Hi

I am trying to cut out a spanner which has a hexagon on the inside and a circle on the outside , l have made the drawing on autocad and moved to fastcam and cadclean the problem is when inserting the starting point there not an option for starting the cut from the inside of the hexagon which defeats the purpose and makes a mess of the spanner

Hi Noel,

So the problem is the initial pierce point? Does this mean you want to Move the entry? Or do you mean you want to change the origin of the drawing?

If you need to move the entry, you can move entry using this:

/gMgAAAABJRU5ErkJggg==


However, if it is for moving the origin of the output, you should use the RAPID AT THE START option, which can be turned on

Hi Alex

Thank you for your reply the problem l seem to have is , if l am cutting a ring the cut starts on inside and when complete the inside piece drops out next pierce is on the outside and the ring drops out but when that is tried cutting a hexagon l do not have the option of piercing from inside the hexagon , anything else that is being cut with Fastcam gives one the option of starting the cut from the inside or the outside , but not with a hexagon
