0.001 mm or 0.003 pt line setting for laser and milling

Recommended Posts

I miss the function 0.001 mm or 0.003 pt line setting for laser and mill-chut/mill.

In Affinity Designer 1.4.1. is just a line with 0,1 pt possible.

It would be great to have this function to use in svg and eps...
We have a huge community of creative crafters, who loves
pinterest and using laser and milling.
Lovely greetings from Germany – Berlin.

Hi DAD, this should be possible, you can enter the very small values and they will be applied. To see that level of accuracy in the Stroke/Transform panels you can adjust the number of decimal places in Preferences > User Interface.

BTW:

 

The decimal separator in the context toolbar is wrong. DAD has a German UI.

 

0.003 mm/pt in the stroke panel is displayed as 0 mm/pt in the context toolbar. 

 

 

Can we hope of improvements?

Is that a bug, Oval?  Can we hope you put it in the Bugs category then?

Is that a rhetorical question, Ben? :P

Normally users don’t know the concept. We cannot know if it is a bug / by design.  :(

Then why mention it at all, Oval?

 

If you think it is a bug, put it in the Bugs category in a new thread.  Don't just mention it in the middle of another Question thread about a different matter.  That's how things that are real bugs get missed, and then you tell us that we have ignored you reporting a bug!

Thanks for your attention and answers!

I think, such accuracy in the Stroke would be perfect for Affinity Designer
because the greatness of the zoom tool can 
support this kind of workflow easily.
And the results in laser cut and milling would bring Affinity Designer on the next level
to produce something in 3D with different materials (like paper, wood and glas and metal and so on)

It would be great to put it in Bugs category. Please do so...

DAD I think maybe you've misunderstood what the discussed bug is.... the bug is a minor thing, that the Context toolbar shows a Punkt for the decimal point instead of a Komma for your German-language UI.

 

As far as using thin lines is concerned, it should work fine. Just type in the values you want. It should already be next-level!

 

Best wishes.
