Re: Need Help With Clip Art Library

I've had times when Windows Defender (firewall) has blocked the downloads. That might be worth investigating.

How do we create a toolpath once we upload a file such as an SVG?
Watch the tutorial on 2D Toolpaths.

All of the videos are well done and will answer many questions. Not only watch them, but follow along in the program.

Re: Laser Preview Not Working on V11.554

The Move Speed is set to 140, but the Maximum Burn Rate is set to 1. Set the Maximum Burn Rate to 140, recalculate, and run the preview.

To see how Maximum Burn Rate affects the preview try it at 140, 70, 35, and 15. Remember to recalculate and rerun the preview after each change.

Everything looks okay to me. Maybe they fixed it.
If I view it in Chrome on Mac it does not render correctly. If I use Safari on Mac it renders correctly.

Selecting the GRBL mm post processor should work for you.

Re: Profile cut 1.5 Material, Endmill Recommendation

I would not recommend using a 0.125" diameter bit for profile cuts in 1.5" wood.
My preference is to profile with a 0.5" diameter bit for wood more than 1" thick, though I sometimes use a 0.25" diameter bit if it has a long enough cutting edge length.
