Please read FAQ if any problem.

Additional Information

Known Issues

  • DDL - It is impossible to close the contour of the dado with branches and intersections. The program receives an input of not more than 2 circuits, and each branch is isolated by new contours. You can split the branched dadoes on a few simple steps and easy bridge it in the right place. And wait for the NCP command that may solve this problem.

  • OSL - Puts all the circuits inside the detail on NC_Inside layer. But this is not always true. Can be lug (protrusion) inside pocket on items. And they have to be milled outside. The program cannot understand for flat images. Be careful and wait for the NCP command that may solve this problem.

  • The program can leave small bits of arcs added to the contours of unneeded circle and commit other errors if you properly configure the tolerance. Be careful when changing the parameters of accuracy. Return to the default settings if you notice oddities.
