I noticed a problem with NC files created from round tubes with holes dirlled in them.
This is what element looks like in the model:
And this is what I get in NC data:
The holes position (red marking) suggests, that these are dimensions after unwrapping the round tube to plate. However, header (violet) describes this part as a round tube.
The result is, that CNC machine displays the element as a round tube and applies the holes according to "unwrapped" dimensions.
I think, either the holes need to be dimensioned as for the round tube (not unwrapped) or the header need to be set as "B" for plates (but then I think the whole profile name should be renamed as for plate).
How to fix this issue?
We need proper NC files for round tubes with holes in them.

I don't understand your point. What you means DEFECT? In normally if software have issues ,it should be repir by update. Right now, who will be responsibility for this "defect"? What happen when manufacter made all pipes with wrong holes?? We pay every year 15000$ for SELECT and what?
Maybe will be good, when we send you my models and you will prepare for us NC files. Right now, when the manufactuer must read every information from the drawings, wants more money. If the Benley company doesyn't repair the issues , software should be remove from the market.If that DEFECT will be on one pipe it OK, but we have hundreds of meters of catwalks handrails with that connections.
Tell me if I wrong
Can you please advise which version of PS can be use so that NC file is defect free?
