Hi, everyone. I apologize in advance if this is a basic question but I’m still new to the software and have been having a consistent and very frustrating experience.
I’m cutting foam for tool box shadowboards and have a -1.75mm Offset for the interior geometries to account for an overall kerf of 3.5mm. If I have a border set to output and run the program the interior geometries’ kerfs go to the outside instead of staying in. I’ve drawn a single horizontal line from geometric quadrant to quadrant for reference. You can see here that with the outer border not set to output, the tool path offsets in, as desired:
If I turn the outer borders on, to output, then the cut path moves outside of all of the geometries.
This is forcing me to output two separate files: one to cut all interior shapes, and then another to cut out the entire rectangle that they live in. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
