Extra circles - what am I doing wrong
« on: January 17, 2010, 02:33:14 PM »
I'm trying to pocket this little flower shape, and I'm getting extra circles on one of the pedals.  Here is the DXF, lcam file, and screenshots that may be helpful.

This project is actually several flowers and a letter, but it seems that the pocket function won't generate anything when I have it all in one dxf.  I'll take it one step at a time though.  

Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong.

Hi, Mattw

Just tried your dxf, Seems to work fine hear, Did a Clean, Optimize, Offset and Post.

What ver of L-Cam are you using

Thanks for checking it out, Chip.  I guess it works better with offsets than with pockets.
I'm on 3.00.  Didn't realize there was a 3.00.2, but I'll download it now.  I'll post my results in a bit.

Using offsets, I was able to get my toolpath, but I'd be interested in getting the pockets to work if anyone can point out what I was doing wrong.

Have a look at the manual located in Members Docs as it covers pocketing.

Hi, Mattw

I missed the pocket part of your post, Outside seems to work, Inside has some issues, Ll-Cam is a bata version and dose have issues.
