UGM Bundle

I have purchased the UGM bundle. I do not see the 2D Vectors
We have included Beki's collection of 20 2D vector designs some of which are shown above.
Does anyone know what folder they are in.

Thank You
Don

Re: A little something

What I was referring to was the small edge Vee around the profile. Perhaps this was intentional? Not trying to be picky; just interested. EdgeGroove.png You are not being picky. I appreciate your input. It was not intentional. This was a test so I could see what needs improving. On my next one a wi...

Re: Cutting lower then flat depth

Or to put it another way Don if you want to cut the text to exactly 0.125 deep then the vcarve toolpath is not the correct toolpath to use :lol: :lol: Is there a particular reason you want the text at that depth? Yes because I need the pocket and the text goes in the pocket. Thank you for your answ...

Re: Cutting lower then flat depth

I'm going to give this one more shot. If you had zero start depth and zero flat depth, I'd be willing to bet that your v-carve toolpath would only cut 0.0391" deep. This is controlled by the angle of your v-carve bit and the distance between the parts of the closed vector you are using to define th...

Re: Cutting lower then flat depth

I am sorry I did not state the settings correctly .Pocket depth .125 Start depth .125 Flat depth .250 even with these settings it is cutting the text at .1641. I thought I would get text cut to .125 depth. Don

Re: A little something

Ditto on what others have posted! I really thought you were somehow over-carving a cast piece. FYI, (not to take away from your art) that Vbit cut on-the-line around the perimeter could use a bit of offset to the outside (or the point is broken). I noticed because that started happening to my cuts....

Cutting lower then flat depth

I am working on a project. I cut out a pocket to a depth of .125. I then want to Vcarve some text in the pocket. If I set the Start at .125 and use the Vcarve and no flat it cuts to .1641. I want to carve the text to a depth of .125. So I set a flat depth of .125 run the TP and it still cuts the tex...
