I am trying to use a contour dependent tool path component in a block matrix. My issue is the machine isn't doing what the screen shows. I see geometry on the screen correctly spaced with the x axis matrix. But when it cuts, it moves what seems to be mm instead of inches for the matrix. The contour cuts the correct size in inches, but each matrix is millimeters apart. Does anybody see anything wrong with what Ive got in the mpr's below?

hello,

if I look at the sub-component and you copy the geometry a second time with h+h (same as in your programme) I get the same result.
The raster value "h" is not big enough I think.

also next time its easier to imbed the sub-component then you don't have to send it as a extra prog.

best regards
Robin

What is most confusing is that woodwop shows the correct spacing on the screen, then the program cuts incorrectly. When I multiply my raster value of "h" by 25.4, I get correctly spaced cuts in reality, but the terminal screen shows a very deceiving picture. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.banghead.gif

I changed everything including the contours to metric conversion (25.4) Does this work?

That did it. Thank you! Is there a method to this, or did you just fix it from my descriptions?

I ran into the same issue when I used standard measurements but now I switched over to almost everything metric. I realized that I didn't convert my contours into metric. Very impressive program. Love to see people's creativity.

I made a simple variable program that uses one saw blade tool path, using the block macro to advance the cut a particular distance and make another kerf.
The 1st attempt at this program worked as it should, then our operator changed the length of the blank and how many kerfs and the program malfunctioned. It turned inches into mm for the spacing of the block macro.
I attached the program that worked correctly, and then the modified program that went to mm. and the third program is the one I have used to fool the machine into doing what I want by using a *25.4
Honestly I expected the program to do the mm thing because of my previous struggles, but the fact that it cut correctly on the first attempt makes me believe it is possible to make it run correctly without multiplying numbers by 25.4
Does anybody have a variable program with block macros that works correctly I could look at to see what I am doing wrong?
