Re: Pocket Problem

Sharkcutup....I really like your ideas and since our state imposed a self quarantine, I have a whole lot of time to work on this project :D How did you cut the bunny's face? Yes, it could be done with time and a little beefing up a bit (whiskers for example are only about .05 thick). Would possibly...

Re: Pocket Problem

With time you could transpose the bunny tray to a whole 3D Look.

This is a bit rough but it gives you the idea of what it could look like with some time spent on it!

Re: Name Puzzles

Interesting concept! Do not know of anything out there that can automatically created these. A Gadget could probably be created for specific font packages. I am not well versed in creating Gadgets just thought maybe to suggest it and maybe someone here at the forum who is well versed in creating Gad...

Re: No tool path generated

An intersection or loop in the vector could cause the “bit won’t fit” error and would also explain why no Toolpath is being generated.
GOOD POINT Michael!!!

Re: Problems with Vector Selection Order toolpath

Two toolpaths holes first then outlines MERGED or when output to save toolpath (check off "output all visible toolpaths to one file") Just be sure to use the same size bit or else you will get an error popup in either case merged or the other. Profile Toolpath - I have found that vector selection or...

Re: Drilling and Carving Issues

Guys, you may be on to something there! I remember my days of running a CNC Inspection machine with a Automatic tool changer and there were some things you had to make sure of before hand such as correct holder, presets prior, etc.... ! It has been a while but I do recall some of those things needed...

Re: V Grove Fold joint

But I believe the OP is referring to the what is called a 45 Degree Chamfer bit to cut 4 - 45 degree edges to make a box. The 45 Degree Chamfer bit is actually built to 90 degrees. They are most commonly made with a roller bearing on the end which causes a flat if used for CNC edging. I was just pro...

Re: V Grove Fold joint

If you should decide to use 45 degree Chamfer router bit for hand held router with bearing REMOVED . You would have to compensate box side measurements in relations to the size bit you are using. I would also recommend clearance passes to hog out the majority(2/3's) of the pass depth for the bearing...

Re: Drilling and Carving Issues

Could be a number of things that may cause a machine to do this. 1.) incorrect post processor used to save .tap file 2.) Stepper motors losing steps on the Z-Axis 3.) A cnc machine system which is not sufficiently grounded --- Static interference. 4.) A cnc machine controller too close to another hi...
