profile Toolpaths

Postby lavon » Mon Jan 20, 2020 8:18 pm

I have a project that's completely set up and ready to cut. Except now I need to know how to make a profile tool path to cut around a "wavy, not straight" perimeter.
Please give me the steps to do this
Thanks

Create a "wavy, not straight" closed vector around the area you want to cut out, with the close vector selected and use the Profile Toolpath....

A picture or more information might help....

Since that's 3D, then use the "Create Vector Boundary Around Selected Components". It'll create a closed vector that you can use for profile cutout.

You might want to take a look at the tutorial videos, plenty of examples of how to draw lines, arcs, all that good stuff.

Asking someone to tutor you in a forum is a bit much, yanno? We love to help someone if they have a particular issue, more general stuff like you are asking has already been addressed in the videos. Hopefully someone will come along who has a couple of good vids to point you at.
