NC files from round tubes with incorrect values


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.
