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?

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.

Re: cu2d laser

There is a cut2d laser version. I got it when i bought an emblaser off kickstarter some years ago. Not sure if it's available off their website. I would imagine that it's mostly a matter of having a post processor that would output commands your machine can understand. I think a lot of Chinese machi...

Re: cleaning up a touch probe scan

Sorry for the lack of info. I've been out all day. I'm trying to reproduce some molding in my home. It's an 1885 Victorian. A previous owner has removed the molding from the back of the house, so I need to remake it from a copy of the front. This will be for the maid's quarters so it's not as elabor...

cleaning up a touch probe scan

I have a machine that I just use to build a point cloud of an item I'm trying to reproduce. The scan of a wooden object has the grain of the object on it's flat surface. This adds a lot of additional machining time, which is unnecessary. I've tried the smoothing tool which helps but does not remove ...

Re: Help with vector cutting order

I individually selected the vectors while holding the shift key, instead of dragging. I wonder if that would account for the different result? In any case, thanks for fixing it.

Help with vector cutting order

I'm cutting out dividers for some parts drawers. The material will be 1/32 plastic which is very flimsy. I'm trying to maintain a specific cutting order to allow more of the sheet to be intact while cutting each divider. I want the cut to start at the bottom right corner of each divider and cut in a...
