View Full Version : Loops in the SBP file after export

10-17-2001, 06:39 PM
I have been doing alot of editing on my SBP files after exporting them from Vector 9. They look fine while in Vector but when I view them in the preview screen there are complete circles where there should not be. These are "CG" commands in the SBP file.
(Note: it also cuts these loops if you do not edit them out)

Any body else seen this and How do i correct it.

I have run into this problem several times, Mostly when running ellipses. About 2 weeks ago I downloaded the current shopbot operating software from shopbot. Installed the update and made the changes in Vector per the installation instructions. I have run several ellipses and ovals since the update with no editing of the .sbp file and no loops.
Works Great!!

Shopbot recommends a 6 digit accuracy setting (special options units). I have still had this happen though. If in preview you see a circle all you need to do is change break interpolate which will change the cgs to moves.
What happens is that the starting point and the ending point are the same and shopbot sees that as a circle instead of a tiny arc.

It seems to be a problem with offsets and with the horizontal pocketing routine. Shopbot is aware of the problems and seeing what can be done.

Thanks for the help. I have not had time to try anything yet.. Christmas orders are keeping me cutting all and into the night.
