Flipping Toolpaths

Postby mezalick » Fri Aug 16, 2019 9:47 am

Gretings All,
A quick question ..
Is there a way, in the Vectric software to fill a toolpath, or several tool paths, let's say 180 degrees?
I can't see a way of doing it.
Thanks,
Michael

Not directly with toolpaths AFAIK but you can flip/rotate the vectors and use the recalculate all button if you have the toolpaths setup with vector association.

I usually copy the tool path, copy the vectors to a new layer, select all or the ones I want, shift H or shift V, recalculate copied tool path.
