OneCNCXR7 Update 50.90

We are releasing today OneCNCXR7 Update Version 50.90

In this version there are quite a few changes.

OneCNC Help File

In the English Version there is a new updated help file now included in the install.
This updated help file also includes information about the new OneCNCXR7 Tool File and Lathe Holder system.

OneCNC Font Attributes.

OneCNC font attributes of Bold and Italic These can now be selected on the fonts that actually have this ability.

If you click on the font in the dialog and the Bold and or Italic become not greyed out this means that you can select these attributes if required.

Chain Text

Chain text was not previously available with line fonts. In this release they are now available.

Leader Arrow Text

The setting of angled font previously cause a detour of the leader and this has been changed in this release.

DXF DWG Export/Import

It was found certain Unicode fonts were not exporting correctly and when imported to other CAD or back into OneCNC the text was not valid. Some of the symbols like diameter symbol were also a problem. In other cases import was not available These have been corrected in this version so import/export should be good now.. 

It should also be remembered that if you are sending DWG or DXF files to other parties for import into their CAD you need to make sure that your settings are suitable. Arrow heads should be not closed type and should be just the open line style to be seen in all other CAD. Users need to use the Windows fonts that are available as a standard install so that other users with CAD in Windows can also read them.

If users prefer to send the better looking dimensions that are capable in OneCNC we suggest they send as a PDF document.

Solidworks 2017

Solidworks 2017 is now released but OneCNCXR7 does not as yet import 2017 files. Files from Solidworks 2017 need to be saved as an earlier version or imported as a STEP file or other until it is available.
