Bernhard,

I've just tried the script, it works great but the holding tabs are 3mm high and the Target Depth is only 1.5mm.
Maybe the Tabs need to check Target Depth ?

Eddy, thanks for response !

To make this little script waterproof, a lot of effort is required.
But -to be honest- I´m the greatest lazybone walking on this earth,
so I decided to make no checks. 

But I will correct the demofile for the next revision.
best regards

Bernhard

Getting code to work is fun. Getting it to be foolproof is a career.

There´s a nice update for auto nesting.

If the definitiion layer 00 xxxxxxx contains points, they are collected to a list in order
to nest all parts. The price you have to pay for that auto-nesting is :
You´ll have to define at least one part.
(Without nesting the script is running without a part definition as usual)

Have fun !

best regards

I found it would be nice to set the holding tab´s width and height.
Also I figured out how to mill above z=0.
I need it to leave wood a little thicker for sanding afterwards to correct thickness.

Remember the option T will be inverted : T3 mills down to Z-3,
T-1 to Z=+1
Yes... I know... but this easier to me (I´m thinking with my stomach instead of my brain)

#
# 13.3.2019
# Negative Value for T results in milling ABOVE Z=0 by raising
# the stock surface to +(Value).
#
# Changed internals : now options longer than 1 characters are recognized
#
# Added new option HH (Holding Tab Height) and HL (HoldingTab Length)
#

Play loud !

Bernhard
