Re: Easy Keyhole Toolpath Maker

Hello All As per request, I have added a slope value to the Easy Keyhole gadget. For Version 3.0 we have a angle amount will add wall pressure as the item moves downward so that the item will fit snuggly to the wall. If you do not want this feature, set the value to zero (0.0). Please see the images...

Re: Easy Keyhole Toolpath Maker

Jim, One of the functionalities of the keyhole to me is that it should be angled downward so that the fit is snug. Here is a sample of my gcode that I use but would love to see this as an addition to the gadget. J3,-5.000,0,1.000 J3,-5.000,0,0.1000 M3,-5.000,0,-0.3750 M3,-5.000,.675,-0.4000 M3,-5.0...

Re: Vectric V11 Wish list

I have a wish for the Rotate function...

The Rotate command is always default to 0.0deg's even if you rotate an object (45.0deg's) and later when you need to Rotate function another object it is back to 0.0deg's.

Can you have it remember the last amount used?
