Spiral Pattern

Circular Pattern perforated type is only available on Image2Punch Pro and Genesis. There are two option groups in generating spiral pattern. First is circular coverage and Rectangular coverage, which is similar to the option given for circular pattern. When Circular coverage is selected to generate the pattern, the result will be in circular shape inside the sheet outline. However, if the rectangular coverage is selected, the perforated pattern will be in rectangular shape.

Second is Incremental Angle Factor which will give a significant pattern result in generating the perforated pattern. The range is from 0.01 to 100, where 0,01 will be considered as the least gap accurate gap clearance, then generate the minimum Toolhits. And 100 is considered as the most accurate gap clearance, then generate the maximum Toolhits.

However a selection between 0.01 up to 1 is considered as “unstable pattern generation”, which give a significant result for any little change as small as 0.01.
