I'm making a simple plaque for a friend. It is intended to be 19mm thick, VCarved text with a 3D border cut out.
The border was made with a 2 rail sweep which I've done before; the border will be raised with the surface of the plaque flat / lowered.
The problem I'm encountering is the projected depth of cut. The 3D border is showing up as a max cut depth of 10.16mm for the roughing pass, and 18.522mm depth for the finish pass. I can't figure out why this is projected to cut so deep; the 2 rail sweep vector is only 2.138 mm tall. My goal is to have the border 2-4 mm taller than the flat surface that I will VCarve - so the plaque is roughly 15-16mm thick when done.
I've played with the component base heights and shape heights; pulling my hair out and I'm sure I'm doing something stupid, just can't figure it out. Can someone help?
I've linked the file here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jjrcvuz1c9877 ... crv3d?dl=0
(hopefully that works).
Thanks in advance!
