What all the convolution (a 3.5 square 33 inches long threw me a bit—a dressed 4x4 post 33 inches long makes more sense) boils down to is: one board will have a mortise cut into it and the other board (the one whose 1st cut is simulated in the picture in the first post) will be a tenon. Ech face of ...

### Re: Error: No toolpath generated...

Bob,

Neither vector is closed. There are stray bits. One vector loops back upon itself. See circled parts in images (left prong and right prong).

Steven

Left prong.

Right prong.

### Re: Virtual Center Dimensions Different from Actual Dimensions

Three things: you say :virtual centre” do you mean “virtual zero”? if you meant “virtual zero” is your spoilboard that warped the you actually need to use the feature? If your spoilboard is ice and flat the feature is kind of pointless. you say the job size is 17.9. Do you cut all the way out to the...

Short answe: no. Slightly longer answer: graph theory says no. Practical answer: you need to create to half-mooons.

### Re: Profile question

I suspect the image is of something that the original poster wants to replicate not an image of the result of toolpathing. (looks like some concrete or concrete-like object). Fleeto: I can see this being done with the fluting toolpath. Where each whorl is a separate open vector that describes the pa...

### Re: Vcarve toolpath depth question

Can he not: set the Z0 with the touchplate on the board. Remove the board. Move the Z down via pendant / control pad to negative whatever he figures is fair. Then set that as the Z0. Replace the board. Cut away to his heart's content (making sure VCarve raises his normal clearance plus the amount of...

### Re: Start Depth cant be negative?

So, your new material (original material plus inlay) is 0.50" thicker than your original material's thickness ("omt") but you want to treat it as being 0.53" thicker? There's no need to have a negative start depth. If you are using a suitably new version of VCarve that allows creating multiple sheet...

If the file is too large then just images of the settings will do. See my previous posts for what's needed.

### Re: 4th Axis Rotary struggles

Looking at the 3D model preview all the cut depths, material remaining, etc. are correct dimensions based on object size, material size, and cutting parameters. As this is your first project the question to ask is: if the rotary attachment calibrated properly? If you try to round a square piece to a...

.Zip file was too Large to Attach/Import Here. Download from Link to DropBox Below What’s really causing a soaring file size is the PNG files for the help system.

It may have been built-in gadget but it does’t appear to have been a separate add-on gadget as this snapshot from 2012 shows.

### Re: File Size

the first image I posted was merely an example to the Original Poster (op) of where the parameters for cut and tool can be found so that an explanatory screenshot could be made. It was not meant to provide any sort of solution. The 0.001 flat depth was leftover from a previous experiment. the whole...

Homeg? or Homag?

If Homag then type it into the "Search…” box above and you’ll find plenty of hit or miss posts about getting it to work. Apparently it aso goes by “Weeke (Homag)” depeding on what the machine model is.

### Re: File Size

The original picture image is not very useful. What John was looking for was the .crv file. With that we can check your feeds and speeds for the tool, the size of the vectors, etc. Which could also be seen by posting a screenshot as asked above. I can easily reproduce your 32+ hours. I took the imag...
