The legacy importer included an option to support importing groups of parts in a DXF as they were drawn so that the nesting would treat them as a single part. You should add this functionality to the modern importer.
Is there any way to access the legacy importer with the new version 5.1 software? I can't seem to find an option and my pre version 5 software (and thus the legacy importer) will no longer work.
Yes. You can choose which importer to use from the Preferences link at the top right of the MyNesting window.
I can declare temporary blindness! Thanks for helping me find the right place to click!!! I only need the legacy importer on the off chance I want to import a group, otherwise the modern importer has been great!
Thanks Julian. Glad I could point you in the right direction!
We will be adding the groups feature to the modern importer soon.
