  • Custom cavity

    Hi,

    I'd like to create a cavity with an arbitrary shape. I see that you can create circles, rectangles, circles-in-rectangles, etc. I'd like to import a dxf and use that as the cavity. This obvious feature appears missing from the software.

    I searched on the forum and found one Customer Service Rep who said it can be done, here:

    https://www.frontpanelexpress.com/support/forum/?tx_wecdiscussion%5Bsingle%5D=308

    ...but there are no details about how to import dxf and "specify it should be a cavity". Do we import dxf as a cutout and then specify in the notes section when we order that that should be a cavity instead of a cutout? If so, how do we tell the human operator which cutout we are talking about (if there are several)?

    Thanks,
    David

    Hello David,

    When you click on the 'insert free contour' tool in the toolbar the popup window will give you the option to mill as cavity. Just check the 'as cavity' option in the popup window and then you can set the depth of the cavity.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.
