Re: No more Editing Text after closing the program

Hello OCEdesigns, Your problem is not related to version 10, with the 'text' in your project, you have preformed one or more distortions of the text. Your selection consists of two lines of text the top line "Get" is straight and uses a larger font size than the the lower curved line. As such some ...

Re: Z Probe Advice

Hi I will be doing a lot of text-based projects in the near future and will be purchasing an XYZ probe at some point. But mainly for the Z-axis function. I am using mostly V bits for the text as below. The text is only shallow into 5mm plywood and the text ideally needs to be 0.05 flat depth Using ...

Re: No more Editing Text after closing the program

This happens with version 9.5 projects AND version 10.0 projects on mine. I haven't noticed if it affects my circles. I can look when I get home. But it is really slowing things down when doing the designs.

No more Editing Text after closing the program

With the new version I noticed I can't open an existing file and edit the text. All it lets me do is create new text. It won't even tell me what font I used. As long as I don't close the current project I can change and edit anything I want. As soon as I close it and then re-open it up I'm done. Ver...

Re: VCarve Desktop & Pro Version 10 are available now!

I have upgraded to 10 but did not see where I needed to choose a Clipart package from Design and Make. Can I still get this?

Re: STL file not showing as a 3D file

Are you scaling the model or just selecting inches? Looks like you might be trying to import a model that is huge at 498 inches by 329 inches by 67 inches so only a very small part of the model fits in your material block :lol: :lol: YES! This was one of my first mistakes. I finally figured out to ...

Re: STL file not showing as a 3D file

I think I got it figured out!! I had to change the X Y settings. For some reason the model X and Y are different from how I have my machine set up (I hear that is common) After noticing that I was able to change the mm to inches and then clicked OK again and it let me set up my toolpaths.

Re: STL file not showing as a 3D file

Sorry it took me few days but Here is a screen shot of what I am getting. I just tried to mess with it again and still can't figure it out.

After following the directions above I made sure to click "Ok" Now it lets me start the 3D roughing toolpath but all I get is this second picture.

Re: STL file not showing as a 3D file

Thanks for the replies so far. I got home late so didn't have a chance to look at it. But after reading here I think I forgot to do the boundary! I have done about 10 V3M files. So hopefully it's just a simple boundary mistake. :oops: If it was that you would be getting an error saying "No suitable...
