Re: V-Carve under veneer - how to set depth?

If you touch and zero your z axis as a positive .030 and not .00,would this cause the offset you are looking for ?

Re: Rookie: just want to cut out a profile

I am not sure this will give you what you desire but it may. I just tried the demo version and this is what I did. I used the rooster and did the outside profile cut out by generating all tool paths. Then I went back and turned off roughing and finishing tool paths and previewed cut out only. I then...

Re: Crib Board Question

Bob Another thing you might try is to increase your plunge speed and initial peck depth, the increased plunge rate will cause the bit to bite into the wood without giving it a chance to wonder around if that makes sense to you. A spot drill (center drill ) first would also help start a 90 degree dri...

Re: Crib Board Question

Hi Bob

Yes that is a stubby or screw machine drill, a split point is ground at 135 degree included angle.

Re: Crib Board Question

The short drill bits are known as screw machine drill bit or stub drill, a split point drill does not need a center first to start accurately.
Here is a link to 1 place that carries them.

Re: Photo vcarve help

For a picture I usually use a line spacing of between 120% to 135% and a depth of .025 to .040. The line spacing and depth of cut needs to be wide enough that it does not overlap the previous line. Hope this helps some.
