Chris, I have attempted to follow your instructions to add tape splitting support to the CNCShark-USB arc pp supplied with my Vectric software. Will this work?

Re: Splitting rougin toolpaths using different bits?

All, in Aspire can I reduce the overall length of a single machine run in 3D carving by running multiple roughing toolpaths with progressively finer bits, e.g. run the first roughin toolpath with a 1/2" end mill, then a second roughin toolpath with a 1/8" ball nose bit? I have tried this but it seems to me that aspire does not remember the profile of the first roughin cut when doing the second roughin cut?

I hope one of the Vectric experts will provide guidance on this?
