Title: line types
Post by: beagle on May 15, 2017, 03:07:46 AM
Line type.

Before, during, after TC-ProV10. I was forgotten to install my European line styleís

Based on a Din norm ---> a hidden line is 3mm. long with a space of 1mm. and a Center line  7mm. long, space 1mm. line 1mm. and space 1 mm.

According to these two specís I have also changed the other line description.
And so I obtain now these line types. see print screen attached.

but I also found a bug.
If you declare in the CADD.LIN file

CUTTING,________ _ _ ________ _ _ ________ _ _ ________ _ _ ________ _ _
A,.190,-.040,.070,-.040,.070,-.0.40

But you got only one long line , a space and one short line. Not the two small lines.
See the print screen  and the CADD file

There is an error in your line definition. It should be:

A,.190,-.040,.070,-.040,.070,-.040  Your last space is defined as -.0.40 is in error.

Enjoy
