Re: FLAKEY PROGRAM

Sorry . . . . . . I'm using 5.157 but the problem started with 5.156

I use a mouse for all my layouts.

Snap to grid is not on. But under Snap Options it was turned on. (I turned it off. But made no difference)

Tablet was not selected.

Dear Santa . . . . .

Would it be possible to "easily" manipulate the tool path on a completed project. When I actually run the program my router runs all over the project instead of going from top to bottom or left to right. Seems to waste a lot of time moving from on area to another. I believe when I used to use ENROUT...

Job Sheet Question

I am running Aspire software on my Planet CNC controller. My question is this: When printing out the Job Sheet, the time required to do a project isn't even close. It takes almost twice as long to do some projects. I do set the bit speed in both your tool setup and the Planet CNC software but again,...

JOB TIMING

When I create a Job Sheet for a project, the actual cutting time is not even close. I do put the cutting inches per minute in the tool database but for whatever reason the actual cutting time is way off. I am using a Planet CNC controller . Is there something else I need to setup?? Thanks in advance...

Engrave on 3-D work

I hope I'm asking this properly. Can I use the "Engrave" tool on top of a 3-D model?
As an example: If I made a half globe, could I put the latitude and longitude lines on it with the engraving tool??

Reverse Engineering Question

My drive that I put all my CRV files on died! I know shame on me for not backing up.
My question is . . . . . . . Is there a way to recreate these CRV files using the Tool Path files?
Any help would be appreciated.

VCarve Pro & Planet CNC Controller

I have been a happy user of VCarve Pro for several years now. My cnc is a MultiCam, (25 years old), When doing carving I have always used the "PLT" file extension with great success. Recently I change my processor to a Planet CNC MK3/4 processor. My question is, what is the best file type & extensio...

PLT vs G Code

I have a MultiCam 22 Plus CNC Router. For years I have been saving my machine code in the "PLT" format. It's time to update my MultiCam. Basically, I'm replacing the controller board and several other components with a Planet CNC controller. My question is, which file format is better, if any, G Cod...
