One says PP&G fabrication. the insides of the 'A’s are getting rejected by fusion 360 I assume because they are two small, what’s the work around for this?
The other is an address. I modified the 6 in 3600 to close a part left open that would have been too tight, but now the loop won’t select. I’ve look at it as close as I can and I can’t see where there are ends that don’t meet, what’s the trick for finding out where the problem is??
Does that automatically fill gaps and will it remove overlapping segments (ie, if two segments end close to each other, like they are ‘supposed’ to be connected, but actually cross each other so the ends need to be snipped off and then the intersection joined).
So, I reduced the distances, but the insides of the A’s will still no generate G-code due to linking constraints. They are 6mm wide at the bottom, which seems like enough with .05 distance for pierce. When I hover over the inside of the A’s to try to get them to chain in manually, the whole triangle won’t select, like there’s a problem with the model. But it extruded fine.
I don’t think you missed anything. This was perfect what you did. I am not sure what was going on with those letters. Normally I can put in a value of 0.0 for pierce clearance and lead-in distance but Fusion would not try to compute it. When I put in 0.01 in both spots, it made a pathway.
Here is where it got strange: I went back and edited the tool pathway and deleted the 0.01 in both locations and entered 0.0. It generated a pathway without any problems. Sometimes it is a little trial and error.
I know your comment was not directed at me but just because I couldn’t figure out what was going on, don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. I am still learning.
I will say that I think that some of the new changes with Fusion “Manufacturing” space are likely to be “improvements”; but, this contest between Fusion and SheetCAM is going to continue like FORD and DODGE. Actually, I do have a RAM 2021 and it is exquisite.
But, I do understand your passion for SheetCAM. SheetCAM has many positives.
