DXF into VRMilling adds extra lines

Post by oyoung » Mon 10 Jul , 2017 15:43 pm

Hello, I am generating a toolpath using a DXF straight into VRMilling. However, when I switch from screen 1 to screen 2 some extra lines are added which we do not want to cut! Can you help us? (Please view attached images; the second screen is above the first screen)

The problem is that the design drawing is incorrect and the vector is not closed so the software closes it automatically Check your design and make sure there are no overlapping lines. Select all the lines and join them together.
