    Please tell us what "Fadal Digitizing Software" is and does. I'm not familiar with that name but I ran Fadal's in the 90s and I was able to "backup" some Fadal software. I just may have it.

    Area Rough - Stay away from the inside

    Create an outer boundary and an inner boundary. Outer boundary should be self explanatory and the inner boundary will be the area that you want to avoid.

    Curving text on a radius

    It takes some playing with to get your spacing right, but in the Create Letters dialog box, check Top of Chain, then select the bottom arc when prompted.
  8. Our designers use Logopress (plugin/addon, whatever it's called) with SW when designing dies. I'm not sure if figuring overbend is part of what it does, but we use it for designing prog dies.

    Analyze distance setting problem

    Here's your problem. Check None instead of Lines.

    Analyze distance setting problem

    I certainly understand what a pain that would be. If they are points, which you say they are, then the display arc center points config setting won't do anything for you. Actual points are displayed differently than arc center points. See below. The one on the right is a point. Inside the circle is an arc center point.

    Then it's not locking the selection.

    In X9, you right click on the autocursor selection.

    Analyze distance setting problem

    I use X9 and I don't see this behavior when creating fillets or otherwise. Are you sure they're actual points? Click Screen-->Statistics. Does it list a certain number of points? If not, then they appear to be a graphical glitch. Try Screen-->Regenerate display list and see if that makes them disappear. If it does, then it's possibly a video card/display issue.

    NX to mastercam transition help please

    I've seen this before myself. Regenerate display list always fixed it. I'm still using X9, so it's probably in the same place as X7 -->Screen-Regenerate display list. Welcome to the forum!
