Hi,

Jdc file fomat is specific to Jedicut. But you can cut any profiles you can find on the web, using dat or prf files format.
Do I answer the question ?

Thank you for the reply...but no you did not.
I am sure I am just missing something, but with any other file extension besides .jdc, CUT and CUT PREVIEW are grayed out as well as CYCLE OF CUT MANAGER.
The files I am talking about are the ones included with the program under the profile file.
This is the same way when I do a NEW PROFILE......
What an I missing?????
Thank you for the help.....

Hi !

You're missing nothing ! It's normal, when you open a profile with Jedicut, and not in a new cut, you can't just cut it, or configure cycle of cut.
My english is so bad...

Hello,

To work with Jedicut, you'll have to use profile. To cut a wing click on File > New > Wing Cut. After that, you need two profiles. click on buttons allowing you to open profile, and it's done ! You can cut your wing ! If you check "Symetrical cut" on the "Wing Cut" windows, you need only one profile.

You can download profile on the web, but if you know coordinates, you can create a new profile by clicking on File > New > Profile. Afer saving your profile, open it in a new "Wing Cut" window.

Yes I have a new Jedicut version but it's not ready to be set online. There are some bug correction, and a new interface to configure your parallel port. I have many other ideas !! But I need time...

O.K I'm with you so far...
Now more questions, LOL..
1: In the profile area,what is the ABOVE and BELOW for???

2:In the nprofile area,the X and Y area, are they to move the Aixis in millimeters??
What I am trying to do is make a simple routine to cut, say a 51mm(about 2 in.)thick block into 6mm sheets.
what I want it to do is go up 6.5 mm up (y) and 600 mm long(x),
up 6.5 mm(y), -600mm(x)
up 6.5 mm y, 600mm x
up 6.5 mm y, -600mm and so on to cut the block then go back to y 0,x 0.
how would this look in profile?? Everthing I have tried , looked funny(not what I wanted)
Thank you for you help.
I'll learn this yet.

Hi,

1 : In french we say "Extrado" and "Intrado". Try to enter profile coordinates, you will understand how Jedicut work. In "cycle of cut" configuration, Jedicut distinguish the two parts of the profile.

2 : When you enter coordinates, you can use the unit of your choice. It's not important.
You want to do a non usual cut :p To do that, create a profile with all that points coordinate in millimeters (to know all points, begin drawing your profile on a paper). After that create a new cut file with Jedicut, check "symetrical" option, open your profile, and in that case, you need to configure root size equal to 600mm.

Thank you for the response.
Without Google language translater I'd be helpless here.
Correct me if I'm wrong...
Example of profile would be..
X 0,Y 0 (my starting point)
X 0, Y 6.5(to go up 6.5 mm)
X 1, Y 6.5(move 1 mm across, maintaining 6.5 mm up)
X 2, Y 6.5
X 3, Y 6.5 and so on and so on to go, and stay 6.5 mm up (y)and 600 mm across (x).
If I am not right please correct as I am trying to understand.
Speaking of which google and other would not translate " Extrado " and " Intrado", what exactly do they mean???
You wrote:
"2 : When you enter coordinates, you can use the uni of your choice."
Whats " UNI"
Thank you so much for the help.
At this rate I'm going to write a english help file smiling smiley.

Hi,

You don't need profile for your sample of cutting, because it's just an horizontal movement. What don't you understand ? What do you want to cut ?
I'm sorry but I can't answer to your question about "Cut prewiew" bug without more details (what cutting project, what profiles...).

In your Jedicut directory, you can see a Profils directory. It contain some example of dat files.

Actually its horizontal 600 mm, up 6.5mm, back 600, up 6.5....and so on
this it to cut 6 mm "sheets" of foam.

Hi,

To do this, try to configure a profile with that coordinates :
0 0
600 0
600 6.5
0 6.5
0 13
600 13
600 19.5
0 19.5
...

Do you understand ?

Thank you for the help..will give it a go tomorrow(it's 11:33 pm now)

It's still daylight out.........smiling smiley
Re: How to get profiles,.dat file extentions to cut
July 12, 2006 09:10AM
IT WORKED!!! yea.
Thank you Jerome!!!
I kept tring to say -600mm ,Jedicut did not like it very much, now I understand.
Still had an issue but was able to work around it..
I tried check symetrical, without loading the file in the WING tip area, which resulted in a "can't calculate points" error, once I loaded the same file in the wing tip, it worked smiling smiley.

In the percent window in the wing tip area(usually at 100%) the 1 is covered by a grey box/block.
do not know why??
Once agian Jerome, thank you!

its 11:09 PM and its still daylight smiling smiley
Re: How to get profiles,.dat file extentions to cut

Woooow !! It's cool smiling smiley

I will test the problem you enconter with "symetrical" check box. To answer to your question, when you check symetrical, you indicate to Jedicut that your wing tip profile and all other caracteristics of the wing tip are identical to wing root profile.

Good night :p
