Exporting a selected toolpath problem

Post by RobB » Sat May 22, 2021 1:44 pm

Attached is a drawing with 3 toolpaths; the second and third path are of a selected part of the drawing.
Exporting the first selected toolpath (inside circle) works, and creates a readable file.
After that, exporting a selected toolpath (and setting a new name in the CAM configuration) runs the datacollection process as visible above the command line, but creates either an empty .nc file or only a few G-code lines.

A workaround is copying the drawing and deleting the other toolpaths from it.
