Hi Kirk,

I’m a fellow user, not a Stairdesigner expert, but I encounter a similar issue, perhaps not the same..

On certain stairs especially curved wall strings I have an issue with my Fanuc controller receiving some of the post processed files. It took a while but I realised that Stairdesigner uses really high value radii and adds aometimes 5 decimal places to the end of them on the edges of the string panels. The biggest I measured worked out at around a 3km radius! All I do is trim off the outside lines and redraw them manually with straight lines and fillets so I know that I only have radius values that my Fanuc controller can manage.

You could try that..

Hope that may help.

Cheers

Mike

Hi Kirk,

Can you post the vcarve file so we can take a closer look?

best regards,

I am trying to get tool paths to run on vcarve pro after exporting from stair designer.

Every time I run a preview it doesn’t follow the vectors and cuts all over the stringer. does anybody know how to tidy this up as I feel I have tried everything and im still no further forward.

Thanks,

Kirk
