Save to import into V-Carve 8

Postby ericf1983 » Mon Oct 24, 2016 1:13 pm

Hi everyone,
Newbie question here....... Not sure what I'm missing here but how do you save the photo v-carve toolpaths to be imported into V-Carve?
Can't seem to find one that's compatible.

It's not the toolpaths that you import it's the .pvc file itself and then VCarve will use the toolpaths from within that itself.

Adrian, you came to my rescue again :)
Looks like the Save As option is disabled in the trial version but that was a good tutorial

Thanks!
Eric

You can save one of the samples that comes with PhotoVCarve and then import that if you want to try it out.
