Re: Excessive Carving in Finish Pass

Why are you cutting that as 3D job? Looks all 2D to me.

If you really want to do it as a 3D job then you can use vectors to limit the machining area.

Re: V-Carve Inlay Tear Out

The tool database will do the chip load calculations for you if you know the chipload range from the manufacturers tables.

Re: Creating a component that the modeling tool will accept

All I can think is that you're either not pressing the Join button when using the join tool as it won't actually join the vectors until you do so or you're not selecting the vector when activating the Create Shape tool. Those are the only two ways I can replicate what you're seeing from your descrip...

Here is the error message I'm getting when trying to open the file.
You'll need to send that file to support as Mark says and they can tell you what the issue is. That particular error is nothing that normal users like me and Martin can help you with.

Re: Why does it squeal a bit?

The rule of thumb with spiral bits is if they are squealing they are hungry for fresh material. You need to speed the feed rate up, increase the pass depth or slow the RPM's down. The changes you've made are in the wrong direction to stop the squealing. Depending on the job it's often hard to get it...

If you can't open the CRV file you should be getting a message telling you why not or at least giving you an error number.

Re: French Cleat - How to efficiently cut?

Depends on the dimensions, the size of bit available, how many are being cut in one go and a few other factors that I probably haven't thought of. The most efficient way is to use a profile cut with the 90 degree bit so you end up with two pieces with a 45 on them (unless you're cutting on the edge)...

Re: Transferring really old designs to V11

STL files become components once they are imported so you can open the old VCarve files and you can copy/paste the components between open VCarve sessions to build new jobs if needed.

Re: Transferring really old designs to V11

You can export/import toolpaths as templates via the relevant icons on the toolpath tab if you need to.

Re: Nesting

From memory it's been in every version of VCarve since around V4/V5 and with Cut2D it was the first unified release which would have been 8 I believe.

Re: Why no 3d tabs check box sometimes?

It works on a per toolpath basis so it can be on for one toolpath and off for the other in the same job.

Re: Drawings resized?

Need more information really. What do you mean by loaded up? Did you import a file from (DXF, EPS, etc) another application? Was it a file that you created and saved from VCarve and it resized when you re-opened it? I'll guess that you're importing/opening a DXF file. The most likely answer is that ...

Re: Creating a component that the modeling tool will accept

With the join tool the issue is most likely the tolerance value. With the other join tools if you're getting results that seem odd then it's most likely that you need to move the start node on one of the vectors if it's not joining where you expect it to. Why is the vector made up of so many open ve...

Re: Creating a component that the modeling tool will accept

He won't be able to share the file as it's the trial edition. Files created with that will only open on the computer they were created on.

Not sure what is going on as you seem to be saying that you can't select the vector at all. You haven't locked the layer you put it on have you?
