Re: Need advice on fluting a large area

Can you fixture the acrylic at the slope that you want and cut this with a simple pocket toolpath?
I agree that a fixture is a better solution.

Re: Person in So Cal needed to troubleshoot SB3 software

If you have not called ShopBot support at 1-888-680-4466 that would be a good starting place.

They are very good at walking people through troubleshooting procedures.

Re: VCarve on iMac computer

I'm not recommending VMware Fusion anymore.
I ran VMware for a number of years but ran into a stability problem a few years back. That is why I use Remote Desktop now.

Re: VCarve on iMac computer

Another option is to use Microsoft Remote Desktop on your Mac to log into your shop computer. I know this works with Windows Enterprise edition. You may need to see if it works for your shop PC.

Re: shopbot indexer post

Steve,
I've submitted a request to Vectric support to add a continuous turn toolpath for rotary, based on Milo Scott's method, in a future release.

Re: shopbot indexer post

My output looks different from yours though .
My file was the post processor (.pp) file rather than the output file.

Can you upload the .PP file that you are using so we are looking at the same thing?
