Re: strange pocket behavior

Thanks to all.. I didn't know about the vector validater, thanks for pointing it out. I used it so I could see how it works. I had never seen that issue before, and didn't really know where to begin looking.

strange pocket behavior

I'm trying to clear off material so that I have 1 3/16" left. I use pocket tool path and 2 bits, 1.5" and .25" For some reason the 1.5" bit is not respecting the vector I chose or the material boundary. I've tried reordering the bits, deleting the paths and redoing them. 2020-09-17.png Had to zip th...

Re: Plasma Cutting Module

I also have been using aspire to make the dxf files which get exported to my plasma software. I was trying to get the plasma tool to work so I could use the preview to show customers. I’ll try the 0.40 endmill and see if that gives me what I want.

Re: Plasma Cutting Module

Was using 10.22, have now upgraded to 10.5 and getting same result. Here is the screen shot. The plasma tool does not show up in the list when choosing a tool in the profile cut section.

Re: Plasma Cutting Module

Not sure what you mean by what did i define it as? It is in the end mill section of the tool database.
I tried both pocket and profile paths, would have thought profile would have been possible.

Re: Plasma Cutting Module

I defined a plasma tool which is available in aspire but it will not allow me to select it when defining a tool path.

Re: Any 5' x 5' CNC machines out there?

Camaster cobra comes in that size. Maybe they would do a custom size in a cheaper model if money is an issue.

Re: Roughing path question

The cleanup step only goes over the perimeter of the rectangles not the field. Your point is valid if i was using a very tiny bit. I will keep it in mind if doing fine work.

Roughing path question

I'm rastering a roughing path in a rectangular area. After each z depth, the machine goes back to each rectangle and cuts around the perimeter. Almost like a cleanup. This seems unnecessary as it is just roughing and will be gone over in the finishing path. Did i miss a setting to turn this off?

Re: Design screen color

Yesterday, i sent vectric support a feature request for this same thing. Maybe more requests to support asking for this moves it up the priority list....

2d view colors

Is it possible to change the colors of the 2d view screen? I'd like to have black screen, bright green drawings, yellow grid dots, blue guidelines. I find it very hard to see the grid dots. An option to change the dots to graph paper would also be nice.
