tabs
« on: July 14, 2007, 01:52:10 PM »
is there any way to have tabs short of manualy editing the gcode ?
i tried creating a dxf with 2 layers and the second layer is interupted for tabs, but when i clean up the image in lazycam the extra layer goes away. even if i have duplicated lines off.
i have lazycam pro, and its great, but i could seee being able to copy a chain and drop it down for tabs being very usefull
thanks

This is something that I have to add in Lcam and as you can see it is not as simple as you think :(

I hope to get started on it soon as there is an OEM that needs it for a bunch of machines that need to ship :) Nice to have the pressure to drive you to work all night!

Thanks

hmm , ok
i thought you might be able to do like a shape file, only on the bottom layer , that way we could place a rectangle with the width of our choice for the tab width
thanks
