Standard shapes for flame/plasma cutting
« on: July 05, 2008, 04:04:07 AM »
Does any one have a standard shapes wizard that could do the shapes in the attached file.
I am willing to pay for it.

Regards

Sorry - I'm having a great deal of difficulty downloading the file - can you post it again.
Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.

Jim, possibly you're having a Adobe (or whatever PDF file program you have) issue?

The file downloads fine.

Thanks Chip

KTM -
1. Are the sizes of the sheet metal standard - e.g. 8 feet by 4 feet etc
2. Are you wanting to be able to specify different sizes of piece on each
3. Having specified the size of work do you want to calculate best fit  and how many you can get out of each.
4. I take it the bed of the machine is fixed, so any different angles of cut would have to be software induced.

Hi Jim

1)No
2)Yes
3)The nesting can be done with the nesting wizard
4)The cuts will only be vertical. The machines are 3 axis with THC on the Z axis.
 Mach only controls X & Y and switches the THC on auto/manual
Attached is a sample of the code
