Tangent cutting in HPLG
« on: October 21, 2009, 09:15:56 AM »
I should do more homework, but if someone could set me on the right track.

I'm trying to use the tangent option to make a glass cutting head for my cnc.
Coming from Corel X4 I was looking for a way to translate curves into small straight line segments for Mach3 to calculate the tangent angle.
I was advice to export as HPLG as this gives me control over straight lines from curves and Mach 3 opens HPLG files.

Don't know anything about HPLG yet,...  going this route, will I get to the point where Mach3 will indeed be able to set the angle for tangent cutting?
How does it go then, does HPLG still translate into G-code first?

Any leads are appreciated.

Thanks
