Will Vcarve 9 do 2 rail sweep?

Postby laheyth » Fri Nov 17, 2017 3:49 am

I have seen the video about 2 rail sweep, but it appears to be for Aspire.
I am trying to figure out how to carve a LH and RH mirror image of the internals for this part to make a core for reproduction
Then I wish to do similar for the outside in order to make a casting pattern
I can make a flange and glue it on to the mold halfs on my lathe...... that part is easy

The two rail sweep is an Aspire feature.

With what you're trying to do I'd look at a true 3D modeling app such as Fusion 360 to model the 3D part then import the saved STL file into VCP for machining.
