Re: Fonts

Not too sure what you mean by “import a font from Microsoft Office”. Any typeface available in a Microsoft Office program on your machine should be available to VCarve as they both use typefaces installed in Windows.

Re: Tool database

and rename the "tools.vtdb.vectric" file to be "tools.vtdb" It probably would be best to make a copy of the "tools.vtdb.vectric" first then rename that copy. Otherwise if you need the original "tools.vtdb.vectric" in the future it wouldn't be there. In Windows Explorer you can "right-click" on the ...

Re: Inlay Chip out

Here is a simple example of multiple passes for an inlay plug to be placed in a base. It is a sample file I made when I was going create a post on multiple passes that eventually became this one: https://forum.vectric.com/viewtopic.php?p=264755#p264755 All toolpaths will need to be recalculated befo...

Re: Inlay Chip out

So if I reduce the pass depth on the end mill and V carve bit will that give me the separate passes or do I need separate tool paths? Re-watch the video at this point: https://youtu.be/RY0zLv3wcyc?t=1237 carefully. As TReischl pointed out above, even if you follow what's in Stephan's videos you mig...

Re: Import a Rhino model - how do I do it.

This nasty little issue may have crept into the software sometime after V4.5 and nobody really noticed it. Perhaps there is something in this. I grabbed the Rhino file of a project from years ago that used "other software" and imported that into VCarve. See images below. A similar file that was imp...

Re: #D carving Artifacts

I have run a 3D carving program and where Aspire seems to randomly start and stop new sections I wound up with something very odd looking. Perhaps a recapitulation—tuffduck is... quite probably using a 3D Finishing toolpath (the "3D carving program" alluded to above) because the textured field's bo...

Re: Import a Rhino model - how do I do it.

I don't know if you are aware of the "Zebra" command in Rhino (and it's companion ZebraOff). The attached image is a Zebra stripe analysis of the problematic corner of the STL file. The striping should all be even as on the left and top planes. That curved and sloped plane, though, has some irregula...

Re: Poor Spoil-board re-surface results

What bit did you use? That is: is it a flat bottom one such as this: https://www.leevalley.com/en-ca/shop/tools/power-tool-accessories/router-bits/110463-flattening-router-bits or does it have a non-flat bottom such as this: https://www.leevalley.com/en-ca/shop/tools/power-tool-accessories/router-bi...

Re: Import a Rhino model - how do I do it.

I had no problems importing the original STL file directly into VCarve Pro v9.519. That they are separate meshes doesn't seem to bother VCarve. But, edge treatment similar to BillK. I took the meshes, extracted their edges and created two-rail sweeps in Rhino (file sent via e-mail, Leo). The result ...

Re: Failed Import Issues.

Plus, VCarve creates .mmg files for various machines but does not read them (nor any other .tap, .nc, .gcode, etc.) files.
