Tip of the Week • Storing Multiple Origins

Multiple origins can be stored for running files on your Techno LC, HD, HDS Routers and Plasma Cutters.

This can come in handy if you use a fixture on the table or even if you use a few different sized materials.

Tip of the Week • Skip Function

  —   LC Equipment Users
Did you Know?

To use the “skip” function, first start your file like normal. Once the file is started, pause it and then hit “skip”. It will ask what percent you want to skip to.

You can’t skip backwards, so if you’re not sure, start a few percent early. You can always skip again. Unfortunately, there really isn’t an accurate way to figure out what percent you need, but sometimes what we do is use the previewer to get a better guess.

The previewer has a progress bar along the bottom as the file is drawn. You can watch it draw slowly and get a better idea of what percent you want to pick up at.

We hope this helps.
