drag knife toolpath error message

Postby ospreyjib » Tue Dec 27, 2016 2:36 am

I just received my Donek D2 drag knife and finished watching a video on cutting coroplast. My setting appear to be correct, but I get "Error creating toolpath". What am I doing wrong? Note I haven't edited my post processor yet, but I didn't think that should bring up error.??

There can be many reasons for that error so it's hard to see without seeing the actual file in question.

Try looking for crossovers, duplicates and tiny loops in the vectors for starters.
