Re: Newbie Questions

Yup! The Bit Diameter could be a possible problem on the outer perimeter if clamps are used for hold down of spoilboard! Might be better to create an new program within V-Carve that way you will know and understand all that is performed. A big plus to that is you get to use V-carve and familiarize y...

Re: Newbie Questions

Re: Last Pass and Preview

Thank you adze_cnc for the awesome explanation! And yup I didn't thoroughly understand the last pass function as Vectric has programmed/intended.

Re: Last Pass and Preview

Well my understanding was a bit off but ----

Just want to better understand what is happening/occurring.

Re: Last Pass and Preview

But it differs as it's lass pass is a whole new pass at full depth. Unlike VCarve's that makes the last cut through the material as the last pass. In my case, cutting the last 1/4" of the 1/2" material as the last pass and on the line vs offset by 0.003". V-Carve makes the last pass not only cuttin...

Re: Last Pass and Preview

Put an allowance of .003 in the Allowance(A) box and it will work as you want it to. Below Taken from User Guide Do Separate Last Pass A separate allowance can be specified for the last pass. If this allowance is given then all but the last pass will be undercut by the specified allowance with the f...

Re: Eliminate thumb drive?

In addition to having computers networked I regularly backup all my V-Carve files including Post Processors, Tool Database, Material textures, and any clipart I may have added to the clipart files.
