I often have this problem. I import vectors from Sketchup. In V Carve pro, I want to add some additional geometry (in this specific example, I imported wardrobe doors, and I need to add pockets for cup hinges at precise locations inset from the edge of the cupboard doors).
However, there does not seem to be a way to set a guideline from the edge of a part
, a rectangle in my case currently (according to this section of the manual, https://docs.vectric.com/docs/V9.0/VCar ... g-Snapping
Workarounds I have found are to add additional geometry on the part and delete it later, or to move each part to the origin 0,0, both of which are pretty tedious.
I can never get parts to snap to Guidelines, despite having "snap to guides" set on - I have an open support case with Vectric about this, not sure if it's a 9.5-related bug - but that'd be an acceptable solution (make a guideline near the edge of the part, then move the part to the guideline).
Any advice welcome.
