I talked about StairDesigner. I assumed that you would see the topic that I posted to that’s why did not specify.

I have done it manually so far. hoped there was a better way.

All the best,

Hi Ott,

For DXF output it depends on whether you are talking about StairDesigner of Polyboard.

For StairDesigner 7, for the time being you can’t change the X/Y output of the DXF files, so this has to be done manually before adding tool paths.

The developers are working on a Pro PP version that will have a lot of extra features for machining but this will not be ready for a few months.

For Polyboard you can use the “Orientation” option in the PP setup:

The € sign is dependant on your Windows set up. If you set up the windows currency to be $ Polyboard and StairDesigner will use the $ sign.

All the best,

Hi Ott,

There is no possibility to my knowledge to have the dxf outputed in another direction. Also the euro sign is not changeable. I do not know if this will be an added feature in stairdesigner in coming versions. This is something Ness can answer on.

Would it be possible to place the components along the y axis exporting to dfx? Which is the long side of my cnc machine.

Can i change the dollar sign to a euro sign. So I can immediately present the correct price to customers?

Thanks in advance
