Open Vectors (especially when using V-Carve/Engraving Toolpath)
1.) note the first image we have two lines (zoom in on big circle to see second line), two circles, and a square.
2.) an error message appears when trying to create this Toolpath on all vectors shown here (note second image).
***Note: when using the V-Carve/Engraving Toolpath all vectors must be closed vectors otherwise use a Profile Toolpath.
3.) Even though the big circle looks like a closed vector it is not because I deliberately cut a node on that circle so
therefore it is an open vector. It is not until you check for open vectors (right click a vector or group of vectors and
select 'Selection/Select All Open Vectors' or zoom in to find them).
4.) Also a vector (line) is not readily seen unless you zoom in real tight on the big circle center. Stray vectors can
occur from time to time that is why it is important to select all vectors then right click and select 'Selection/Select
All Open Vectors' and you will have to zoom in tight to find those stray vectors or just deselect the ones that are visible
holding shift key down once you get all the visible ones release shift key then hit delete on the keyboard that will eliminate
the stray vectors that you cannot see unless you zoom in.
This is a brief explanation as to why the open vectors pop-up occurs when trying to create the V-Carve/Engraving Toolpath.
