Along with tool templates, I have found that using Vector selector and associating toolpaths to layers is very useful.
That's by far the best way to do it and the way I've done it for years. Recalculate the toolpaths and they apply to whichever sheet you have active.

Re: V11 Copy toolpaths to another sheet

You can export and import toolpaths as templates. When you import you will be given the option to apply to all sheets.

Re: Can't save parameters between jobs

Which toolpath are you using? What do you mean by "return to home"? There's no reason why you shouldn't be able to open an existing file, change some text, recalculate the toolpath and output with no other changes. I've done it multiple times a day with no issues with every version since 2006 so the...

Re: vector validator

Something is amiss with the "m", it checks out OK in Vector Validator, but if you try and VCarve just the "m" you get an error. I went into node editing for the "m", made a cut at the starting node then used the Join Tool to rejoin the now open vector. Now the "m" will carve correctly. It's an odd ...

Re: Rest machine 3d finish path in v11

Try increasing the stepover. An 8% value is ok for a 1/4" and 1/8" ballnose but when you go down to 1/32", especially with a 6% setting, the stepover is a tiny amount which is probably making zero difference to the quality of the cut. You might even find that the second tool is doing nothing unless ...

Re: Tool Database

My first toolpath is a profile cut using a Vcarve installed tool - no problem. My second toolpath is a chamfering toolpath using a form tool that I've created. I can't see the tools I've created when I try to select the tool I need for the 2nd cut. Same reason as the v-carve toolpath. A chamfer too...

Re: Rest machine 3d finish path in v11

You need to upload those pictures at a higher resolution. They're too small to be readable. You could also remove any copyrighted models from the job and attach the actual CRV file. I can see the shape of the tool though and it looks like you're using an engraving bit rather than a ball nose. Is tha...

Re: Rest machine 3d finish path in v11

15" x 12" model with Maximum resolution, 1/4" ballnose at 8% stepover, 1/8" ballnose at 8%, offset strategy on both tools and Rest Machining detail at 0.0043 (what it defaulted to) and it took just over 2 minutes to calculate. I also tried with machining detail at 0.0004 and that took nearly 4 minut...

Re: Geometry Zero

Alignment is done with the alignment tools. The actual XY zero is set in the job setup and relates to the whole job not individual vectors or models.

I'm still not following what the issue is so I'll bow out of this one for now and hope someone else can provide a detailed answer for you.

Re: Geometry Zero

Not sure what you mean. Can you explain a bit more what the difference is? It's not something I've come across personally but I might know it by another term.

Re: Can't select ANY tools in Vcarve Pro 11

Not all tools can be used with all toolpaths. For a v-carve toolpath, for example, you can use v-bits and ballnoses only.

From what you're describing you should be using a profile toolpath, a v-carve toolpath isn't gong to work with a vinyl cutter even if you use a dummy tool.

Re: Box Gadget To Work with VCarve Pro 11

The current box gadget works with VCarve Pro 10.5 but apparently not with11.003. Will a box gadget be made available to work with Ver. 11? Are you running the correct version? A common problem is that people use a Google search to find the downloads and end up downloading a gadget for a different v...

What you are seeing is correct behaviour. You have to define the tool settings for the material/machine combo you are using.

Re: Laser Module scope

Some post processors have a direct output feature that can output code directly to the machine but that still requires a driver on the PC which isn't part of the laser module but rather the specific machine itself.
