CAM Tutorial Problem
Read 419 times

The CAM tutorial is extremely hard to read on screen or printed, this should be updated to a pdf file. It doesn't matter how I view it's a real hard to read the values and enter them into the Tool Setup.

After completing the 1st tutorial I've got a problem with the coordinates of the object position in relation to the 3D modelling view. It's offset and I'm not sure why, this part of the tutorial is easy to read, otherwise I followed it to the letter.

Any ideas?

Copy & Paste from CAM Topic: TIP: Space Units & Numeric Precision Setting  (Read 2656 times)
"When you set up a CAM file, I have a preset template just for my CAM projects, make sure that your space units on your drawing are set to "10" & in the "CAM Palette Options" set this to full precision. If this is not done there can be inconsistencies with what you have
drawn & the g-code output for the same part."

This may well be the issue that I've got but the set to "10" is unclear, whats that mean?

I also did notice that when in plan view that the grid is not visible at all when I zoom to extents in tcw 2016 32 bit, yet when I check in tcw 2016 64 bit it's ok?
