Re: Corner Type working in Draw a Rectangle?

OK figured it out

If the radius of the curve is close to half or greater "It" can't fit them into the rectangle. So it just jumps back to square corners. An error message stating that would have been helpful.

Re: Corner Type working in Draw a Rectangle?

Just created a second new file and it worked.

went back to first file where it didn't work and it still doesn't work on that file.

created a new 3rd file and it works.

So what default/limit could prevent it from rounding corners on a rectangle on the original file?

Re: 3D toolpath - REST machining

While it is much easier to do REST machining in Aspire you can accomplish it in VCarve also. It is labor intensive, but all you have to do is draw vectors around the areas where you want to send a smaller bit. It does involves trial and error. So do your Roughing and finishing toolpaths as normal. T...

Re: Possible to make a single model out of 2-sided job toolpaths?

Off the top of my head there are only two ways to pull this off vectric software. 1) you need a 4th axis CNC and treat the image as if it was wrapped toolpath. I don't have an 4th axis machine so not very experienced with wrapping, someone else in the forum needs to chime in here. OR 2) Create 2 dou...

Re: Possible to make a single model out of 2-sided job toolpaths?

If what you are trying to do looks like the photos in that post, you are out of luck. Vectric software only works on 2 sides anything on the 3rd or 4th side will be flat. as it sounds you are getting. I was hoping Version 10 would allow for 4 sided creation, but at last no joy. There is always hope ...

Re: Possible to make a single model out of 2-sided job toolpaths?

Yes in theory. Before I answered your question I grabbed an alligator clipart image and copied it to the other side. I then told it to export that two sided image to a STL and I could see both sides of the alligator. So it works on my simplified test. So I guess you could create such a complicated c...

Re: Possible to make a single model out of 2-sided job toolpaths?

Good news bad news So I have version 10.022 and there is an option when creating a STL " Close with other side (two-sided jobs only) " which created a double sided STL. Bad news since you have version 9.519 I think it was added to Version 10. I maybe wrong. If you would post the file I could create ...

Re: To Tablet or not to tablet

I have a Wacom Intuos Pro medium size and there is nothing better for sculpting than a pen and tablet. It takes some getting use to and I only use it for sculpting. Getting the "right" settings are a little bit trial and error. Using a mouse involves your elbow and shoulder, not exactly #1 on the li...
