Re: More Nodes

Here's why I needed more nodes.
The edges of the ice look much better jagged than smooth,, I think,
Thanks for all the comments.

Keep Cool

Greeting All. I'm old enough to remember the phrase "Keep Cool / Keep Your Cool" as being the popular words to say. Originally started in the mid 1950's it was in the mid 60"s that it really took hold in the language of the young people. Given the current conditions, both figuratively and literally,...

You mean something like this? With the nodes all nice and evenly spaced?

Re: More Nodes

Thanks guys for playing along. The "Fit Vectors to Curves" will change the shape of the circle so that wouldn't work as expected. And the idea of a 1/400th segment of a circle is interesting, but what happens if it's not a circle ... Again, thanks for indulging me in some way off topic stuff.. Michael

More Nodes

So, the long days at home, as we may have been dealing with, have for me, set my mind to thinking.. I know the importance of nodes and how to reduce the number of node.... But my question is,,,, Is there a way to populate a circle, with only 4 nodes, and convert it to a circle with, let's say, 400 n...

Re: Avoid toolpath overwrite

George,
You could not have gotten a better person to help you with this issue.

Re: Version 10.502 Pocket Toolpath

It appears that there is another bug,,this time with the Create Array Toolpath option.
In the latest version you can not double click on the Array toolpath and change any of the setting ( Number of X or Y settings , etc)
This was doable in V10..

Re: Project you're proudest of ???

For me, the projects I am most proud of are the one that I get to see the finished product. Showing my model, with the talents of people like Scott, has only kept me in awe of what others can do. The end results are awesome. Thanks Scott for pushing me to think in a different scale . Michael Dragons...

Re: Origin Problem

Peter,
Not sure, but from what I see, it appears that the left and bottom areas are the same in both the VCarve file and your screen shot.
Maybe your setting in the machine software needs to be looked at.

Re: Origin Problem

Peter,
What do you mean by align the toolpaths?
What you're seeing is that your machine x/y is at the bottom left and the vectors in the file are as positioned.
Is it that you want the vectors to align to the left and bottom sides ?
