Re: Truncated Cone

Started my own gadget for truncated cone before coming across this post. I used a program for cones for the waterjet I operated in a sheetmetal fabrication shop and miss having it. Did all my calculations in VB.net and verified in Solidworks. Now I need to transfer everything to Lua. This is an exer...

Re: programming: error message

:oops: the dxf file does import into the current VCarve job but then displays the error mssg. Do I need to sign the dxf file to a CadContourObject, or is there another method of importing vector files?
Thanks for the help.

Re: VCarvePro Gadget SDK and LUA

Downloaded the SDK but could not install.
Anyone know what the requirements are to run the SDK? Hardware, OS, other programs, etc. ? Tried installing on my home computer with Windows Home Vista, Vectric software not on this computer.
Hope the forum/blog for the gadget site opens soon.

Re: Can't achieve sharp external corners

Best way is to manually change it in the G-Code. In the line of code you want the sharp corner, type in G61. Type in G64 in the line of code you want the machine to return to Constant Velocity. Example: N0110 G0 G61 X21 Y12 N0120 G0 Y6 N0140 G0 G64 X0 This will put a sharp corner at X21 Y12 and at X...

Re: Help setting Z-Zero

I have never seen this method posted ANYWHERE and I am on almost every CNC type forum. I can't believe I am the only one using this method! I lower my Z-axis close to the surface. At that point, I turn off the power to the power supply, effectively turning off the motors. Using a crank handle on the...

Re: Free Project - "Vintage Wooden Spoon Wall Rack"

Why can't the project be adapted to earlier versions (I do have v6) for those her can't afford to upgrade? Backward compatibility would seem a "must have" (unless you're Microsoft!)

Excellent design. Keep the projects coming.

Re: Help Converting Files

The attached image is from 3DmodelClub's free sample download page. It shows several file formats other than STL and RLF, including V3D. In one of my "past lives" a was a software programmer. I understand the difficulties of converting one file format to another. A lot of software has proprietary fi...

Re: Help Converting Files

Who's James and what free software? I have VCarvePro, not Aspire. I have a job that needs to be completed and I'm just trying to find help getting it done. If my neighbor had the software necessary to do the job, and he did it for me, no one would think anything of it. If I purchased a pattern for a...

Re: Help Converting Files

Doing what you ask would be questionable from a legal/copyright point of view. On their information page it says they can supply models in .v3D format. I suggest you contact them with your purchase information and ask if they can supply the second format. I am assuming you don't have Cut3D or else ...
