Turned ProFile Gadget

Postby barthowtala » Fri May 18, 2018 2:59 pm

Hi all, I have no idea what Im doing with VCarve Pro. We bought a Laguna Turner 60" to make some pretty simple round parts on. As a mechanical engineer, I do everything in solidworks or inventor. I can draw round things in a couple of minutes. So I created my part and exported an .STL file. I figured the best gadget to turn round parts is the Turned Profile Gadget. Whenever I select it though I keep getting the error "For a wrapped job with the cylinder along X (wrapping Y values) The cross section must start and end with the vertical legs starting at the same y values.

Im positive I drew the part symmetrically. Is it an issue with importing? Ive tried some tutorials but still have no idea what Im doing here.
