Tool path difference
« on: July 31, 2022, 06:40:56 am »
Hello Forum

It's probably something easy..........
I am failing to understand the tool path difference between the upper and lower profiles.  (tank tabs.JPG)   
The lower inverted profiles used in the .cb are a mirror images of the upper. 
With Inside/Outside selected to outside, the lower profile executes an inner cut while the upper will go outer (see jpeg)
Thanks again

The profiles are not great, they have 14 segments when they need just 6, in addition the 'Closed' property is set to False.
If you set all those 'Closed' properties to True then it will work as expected.
