Re: uccnc controller support

Thanks so much for everyone's help. It was a wrong (mm) posting in the CV settings rather than inches. A change and all works like it should!

Re: uccnc controller support

I should also add that if I create a circle vector it cuts fine (not hexagonal). But, if I take the text (the letter O) and convert it to vectors, the machine still cuts it with hexagonal and not round. Perplexing?

Re: New and need help

Quit all software. Turn the machine off. Turn the computer off. Wait a couple of minutes. Turn everything back on. If that does not work then, most likely, there is a machine problem.

Inlay Toolpath and pockets

I think I know how to do this but I would like some confirmation from anyone who is doing this. I want to use the inlay toolpath. The toolpath requires that you use the same bit for the male and female parts. So, I want to cut out the male inlay (pearl) with a .023” bit. Now I need to cut the female...

Re: aspire 4.5

More likely than not the file you received was created in a pirated copy of 4.5. Legitimate copies of the software will not open them. They can only be opened with the pirated copy!

Re: 2 Sided and Thickness of material

That does not work as it cuts the depth in half!

Re: 2 Sided and Thickness of material

Steve I understand that. What I am trying to do is to put a bevel on both sides. When I did the two rail sweep I made the vector "sweeping across th span 1.75" tall. Therefore each side is looking at 1.75". What I do not understand is, if I did them in separate one sided files they would work fine b...

Re: FREEBIE FILE ARE MUCH BIGGER THAN MY WORKAREA.

As to how deep to cut, it depends on your hold down method. If you are using (like I use) the blue masking tape-superglue method it is much easier. I determined that the two layers of blue masking tape and superglue (do a search on this forum for the method) is almost exactly .008". Therefore, I set...
