Re: Delete layer not component

You cant delete layers they are always there. Once you move everything on that layer to a different layer than it will be empty and not show up in the layers tab in the manager unless you manually inserted the layer into the manager

Re: How to put the part into CNC in the right way

There are multiple ways to get data to your CNC from TopSolid wood.
1.) TopSolid wood CAM module: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWW99-9D6x8
2.) Machining export: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7Nri-IzVDI
3.) the way your currently doing it witch is much longer than the above two

Re: Hatch material

few possible scenarios.
  • the hatch is forced from the draft.
  • the hatch is not correct or was changed in material lib (to fix just remove and re-apply).
  • try use define part instead of multiple there was a bug in multiple in the past versions

Re: How to add a Clear Coat or No Finishing to Edges

I think you will want to try using generic code to do this. that way it will pull from the part definition for that data instead of the edge or panel function
