Corner / Radius Utility

Postby jalessi » Thu Aug 16, 2018 12:58 am

I am not sure if this already exists in any of the Vectric software however it would be awesome if is there a tool that would examine a vector and automatically adjust all corners for a specific radius, let's say the smallest tool is on hand is .250 and it needs to fit precisely into a corner or radius. The utility would need to check every corner or radius and make a adjustment so that all radius in the vector are at least the corresponding size or larger.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Method #2

Select all vectors
Offset OUTWARD by the RADIUS of the bit
Offset INWARD by the DIAMETER of the bit
Offset OUTWARD by the RADIUS of the bit
