Stripper Machine Settings - Front Edge Upper
Output to layer
The geometry created by the tool can be transferred to another layer by checking this option and from the pulldown selecting the layer, or by typing a standard layer name into this field.
Output to sub-blocks
Determines if the new geometry will be added to sub-blocks of the specified name.
If checked, a copy of the original front edge path will be copied to the same destination as the new geometry.
Enter the distance to offset from the original geometry.
This option determines it unrounded corners on the original geometry will have a radius added to the new geometry when the offset increases the size of the entity. If checked, no radius will be added.
From the pulldown list choose the palette for the front edge profiles.
Use laser offsets
To add the laser beam allowance to the front edge profile check this option and add the Beam width.
Enter the distance from the last cut type entity of the side and off lay to the extents of the front edge.
Enter the depth of the front edge.
This option will add a centreline notch or line to the grip of the perimeter.
From the pulldown list choose the palette for the centre notch.
Enter the width of the centre notch. If this distance is set to 0, then only a centre line is added. Otherwise, if laser offsets are being used, then the actual width of the centre notch will be smaller (by the beam width).
Enter the height of the centre notch. If laser offsets are being used, then the actual height of the centre notch will be smaller (by half the beam width), unless only a centre line has been added. If a negative value is entered here then the notch direction will be reversed; i.e. it will be on the outside of the stripping board.
Enter the distance the centre notch will be offset from the centre of the design extents.
You can specify parameters for the notch corners here. The Near Type refers to the corners on the edge where the notch is anchored. The Far Type refers to the corners within the notch.
From the pulldown select Square, Fillet or Chamfer. If you select Fillet you will then be able to enter the fillet Radius; if you select Chamfer you will be able to enter the chamfer Length.
Similarly, select Square, Fillet or Chamfer for the other corners.
