Re: Adding a Birdsmouth Form Tool

To correctly do this Dummy, I take it that I would have to in someway create a cut with an Offset? I'm probably overthinking it, but that is what I tend to do.

Re: Adding a Birdsmouth Form Tool

So in essence, it is impossible to add this tool bit to Vcarve. I guess I'll just have to manually define the GCode to create a Tool Path.

Adding a Birdsmouth Form Tool

Has anyone ever attempted to add a Birdsmouth Form Tool to their database? Whenever I attempt to add my 5/8" 45 Degree Birdsmouth Bit to my Tool Database I end up with nothing more than a 45 Degree V-Bit. When in fact the actual bit is nothing more than a V-Bit on its side. When creating the necessa...

Re: Tapered Pockets

I tried the Fluting Tool Path method, but even though the Manual states that it will create a Taper. It didn't appear to do so, though the Spline Cuts looked pretty good. Will have to give them a try on my machine to see if they're what I was looking for.

Tapered Pockets

Does anyone here know of a Video Presentation that will show me how to Design and Tool Path a Tapered Pocket on a Rotary Axis? I have a Form Tool for adding Splines to Pool Cues and need to have multiple cuts on a rotary tapered piece beginning in the center of the workpiece to one of the ends that ...

Re: Drawing Points for Pool Cues

I took your advice and instead created a rectangular file using the radius of the Cue diameter and length. Wherein I created an Inlay Tool Path to be cut using my rotary axis. I'll give it a try and adjust it as necessary to increase or decrease the number of points on a particular cue which are usu...

Drawing Points for Pool Cues

I've tried drawing the Points found on Pool Cues. But can't find a way to draw them ware the Vectors would be Closed so that I can create Tool Paths. Does anyone have any idea as to how I might Proceed? I'm trying to project sai points onto a Rotary Background.

For additional information, I am attempting to create Toolpaths using an STL File while in a Rotary Wrapped Flat 3D Project.

Selecting Vectors

Whenever I attempt to Select Vectors in VCarve Pro 9.5 regardless as to whether I use the Box Method of creating a Box from the Bottom Right to Left Upper Corner or use CTRL + A. Everytime I attempt to calculate a Toolpath, I get a "No Suitable Vectors Selected" Message.
What am I missing here?

Re: Cutting Rotary Tapers in VCarve Pro 9.5

I was able to get it to work. Though I haven't figured out yet how to make the model smaller consistently so that I don't run into this problem and is there a Minimum Diameter that will work when setting up a Rotary Taper. Also, when I previously mentioned the 2 Rail Sweep. It was from the VCarve Pr...

Re: Cutting Rotary Tapers in VCarve Pro 9.5

I've been investigating the Advanced Modelling of 3D Rotary Projects as printed in the users guide but have run into a problem that I can't seem to get around. It is stated that you are to Double-Click on the Zero Plane to Open the Component Properties and enter 0.8 in the Base Height Box. Select Ti...

Re: Cutting Rotary Tapers in VCarve Pro 9.5

I've watched each of those videos and learned a lot. I have also figured out to which degree that I need to Offset the Height of the Tailstock End from the Headstock End to Create the necessary Tapers. At present I am working with the VCarve 9.5 User Guide describing Advanced modelling of 3D rotary ...

Re: Cutting Rotary Tapers in VCarve Pro 9.5

I tried using the Advanced modelling 3D rotary projects VCarve Pro Guide but as soon as I tried to Wrap the design I would get an error message in the Material Setup each and every time. I was hoping that someone knew of a video explaining the process so that I could determine where my error was dur...

Cutting Rotary Tapers in VCarve Pro 9.5

Is anyone familiar with a way to design and cut tapered spindles in VCarve Pro 9.5? I have been able to create Spindles with STL's carved onto the circumference and now I'd like to progress into making these turnings onto Tapered Spindles. I've seen references to using the 2R Sweep Command but can't...
