I'm pretty new to V-carve, I don't even have a CNC machine yet. I figured that it was better to learn something about the software before ruining a bunch of wood. I'm learning by watching the videos...
I just haven't figure out how to do this. I draw a square box. Inside that box, I place a large box, on top of that I place a smaller box, and another on that, sort of forming a set of stairs. I join or group the boxes together, then I remove all the interior lines. I then select the large square and stairs, and use the pocket toolpath to leave me a raised platform in the center of the work. Lets say that is machine down to a 1/2 inch.
Now, this is my probem, I would like to put back some of the lines I deleted, but only deep enough to make them show up (.005?). I select the line I want to engrave, and V-carve tells me it is a open vector.
How do you do it, all I want to do is engrave a straight line, and tell the program to center the bit on that line. I'm sure it is something simple.
And on the subject of open vector, is there a way to get V-carve to show me where they are located?
Thank you in advance...
