Re: Returning to zero after each toolpath

Hello Greg, The chances are that other people may not be able to replicate what you are seeing. As Adrian mentioned, the post processor that you are using is not the one that is shipped as standard with V10.5. As adze_cnc pointed out, the post processor that you have posted up does not export G2/G3 ...

Re: adding a curve to a circle

Hello John,

Another method would be to draw rectangles that overlap the circles, select all of the vectors and then use the 'Weld Selected Vectors' tool to create the shapes. On the current version of the software, the intersections could also be filleted if this is desired.

Cheers,

Mark.

Re: Missing N

Hello Peter, With overlapping letters, there can be several machinable results, the software has to try and guess at the correct option. Very often it will correctly do this, which is why most of the result is correct, but it will fail with some results. The way to overcome this, is after the text h...

Re: Layers

Hello Vmastros, The software is exceeding unlikely to be corrupted, so re-installing is not likely to change anything. From what you describe, you would not need to create two layers to construct this, you can place both vectors on the same layer and select each for the two separate toolpaths that y...

Re: Tool database

Hello Robert, If you look in the ToolDatabase Folder, there is a file named "tools.vtdb.vectric" this is a copy of the original sample tool database. You can rename the "tools.vtdb" file to something else, and rename the "tools.vtdb.vectric" file to be "tools.vtdb" This would restore the original sa...

Re: Tinker cad 3d to vcarve pro

Hello,

Not familiar with the package that you have mentioned, but most 3D CAD packages can export
a 3D model in STL format, you can import in an STL model into VCarve.

I hope that this helps.

Cheers,

Mark.
