Whether or not one program *should* do something or not doesn't do anything for you right now. (and no program is perfect - not diggin' on CPP) So my point is, there is always more than one way to get a job done & until issues get resolved with one program, you can just as easily crank them out in another. I run a job shop & don't have time to wait for something to get fixed the way I want it...so I always have multiple options to push the work through. That's all...Good luck.

Well that makes sense albeit probably a little cumbersome using VCP to set each tool path on a 50 sheet nest? Unless there is some automated way of running it through?

My suggestions were for those on a shoestring budget because shops banging out 50 sheets in one go on a regular basis have the coin for real cabinet software. Everything has a price. Unfortunately it's either tough it out with the tools at hand or ante up. You know...just like everything else in life!

The Help file in any Vectric product is very good. Read it. Then go to YouTube and search there for the video on the subject. Now you'll know as much as anyone else on the subject, for the most part.
