Re: Multi-Sheet Questions

I believe the assigned/chosen file name is redundant because in my case my folder name where the toolpath is saved is assigned the assigned/chosen name usually the project name. I am working within Toolpaths so I am led to believe Sheets with vectors have priority here for without sheets with vector...

Re: vector validator

The Vector Validator is just that a tool for analyzing vectors prior to toolpath creation. It is up to you to correct the vector errors using the various tools provided prior to toolpath creation. If you don't fix the vectors before the toolpaths are created they will not perform as expected. Sharkc...

Re: new user not sure where to start

Just to add to the previous Post --- A 90 Degree .5 cutting height V-bit was used to carve the simulation image.

And as stated by a previous poster it might be beneficial to review the Tutorial videos at the Vectric website!

To Clarify / Explain a little about the V-Carve Toolpath. Reference the image below as I explain each outcome -- The first is Arial Black Fonts Using a Profile Toolpath with a V-bit On the Vector with a Cut depth(C) setting of 1/16" The Second is V-CARVE Toolpath with none Flat Depth(F) (The Width o...

Re: Help Me Justify Upgrading to V11

Yup, all the prior opinions/comments/suggestions are recommended. I myself found that there is one really huge improvement with VCP 11 that is the capability of keeping various thickness parts of a project all in one Project File by using SHEETS which was already a part of VCP in the Nesting Feature...

Re: Newbie Alert: Can I get some feedback on this file?

But look around the base of the letter. It looks like the toolpath skipped the section that’s about one tool-width across. By RAWDAD I bet you stopped the toolpath midstream! You may be under the impression it had not carved the areas but yeah you may be correct because those area are left on purpo...

Re: Layers shortcut key.

oooohhhh..... I never noticed that. Cool. 8)
Another interesting note I had failed to mention is that the Layers can be reorganized on the Layer tab by highlighting the layer you want moved then selecting either the move up arrow or move down arrow in the upper right of the Layer tab.

Re: Layers shortcut key.

The only one I am aware of is:

In the Layer tab (lower left) there is a bulb which turns all layers on/off.

Depending on the project depth of pocket --- (and it is also determined by the angle needed for the pocket walls.)

Re: i cant figure out what I've done wrong

Since this is a text based sign I would take that one stage further, put your original text on a seperate layer, lock the layer & turn it off so you can't see it. Once text has been converted to curves it is no longer Text as such & in the future you have no way of knowing which fonts you used. By ...
