What radius do you need? I can generate it for you but it has to be a dxf for carve to import it!

Re: 3D Roughing Stalls

Adrian -
Saw your message asking for my setup. I was at home so it took today to get to the machine and duplicate the "problem". Enclosed is a screen shot of my settings and the progress bar stalled. Let me know what you think?

Re: 3D Roughing Stalls

Finishing tool path alone did the job. Thanks to all! I still wonder why VCarve would stall in the middle of calculation with no message requiring a restart. Certainly not the way Vectric products usually behave!

3D Roughing Stalls

I am trying to help a friend with VCarve Pro 10.5 which he just purchased. We imported a 3D object and had no problem. However, when I attempted to create the roughing tool path VCarve starts the process and then hangs up and never finishes requiring a restart of the program. Can anyone help figure ...

3d in VCarve Pro

I am helping a new user with VCarve Pro. It was my understanding that VCarve would let you use 1 3D object in the file. I cannot seem to do that. Am I wrong or how do I accomplish that for my friend?

Re: inlay toolpath

I do a great amount of pearl inlay into a wood substrate (guitars). I have found that 1) you absolutely need to use the inlay tool path because it takes into account the interior corners being automatically radiused to fit the bit that cut the pearl (same bit for pearl and pocket), 2) you need to ha...

Re: Strategy to avoid leftovers in profile toolpaths?

If your part is relatively small you can use the blue masking tape and superglue method to hold it to the spoil board. I have found that the tape and glue are about .003-.005" thick. When profiling (cutout) I cut the part out at its' actual thickness. That way the part and leftovers are still secure...
