Software version: 





Set this advanced option to a value between 0.3 and 1.0 if you get the following warning in the dstv_nc.log file for some NC files:

Error: Can't find intersection between solid and nc plane. Please try to adjust XS_CNC_CUT_PLANE_HEIGHT (0.3 .. 1.0)

You may get these warnings when you try to create NC files for folded parts. These NC files are not correct. For example, the external contours of the part may be entirely missing from the NC filefile that contains information gathered from a model and exported to computer numerical controlled fabrication machinery

Tekla Structures produces NC files in several formats, for example, DSTV.

. You will notice this, if you view a DXF file created from the NC file.

To use this advanced option, follow these steps:

  1. Set this advanced option using a value bigger than 0.3. Start with smaller values first. The internal default value is 0.3.

  2. Create the NC files for the problematic part.

  3. Check the file dstv_nc.log , and if there is still warning for this part, repeat steps 1 to 4 with another value.

  4. After creating the NC files without any error messages in the dstv_nc.log , remove the advanced option from the user.ini file as this advanced option may cause problems for some other parts.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).
