Line number sequences

Line number sequences

Line number sequences

Hi, I am trying to code a drawing that have about 8,500 small holes (part size 17”x17”). I use the MetaCam software. The laser is Mitsubishi 3015-40LPV. In the stimulation mode on the laser screen, an error will occur if the line number N is greater than N99990. I want to omit the line number sequences when coding but no option to omit. Is there a way to solve this problem besides of dividing the drawing to smaller section then coding to keep line number sequences below 99990?

RE: Line number sequences

There is an option in the MetaCAM post to omit line sequence numbers. When you get ready to generate the NC a window will pop up with options. Also, the NC Code may be too large for the CNC to handle(LV Series had a 1 Mb capacity). I can help if you wish to share your DXF file and generate a program for you with no sequence numbers. beamout@gmail.com

RE: Line number sequences

When generating the NC file, a window pops up but no option to omit the line number sequences. It’s ok. We will divide the drawing to sections then code. Thanks

RE: Line number sequences

I found the option to omit line number sequences.
