Re: Can I move a start point on a toolpath?

I confirmed that at least for my machine (Axiom) the quick engrave toolpath does not work properly for outline of lettering. When I used the profile toolpath everything works as expected.

Thanks for all the help.

Re: Can I move a start point on a toolpath?

Okay I am using an end mill toolpath modified to the Laser. This was what Jtech told me to do. Looking for the area to change what you have suggested....very sorry to not be getting this. I put a short drawing file in a response with just one word. Quick engrave is the toolpath selected. I found it!...

Re: Can I move a start point on a toolpath?

I read the instruction on node editing which I have done before. However the starting point I put in didn't seem to change the location....looking at this further.

When I reduced the file down I noticed the starting point moved for the "e" however the "w" looks in the same spot.

Re: Can I move a start point on a toolpath?

Yes I did the vector validator and okay. drawing file is too large to post I guess. (6 Meg)

Seems to be start point is an acute angle 90 degrees or less.

Re: Can I move a start point on a toolpath?

Okay I think this problem I have is related to the start point being put in the wrong place. Though not sure.

Re: Support Pages and Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a way to import a bit profile that is different from the standard tools listed?

An example is a whiteside SC55 engraving bit but with a 45Deg point on the end.
