MeshCAM Beta 4 new interesting issues - stock size

Postby larynx » Sat May 13, 2017 7:03 pm

Funny thing happened today and I have no explanation for it - but here it is.

1. opened, loaded file and noticed that in "inches" my stock was only 0.030" in Z, when I new this was for 0.75" ply.
2. so I changed the 0.030" to 0.75" manually and the display looked nuts.
3. so I selected "fit to stock" and the same thing - 0.030" Z appeared, along with incorrect X & Y which I just noticed
4. so I switch to "mm" and got the correct inches.
5. then to inches and got incorrect stock.
6. back to mm and got the correct inches

7. so I thought - apply and see what happens so I APPLIED "mm" not inches
8. reopened define stock and had proper dimensions, but the selection was "mm" not inches....and note the XYZ lines - way below stock ? Uh.....

I am have run this file in MeshCAM 5 and it loads fine. But I decided to try Beta 4 because in 5 the "machine region" dxf is giving me fits so I decided to try it in Beta 4

screen shots UNALTERED after selections - but I expect no one to believe me, cause I don't believe me either......... is this April 1st?

I am not aligned with nor do I have any relationship with MeshCAM or its staff other than being a user [that sounds a little like I have a dependency problem]
