Mill Wizard v1.0.17 Drill List of holes
« on: December 02, 2014, 10:19:18 PM »
Hi Ron (et al.),

I have struggled to get MW to import a CVS file with a list of hole locations. In particular, I have found that it requires that each X,Y coordinate have the same number of digits and it typically messes up importing any minus signs. I have been trying to import an Excel generated CVS file (generated on a Mac). I would love the ability to simply copy and past into this list.

Is this possible ???

thx,
jake

I did some testing of the import function, but only with a short test file I made. Please post one of your Excel files here and I will test it. It should import any list of X,Y values.

Hi Ron-

attached are 2 example files (as ZIP) that do not import correctly (for me). My workaround has been to force the entries to have the same number of digits (both before and after the decimal) and to double check and fix the - sign for the negative values which often does not import.
thx for looking at this.
best
jk

ok, I think its fixed. Attached to this reply is a zip file, unzip it, leave the .exe on the desktop is ok, and run it,.

This file also has the new Polygon and Polyline options

Edit: I removed the file, it will not work for anyone until I get my dev system fixed.  We are hot on the new feature of polylines and I think in a week or two it will be released, at least as a test version.

It runs on my system, but then I have all the development stuff loaded there as well. I guess i will have to build a full install kit. I will post that when I can.
