Working in VCarve

Working in VCarve

Postby ljs935 » Thu Jul 16, 2015 4:23 pm

Working in VCarve Pro I imported a 3D model onto my work surface. When I move the model to where I want it on the work surface and preview the toolpaths, the model is shown in the original position that it was in when imported, not at the position I had moved it to. Is there something I'm missing?

Did you recalculate the tool path?

Are you importing an actual 3D model (STL, V3M, SKP etc) or a calculated toolpath file from Cut3D or Vector Art Machinist?

I see that using the actual 3d model it works fine. The question still remains the same when imported from Vector Art machinist or Cut3d, it doesn't seem to work. Any solutions.
