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.

Re: new user not sure where to start

There's no toolpath in that file for the text so no way to tell what you did wrong. Looking at the other toolpaths I would guess that you used a ball nose/end mill bit with the v-carve toolpath which would give the sort of result you got. An actual v-bit would give you the result you're probably aft...

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

Tool settings are associated with the selected Material and the selected machine. Until you have created the settings for that combination the tools will be greyed out. Select a greyed out tool and the Copy Settings From section will appear. Click Copy and change any settings you need and you're goo...

Re: Multi-Sheet Questions

You can't preview all sheets in one go. You can only ever preview the active sheet and the toolpaths associated with it. Grouping and copying works fine for me. The groups are preserved. If you mean selecting individual vectors and copying as a selection then the selection is lost when you switch sh...

Re: new user not sure where to start

If you're still using the same font that you were in the first pictures then it looks like you've generated a v-carve toolpath but you've used an endmill for the actual cut instead.

As said though you really need to attach your VCarve (CRV) file so we can see how you've set things up.

Re: svg files

Not sure what you mean by "online store files" but I use SVG files all the time with no issues. It's one of the best import/export formats to use as it fully supports layers and curves.

Version 11 will not run on my old Windows XP and so I will wait.
I assume you mean you will wait until you upgrade your Windows version? From V11 onwards the Vectric software won't run on XP.

Re: Aspire v11

There is currently an issue with v11 in that it's not always showing clipart that is stored in the cloud as previous versions did. Are you sure the clipart is installed locally as it should be displaying correctly in the Clipart tab if you have the folder links there still? You can verify what clipa...

I had to download and re-install all clip art to get it to display in 11.0.
There is an issue with the display of clipart stored in the cloud rather than locally. Vectric are aware of it and looking into it.

Re: Help Me Justify Upgrading to V11

People ask these sort of questions all the time but really the only person who can answer is the person asking the question. Watch the What's New videos and see if anything leaps out to you. For what it's worth if you're not interested in 3D or the multiple sheets I wouldn't think it's worth the upg...

Re: How to assign color inside the toolpath

You have to create a dummy pocket toolpath to remove the material inside the circle and set the colour on that toolpath.

Re: Compairing "add dimensions" to object size

Also it's important to select the correct dimension setting which relates to what Steven is saying as well. Take a 50mm square for example. It will measure as 50mm in every tool and setting. However rotate it 1 degree and it will now measure 50.865mm when selected or in the resize tool as the select...

Re: Compairing "add dimensions" to object size

I use that tool a lot and I've never noticed it showing dimensions differently to how any of the other tools show them as far as 2D goes.

I'd be interested in seeing a file showing the behaviour to get to the bottom of it.

Re: Missing Toolpath List in Preview

Do you mean the toolpath operations? That's a toggle in Options on the edit menu. If you mean the actual list of toolpaths than that's there for me. Have you setup multiple sheets? By default you will only see the toolpaths for the active sheet so you may need to switch to the All Sheets view or the...
