I've been using MeshCAM for about a month. I'm pretty familiar with the concept of toolpaths and how to set them up properly. My question is related to the axis used for 2-sided machining.
I was looking in the help file for MeshCAM, and it says I can only using the x-axis as the flipping axis for 2-sided machining. In other words, once I have finished cutting the first side, I need to flip my stock along the x-axis. However, I have my machine setup to flip along the y-axis, but, there is no option to change the axis used to flip the material. I guess I could swap the x and y-axis outputs on my controller box, or re-setup my table to allow my stock to flip along the x-axis, but, I really like having the long part of the table (y-axis) as my flipping point. Is there a work around for this that I have not discovered? Is it possible to add a feature to the software that allows me to choose the axis by which I flip my stock?
Any help that y'all could offer would be greatly appreciated. I have a lot of modelling experience using Rhino 3D (around 10 years), and I am not afraid to share my knowledge.
Thank you very much,
