Rhino to Carbide Create Issues


(Eric Wilcox) #1

Greetings,

I have a couple of issues with importing dxf files from Rhino 5 to Carbide Create. Both occur simultaneously (for the most part).

Issue 1:

Tool Path: In choosing the correct areas to pocket, it appears it is going to pocket the area in the dotted area, but when I click “Ok” it pockets the entire design.

Issue 2:

Missing Polylines: Seemingly setting up everything correctly on Rhino (I can lasercut, vinyl cut, etc)… I import a file to Carbide Create, make a new tool path, and the simulation shows missing polylines.

Anyone have any suggestions?

(I will be uploading photos soon… taking a little bit to upload)

1 - please post the files and we’ll look into them.

2 - when Carbide Create generates a preview it first does an optimization pass where it discards small objects which ought to be too small to show. Sometimes it gets that wrong.
