, however, all other panels nest correctly just the side panels become the same.

Any ideas.
