We’re working with multiple manufacturers that use AlphaCam. We do a lot of plywood with boreholes in. Both through the boards, and horizontally in through the edges.
Here is a toy example:
The problem is, we have never been successful in exporting directly to AlphaCam. There are always issues: the bore holes are never “aligned” perfectly to the world axis, so AlphaCam gives up, and tells the operator it’s impossible. They claim it’s a precision issue so I attempted to increase precision (Abs. Tol: 0.0000001mm), and carefully create a dummy scene straight_cylinders.3dm (3.7 MB) , but even then they say it doesn’t work. We’re exporting to STEP.
It only works if brought in through a 3rd party program (SpaceClaim).
Has anyone successfully exported directly to AlphaCam? What are we doing wrong?
