Re: I could use some help with this 3d texture file

I think I am missing something. I took the whole texture model and did the 3d cut on it and it shows only .48 cut depth thats good. but if I use vectors to only cut the parts I want it shows 1.2 depth. I have the boundry offset set to 0 so the bit should not be plunging down at the edge. I even gave...

I could use some help with this 3d texture file

I do so little 3d sometimes a year between them that I forgot how to do most things. I need to get the texture to cut at around 1/4" to 1/2" but its way deeper then that and my brain cant remember how to fix it. I always struggled with depth when I used 3d. https://www.dropbox.com/s/dmtxrppditqdloy/...

Re: strange pocket error

here is a pic. we liked the lip this is a salt holder and the lip keeps the salt in. but the ballnose bit rubs under and on the shaft adding the lip. so the error was good but even when I got it to work without the notch the cut was too rough. http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s266/knighttoolworks/...

strange pocket error

this is on aspire 3.504 and it is a simple pocket with a ball nose bit. when I cut it to a depth of 1.5" with one toolpath it was fine. but there were toolmarks on the bottom. so I copied the toolpath told it to cut 1.45" deep then the second tool path to start a 1.45 and cut .05 with a much smaller...
