Re: Rounded Toolpath issue

There is a difference in order of operations between the post processor you use for the 10.5 code vs the V11 code. The quick fix is to copy the 10.5 post processor to your V11 installation. Lines 4 and 5 are in different order. In 10.5 it first does a rapid move of the Z (line 4) and then does a rap...

You can also create a post processor that swaps X and Y.

Re: Rounded Toolpath issue

Maybe some one from Vectric can look into this. The best way to ensure to get an official Vectric response is to send an email to support@vectric.com This is a user-to-user support forum, but sometimes the Vectric staff does see and respond. Im not good at reading G-Code If you can put both output ...

Re: Rounded Toolpath issue

Have you compared the output files between the versions? Here is what I get after the spindle On command. Mine uses a G53 to send my Z to the top before it starts cutting. [TOOLPATH NAME: Rounding Toolpath] F120 XY [SET FEEDRATE FOR X AND Y] F120 Z [SET FEEDRATE FOR Z] F{(114.5916)*(120)/(3.000)} A ...

Is there any way I can change the default directory for Clipart installation from the C:\ drive?

Re: Making Dish

What depth increments do you use on a bit like that?
Start with the pass depth at 50% of the cutting edge length.

Feeds and speeds would be similar to an end mill -- which is heavily dependent on you spindle and machine's capability.

Make sure the bit does NOT have a bearing on it.

Re: 4th Axis question

The problem is when I select x it moves off into empty space. I don't understand this. Are you talking about within VCarve, or when you actually cut the design? Can you post a photo of your rotary setup with an indication of X and Y? Have you done some basic test setups to help verify the CAM, post...

Re: Making Dish

I want to try and make a simple dish with a rounded transition from the side wall to bottom.
Use a bowl bit or a bowl bit designed to be used in a CNC machine.

Re: 4th Axis question

So when choosing the orientation in the job setup it should be the X axis (my 4th axis is inline with X) and the Y wrap post processor. However, the file is currently setup Along Y, wrapping X values. WrapAlongY.JPG I believe this is what you want. I've included the modified CRV file. AlongX.JPG

Re: 4th Axis question

Can you post the actual CRV file? That will save a lot of guesswork. Which version of Vcarve are you running? Rotary has changed behavior between V9.0 and V11.0 What post processor are you selecting? Recommendation: Z-zero on the center of the cylinder. It will save you a lot of problems when your b...
