Does the VCarve pro update 10 make this program obsolete?

Postby loopacrylics » Fri Nov 22, 2019 9:20 pm

Hello everyone thanks for taking the time to read my question.
I've really liked what this software does. I've played with it for a while and decided since it wasn't so expensive I may as well break down and get it. However their has recently been an update to Vcarve pro which adds "Photo VCarving Toolpath Strategy." Since I already have the software I was curious if Photo Vcarve is even worth getting or if this new update to Vcarve Pro made it completely obsolete?

The one thing that the photovcarve toolpath in VCarve can't do is toolpaths that use anything other than a v-bit.

Has anyone inquired as to why there is the change? Or if there is a work around?I thought I was losing my mind when I was trying to add a ballnose cutter to the photovcarve toolpath.

It isn't a change. The photovcarve toolpath in VCarve has never supported anything other than a v-bit.

See this thread - viewtopic.php?f=7&t=32869 - I suspect Xxray is right.
