We just switched over to EnRoute 5.1 from AXYZ Toolpath so I am learning how to do things all over again. Right now I can't figure out how to fully manually set ordering. I have an aluminum sheet with multiple inside cuts and it treats the whole thing as one object and picks the order of the inside cuts automatically, so outer parts of letters are being cut before centers.

here's a screenshot

Is there a way I can pick each individual shape in the order I want?
Thanks

What will want to do is when you output you can click on
the Object order buttona dn select inside out and that
should work.

Thanks, but I want to pick the order before I output to TAP, no? I can't set the order at the router or anything.

I just tried setting the Object Order under preferences to Inside Out and ran the 2D Simulation again and it mostly works (albeit all over the place, back and forth from the far ends of the piece), but completely ignores the centre of the 'R' in the Registered Trademark

Am I not able to set it so it treats the centers as their own shape and order each shape independently of each other?

I've found it's more acurate to select all your inside paths and TP them as an internal offset and then select the outline and toolpath it seperately.  then you can use the machining > order ... command and order them by hand.  When you put a router offset on an set of object that have both outside and inside cuts it groups them all together as one toolpath group.
