Does editnci still exist in X2? I want to scale a toolpath. Transform toolpath doesn't have a scale option that I can see.

 

Thanks,

Patrik

What I want is to scale toolpaths, not geometry. With the editnci chook, you had that ability. I can't find where to scale a toolpath in X2.

 

Thanks,

The V9 chook edit NCI did not make the cut to X2

Still would like to know if there is any way to scale a toolpath in X2. Sometimes, because of the complexity of the geometry, scaling it, re-selecting the geometry you need and then regenerating it can be a real hassle. If you can scale the toolpath itself, it takes care of all of these problems.

 

So if anyone knows of a way to scale a toolpath in X2, I would love to know.

 

Thanks,

Patrik

You can scale the geometry and regen there should be no need to reselect anything. You could use a G Code editor, like Cimco edit and using the math functions scale the G Code file as an alternative
