Re: Zero Plane

You can use Create vector boundary around selected components. It's in the modeling tab.

Re: 3D Corugated pattern

You could use the Extrude option. Draw a line for the drive rail of the extrude and then apply a vector of the wave pattern. Great addition to learn.

Re: Carving pocket

It sounds like you have two tools defined in the TOOLS box in the Pocket toolpath. Remove all but the 1/4" bit and recalc.

Re: Laser/software question.

The Axiom, add-on laser DOES NOT provide variable power to the laser. It is either on or off. They call it an "etching laser". There is a manual switch to direct power to either the laser or the spindle. The B18 controller also needs some manual changes. The only way to control the density of the bu...

Re: Got to use the Thread Mill

That is a really nice box. I purchased a thread mill, but I've only run the training video. My aim is to make threaded boxes, so your project is something to shoot for. Nice work.

Re: out of soft

Your file is not out of limits for your machine. You have set your Vcarve project home at the lower left. Where have you set your Axiom Work Origin? You should place your project board on the spoilboard so all parts are within your cutting limits. Move the spindle to the bottom left of the project b...

Not sure I understand why the second mount is limiting the Z Depth travel.
He can't slide his router downward any further in this mount.

Re: Redoing Nesting

I don't think so. I think a good habit to get into is using Ctrl+Alt+S to do a save and increment file. It increments the file name by 1 and does a save. Now that copy of the file is safe. It's save my butt quite a few times after my new 'brilliant' idea doesn't work out.

Thanks. I think I have the principals of your idea. I'll have to mull that over and see what I can come up with.

Re: Machining Limit Boundary

ohiolyons: I know it can be done with the Selected Vectors option gkas: is there a way tp model the pocket so that the boundary limits of the "selected level" have something to latch onto?

What if you put a vector around the outer edge of your model and put a vector around the area you don't want to 3d cut. Then select both vectors and only rough and finish between them?
Can't do that. Selected Vectors is not an available option with Selected Level.

Machining Limit Boundary

I was playing around with optimizing a double sided 3D carve. One side has a large central area that doesn't need to be carved, since it will be removed in a pocketing operation. To get the 3D depth correct, I'm running my Finish Toolpath with the Selected Level Option. Is there a way to not carve t...
