Any 3d rotary figures with success?

Postby jaru-eri » Mon Feb 25, 2019 7:44 pm

Are there anybody here who have finished a 3d figure with v-carve pro? I need to know a bit more about the settings before I try this option at my own.

Create a rotary job
Import the 3D file (probably an STL). Note that Vectric products won't machine below the centerline of the cylinder.
Create the 3D roughing toolpath
Create the 3D finishing toolpath
Save your toolpaths
Run the toolpaths
