Toolpath tiling?

I've watched the tutorials on toolpath tiling. They are spot-on for taking a large job and splitting into smaller pieces to fit a particular machine. My issue is that I have a piece longer than my machines X axis and I do NOT want to cut the piece - it needs to be one board. How do I determine where...

Hey mike, Noticed your avatar and immediately thought that's a powered parachute. I've flown those befor - lots of fun. I have a Jalber Parafoil parachute that is red, white, and blue stripes. No such thing as a "perfectly good airplane." I've got 738 skydives. All private - no military jumps, my Se...

Square outside corners

I'm sure there is an easy way, I haven't found it. I'm trying to cut out a 3" square from 3/4" material (my 1/16" and 1/8" bits aren't long enough) and I want the outside corners to be square. So far all my attempts produce a radius on the outside corners.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Re: With the grain

HSS bits usually give a much better cut. HSS takes a sharper edge than carbide. Always a trade-off: sharper edge or longer lasting???

Re: Aspire V10.5 is OUT NOW!

When I try to download the upgrade to 10.5 from 10.022 I get a message saying I am up to date. Aspire says it is still on 10.022 in upper left corner.
How do I get the upgrade?

Thank you.
