Seems a pretty fast feed rate for a Shark type machine.

I agree, but I was not told which CNC manufacturer. I run a Maverick, which I would turn up to 300ipm, the sweet spot.

I made a much simpler tray, or 16 simpler trays.

Hi I just bought a new piranha CNC fx and I did opt for the laser attachment. However, other than the booklet that comes with the laser I'm not finding much support videos for the laser. I know it is capable of actually creating a laser photo quality sketch. Any info on creating vectors for the uploaded photo or design would be awesome. Thanks, Jon

I am new to cnc, have done several carves using easel, but would like to learn to download files and import into vcarve, learn how to carve them.

I am using vcarve pro and when I design a part to be cut out, occasionally it will cut 1 line on the inside of the line and then the next line is on the outside.
How do I fix that?

The vectors are open. If they're meant to be closed then you can use the join tools to close them. If they are meant to be open then you can change the start node on the vectors that are cutting the other side or create two toolpaths with one inside and one outside.
