Re: Design and make model

Do mean this?

If so, then enlarging the model (in Vcarve) is most likely the only method.... I'm sure I will be corrected if I'm wrong. :D :D :D

Re: double sided Project

Your alignment is off. You should be using alignment holes/dowels. Measuring the boards and placement just won't work. Errors are compounded 2X after flipping.

Re: Laser module with Axiom Precision (RichAuto B18 HHC)

I am also hoping for the proper post processors for axiom. I recently was in touch with Axiom. They indicated that they forwarded the specs for post processor development. I also emailed vectric and they stated that they will be offering more post processors as time permits. It won't be much good a...

Re: Scaling Off

The crv file is correct. Either the bit size used was incorrect, an incorrect pp was used, or your CNC needs calibration. I would test the calibration first.

Re: 2.5 carve roughing problem

Thank you to everyone who has responded! Interesting that my software is showing version 10.022. I thought I had recently installed the update to 10.5. I just tried to update it I got a prompt saying I had to install an earlier version of 10 before I can update to 10.5. ??? The post processor I've ...

Re: Inserting a hole

I'd draw one circle. Use the align tools to align it at top and edge (doesn't matter left or right) or draw it on the snap point of the corner of the rectangle. Then use the Move tool and type in the relative amounts to get it where I wanted (1.75" and 4.9mm in this case). To create the other circl...

Yes, I prefer to use the Spektra tapered ball bit for the finishing cut, but it adds about 30+ hours to the run time.
You should be using a ball nose or tapered ball nose for this cut, not a square end mill.

Mine will be done printing shortly. (I commissioned my son to print it for me!)
That's even better... HE has to take of the printer. :D

Re: Inserting a hole

I draw a box with 4.9mm vertical side (enter '4.9*m=' to convert to Imperial.). I use ALIGN OBJECTS to align the top of the rectangle with the top edge of the project box. If you make the box at least 4" wide, you can delete the top and sides of this box with the snip tool, which will leave the bott...

Re: 2.5 carve roughing problem

Puck setting correct? Try zeroing the old fashioned way, with a piece of paper between bit and work piece.
