2 sided machining

Postby larynx » Tue Oct 30, 2018 3:29 pm

Is it me - or has anyone noticed that 2-sided only seems to work over the x axis?

Apparently I have been luck till now - just loaded a two sided file and realized it will not work, it is Y-Axis oriented to flip.

Perhaps it would be nice to have a box for which axis to flip over when selecting two sided as the job.

Anyone? Am I incorrect? Always looking for what I am doing wrong.
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]

Maybe you could output two files from your cad program, and flip them in the y axis there?

I never use the 2 sided machining option, seems like it would only work for models requiring symmetrical depth-

Maybe I should only design things that conform to the requisites of the program...
