Re: Vectorclip3d

Has anyone been experiencing trouble with this site lately? I cannot reach their forum and the "contact" form returns an error. I tried to contact Norbert through the online form but with the same error. I am wondering if it may be an issue on my side or has anyone else experienced an issue.

Re: 2 sided machine tooling

I have a shark as well and sometimes I have had issues with the 0,0,0, position. What I've learned is that if I ensure I return to home, Set Z0 and then load the code file my "issues" are minimized. Most of the time when I have had 0,0,0 issues it has been resolved by loading a random code file, set...

Re: 2 Rail Sweep

Thanks for the link to that threat John. It sure did shed some light onto some additional techniques. It had not dawned on me to split a profile to allow use of the moulding tool path to the "inside". My head was stuck in the complete profile itself. Time to generate some chips and see what I can do...

Re: 2 Rail Sweep

So one thing I have discovered is that closed profiles always apply the moulding to the outside of the profile. How do you get it to apply the profile shape to the inside? I have created a few paths which use a small center radius as the rail but this pretty much limits me to round or square shapes ...

Re: 2 Rail Sweep

Moulding looks like it will add some interesting variation to the process. I stared watching the tutorials last night and will try to use it this week in a trial.

Re: 2 Rail Sweep

So I did some work with the Fluting toolpath with somewhat surprising results. I used log segment from a Locust tree we cut down last year. It was a small 6.6 x 6.5 x 1.75 piece but the bit depth is limited so I don't think I would want to go much deeper. I set the segment area to 5.75" and created ...

Re: 2 Rail Sweep

I have not yet done any work with the moulding functions so I will need to work on that one. I'm not sure of the Fluting will achieve the effect Ii am looking for since most of the pieces of the material I have to work with are round and oval. I have used the various modes of domes/dishes to work on...

2 Rail Sweep

I recently watched a Tips and Tricks video that demonstrated the 2 Rail Sweep technique for frames and this set off a light bulb for me to create some shallow dishes I have been thinking of but have not gotten to yet. When looking in VCP 9.5 to try this feature I discovered this was an Aspire featur...

Dale. How did you open it with v9.5? Were you using V-Carve or Aspire?

Re: Need help with egg tray project please

Dale, your 18 egg tray looks great. Thanks for posting it. I don’t appear to be able to send a PM on this forum. Would you be able to send me the V-carve file as well? I am using the latest version of V-Carve Pro (9). This looks like an interesting project and would provide a great starting point fo...
