hpgl conversion problems

Post by edi » Sat May 19, 2007 7:38 pm


I have tried to generate a cutfile for my CNC mill (hpgl) with CAM expert. It looks ok, apart from two things:

1. I have specified to order lines from inside out, but this is not done when the outside line is a circle.

2. One part is looking ok in CAM expert, but the hpgl code is erroneous. It's an arc which is drawn the wrong way around (only the part of the circle which is *not* supposed to be drawn is being drawn). Both PCNC (my CNC mill driving software) and B0CNC show it the same (wrong) way.

I can't seem to add files here, otherwise I'd post both the dxf and the nc file.
