Re: small swing top boxes

They look great! I like the way the fairy looks with the mica powder and epoxy.

Re: Melamine

The settings I used is about 14% line spacing, this varies based on size or level of detail I want, and I usually use a .125 ball nose.

I have holes in my table bed from it just stopping mid toolpath and driving straigh...

Re: Photo-V-Carve in V10

Thank you Mohamed, that will be very much appreciated. Is there any chance of being able to use ballnose as well as vbits?

This is why I asked in a different thread if Vectric had planned updates for the new toolpathing. Based on a video they posted I was under the impression that PVC was fully integrated into Vcarve10.
