Turned Profile Gadget

Postby Hamp3007 » Sun Apr 26, 2015 11:25 am

On my machine the "Y" axis is vertical (or along the longitudinal axis of the machine) and the "X" is horizontal.


Help, I'm striking out. I am trying to do a simple turned profile and I am striking out. Below is the error I get. Also attached is the file I set up to do it.
If anyone can help me with this one I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
Hamp Stevens

Error Message:


"The Selected Vector is Unsuitable".

"For a wrapped job with the cylinder along Y (wrapping X values)

The cross section must start and end with horizontal legs starting at the same X value"




Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Hamp,

I don't have an answer for you unfortunately, but I am experiencing the same issue and haven't been able to figure out.
I have the vertical legs starting at same y value error due to my orientation.

Hi,

The cross-section for the turned profile gadget MUST be an open vector, the vector in the attached file is closed with a line between the 'legs'. Removing the line will allow the cross-section to be used.

Ok I see what I was doing wrong. I was off slightly in x to y from 1 leg to the other leg. I need to configure my snap options better or type in the values for my form.


Thanks,

Stan

To make sure they are lined up exactly you can go into node edit mode (press N). Select the nodes at the end of each leg (drag select or shift-mouse button) and press the Y key to line them up on the same Y co-ordinate. The same thing works with X.

Same problem here. Can't get past that error message, after many tries & reading the docs several times.

Drew a straight line across the artwork, then clipped the ends off, so the ends should be the same height. Also downloaded the file above that did not work, and tried it, modified it as suggeted, couldn't make that work either.

Would someone please post an example of a very simple Vcarve file that does work with this gadget?

TIA

I used the Rotary Machining 2D/2.5D tutorial when I made a turning. it's here: http://support.vectric.com/tutorials/V8 ... Index.html . Just be sure to turn the design 90deg for wrapping the X axis.

Greetings All,

I am having exactly the same problem with V9. The profile is very simple curves. I made sure that both vertical line started at the same y value (0) by pressing y in the node edit mode. I still get the error that the vertical ends must start at the same y value. Please help.

I am using v carve 8.5 and trying to get the turn profile to work and am getting the same error about the two vertical lines must start at the same Y value. I have attached the file. I do not know what I am doing wrong?
Thanks,

Your vector isn't a single vector it's three separate ones that have been grouped. You need to ungroup it and then use one of the join vector tools to make it into one vector.

Can you post the file here? Can't help much if we don't see the actual file.

In the meantime...What version of the software are you running? Is your gadget up to date with your software?

The Wrapped Job Setup gadget (the first one you run in the sequence) works differently to most other gadgets in that it must be run with nothing, not even a blank job, loaded. Start VCarve/Aspire and make sure that you're seeing the start up screen which is grey with the Vectric Logo in the middle of it. If you've got a white screen then go to the File menu and choose Close.

Now you can go to the Gadgets menu (in the start up mode there should only be the File, Gadgets and Help menus showing) and choose Wrapped Job Setup and you should be good to go from there.
