I have a drawing that i completed and now im adding to it with more shapes. The new shapes are blue. The original drawing is in green. How do I get both to be blue before I generate the NC code?This might seem like a simple question, but im still having issues with understanding the conventions. Thanks

Spot on Jason! The Green lines usually represent pathed entities. So Deleting the Path will change them back to their blue (geometry).

Also if you just applied the pathing, you can also use the UNDO Button to rollback the last action (in this case Pathing).

Hope that helps!

Its OK, I worked it out.. green are pathed entities, so I delete all paths and Im good to go!

Yes very helpful thanks.. so i guess its a good idea to save under a new name just before pathing so that i can go back to that point if i want to use modify that design in the future. Or just get in the habit of not moving or changing anything while in pathed format.

Hi Jason, You can certainly do that, but you can always remove paths as you did earlier, make your changes, then add the paths back on. Both are solid paths however, just whatever will suit you better!
