Re: Acoustic Guitar Neck - help please

If the boundary is set to 0.3 inches and your cutter is smaller than that the cutter is going to go past the edges of the selected vectors. Also if you are only selecting the slot vectors you are telling Aspire to cut inside those slots. You would need to tell Aspire to cut between the slots and the...

Re: 3D print to Engaving

How long is a piece of string? What kind of 3D are you looking for?

Here's a fairly lame 5 minute attempt. I just made each of the 3 colours in the M into a region and pocketed two of those regions to a depth. If I had spent 10 minutes I'd have cleaned up the boundaries.

Re: Acoustic Guitar Neck - help please

I have tried to use the “Clear area of selected component inside the selected vectors” but when I go to the simulation it still carves the slots in the headstock but in a weird way. See screenshots. What are the "selected vectors"? If they are just the ones that define the slots then yes I can see ...

Re: Cutting Boards with Inlays

Gary: "When in doubt draw it out" might be the catchy way of describing how I did things. In Rhino 3D I drew a cricle. Then a vertical line. I rotated the line to the 6.2 degrees. I then moved the line using the tip as the starting point until it intersected with the circle at the tangent. I drew a ...

Re: Dont know where to start

martin: I expect what is being reffered to as a “ceiling rose” is this item . I’m not good with names of such things but I’d be tempted to call it: architrave finial. I wonder if such an item already exists in the clipart library? It certainly looks doable as a moulding toolpath. Make the profile. D...

Re: Help please. . . Corbels

I’m with martin here. I’m going to presume (due to gradient background and model colour) that the 1st image is Aspire. The second image is?

Does Aspire need the components “baked” before exporting? Can you show a screenshot of you modelling component tree?

Re: Using cut2d with 3018 prover v2

This page at Genmitsu seems to have a “whacking great” amount of good information. Including grbl erro codes. You can also glean from that you’d be using a grbl post-processor (I would expect Cut2D to support that).

Re: can these bevels be cut in Vcarve??

Yup. With the proviso that like chamfer and fluting methods there will be cutting outside the envelope of the speaker face.

Re: How to place the workpiece in the same place?

Yeah, I think that you pretty much have got it. Here's a recent sample. As you can see the alignment jig has been used quite a bit. The clay extruder blank was something that was pre-cut to size for another application. Also attached is a sample template that I use when I need to make a new alignmen...

I suppose the moulding toolpath would be another choice.

Re: Retrace path CCW rotation

You might find that just running the second path normally would work. I wonder if for the second path using a spiral ramp would help.

Re: can these bevels be cut in Vcarve??

You mention Aspire. This could be modelled easily in Aspire and cut with 3D Roughing and 3D Finishing toolpaths fairly quickly. You’d easily be able to use a 3/8” or even 1/2” ball end cutter to do so with a reasonably larger stepover (say 1/32” or more). The attached image shows as bench I did in V...
