Re: Finial rotary Optimization

A highly skilled wood turner would produce these fairly quickly with consistent dimensions. However a highly skilled wood turner I am NOT. My setup has the same spindle thread on my rotary axis as my wood lathe for the following reason. The finial blank can be mounted in a chuck and the consistent s...

Re: Too many fonts

I intrigues me as to why Vectric is the only software that I have ever used that lists both "@Clementine" and "Clementine"

Re: Too many fonts

So if the @ means that it supports asian languages, why does it make the text vertical? For an example, I have both "Adobe Gothic Std B" and "@Adobe Gothic Std B" in the drop down font list. They are both the same font just that the @ one aligns vertically. All the other "@" fonts also have a standa...

Re: Too many fonts

Similar to the OP's question I get many fonts at the top of the list, starting with the @ symbol.

These fonts just align vertically rather than horizontal. I never use them.

No other program that I use shows these fonts. They do not appear in the windows font folder.

Can I get rid of them?

Re: 4th Axis Incomplete Finish Cut

It would still surprise me if the controller has no way to control that rotary axis behavior.

If that is so then the controller is quite deficient for rotary axis use. IMO

Re: 4th Axis Incomplete Finish Cut

One way around this would be to change your finishing strategy.

Have the cutter travel along the length of the piece with the rotary turning a small amount each pass.

That is the way I do most rotary jobs.

Re: 4th Axis Incomplete Finish Cut

It should be there somewhere. Look at the manual or ask the manufacturer.

Re: 4th Axis Incomplete Finish Cut

I see you have an axiom machine. That usually means you either have a DSP controller or UCCNC Take a look at a setting called "Rollover on 360" in UCCNC. "Rot 360 Rollover" in Mach3. No idea what it is called on the DSP. You gcode calls A360, A0 repeatedly after the crown section. See snippet. N6308...

Re: MACH3 Shaking and jittery on 3D relief cut

I did set the CV adjustments as per the last post, I don't have the option of a "settings" page so I'm not sure where to find it.. I must assume you are using a third party sceenset if there is no settings page. If so then go to "View" menu, select "Load Screens", select "1024.set" Then you will ha...

Re: Vector selector

No this was not in node editing mode. Which shows all nodes and handles etc.

This was in normal selection mode. Vector showing purple (or whatever you call it) when selected.

But yes it was the same small grey arrow

Vector selector

This is probably applicable to all versions of Vectric

Whilst going through the vector selection options at one point there appeared on every vector a small grey arrow which I think was on the start point.

Try as I might I can not get it to show again. Is there something I am missing.
