please please please add an undo history form

Hi :) I make a lot of mistakes and I use the undo feature alot. How hard would it be for you guys (and gals) at Vectric to add an "Undo History" function, (eg. similar to Inkscape) Screenshot 2021-05-01 153715.jpg which would greatly assist those times when someone has done a whole heap of nudges an...

Re: 3d finishing toolpath operation order

How about if you use concentric circles, and multiple finish toolpaths using the offset strategy, then you could force it to do only the outer 10mm ring first in the first toolpath, then the next and so on?

Re: problem with peck drilling

Hi, no I was in a muddle, but I've solved it now and it does appear to be a bug. When I have project onto 3d model selected then peck drilling behaves as I originally described. I just went through a new project and had toolpaths of both kinds so I could compare. Yes it behaves correctly when projec...

Re: problem with peck drilling

Thanks, yes I know I can speed it up that way but that doesn't really answer my question. My question is that whichever option I choose, three peck drilling retracts all the way out. I want it to just lift up 2mm from where it is then plunge from there for the next peck. It doesn't seem to be doing ...

problem with peck drilling

Hi, it seems that whichever option I choose, (Retract above the cutting start depth) or (Retract above the height of the previous pass) it always retracts above the cutting start depth, making my peck drilling take a long time, as the bit clears the material fully to (it appears) the safe Z height a...

Ok thanks I must have missed that somehow in my angst. Looks like I need to buy a longer bit :wink:

pass depth and 3d finishing toolpath

Hi I'm having a problem with a steep sided 16mm triangular bowl shape that I'm trying to get cut on my cnc router. My 6mm ball endmill only has a pass depth of 12mm. The 2D toolpaths seem to understand pass depth but the 3D finishing toolpath just plain ignores it, so the preview looks great, I save...
