Re: Amana 1/8" roundover - #49694 tool file issue

So why does a diameter of 0.3767 cause a problem? Because you don't know whether, when Amana created that form tool, they made the flat longer or the radius of the arc longer or a combination of both. Taking the profile from their DXF file (replacing their arc with my own because theirs was rubbish...

Re: Object Instancing - Feature Wish

AboveCreations: The "Object Instancing" mentioned here is similar to what Rhinoceros 3D calls "Record History". This page: https://www.designcoding.net/recording-history-in-rhinoceros/ show an example. Of particular interest is the very last animation on the page. Change one hexagon and all in the a...

Re: Toolpath to multiple objects?

To illustrate my post about layers (and to add a few other topics to learn about) see the attached file. I created one pentagon in a layer I called "pentagon". I created a profile toolpath for it called "profile pentagon" using the Vector Selector rather than manually selecting the pentagon. In this...

Re: Toolpath to multiple objects?

Rather than selecting the vectors manually use the "Vector Selector" to select the layer that the vectors are on and choose "associate with toolpath": https://docs.vectric.com/docs/V11.0/VCarvePro/ENU/Help/form/vector-selector/index.html Now, no matter what vectors you add to or remove from the laye...

Re: Why is this happening...again?

I am running the Piranha on a power strip, but nothing else is plugged into it. Sometime last year I watched a video on not plugging powered speakers (for events) into a powerbar. Perhaps similar logic could apply to your machine. https://kettnercreative.com/speaker/quick-tip-dont-use-a-powerbar-wi...
