Re: Creating dished heart shape

It would really help if you could include your file with the post so we can see how you set it up and the bits you used.

Re: Import a Rhino model - how do I do it.

I imported it with no apparent problems. I had to reduce the size as the stl was huge. If you need it to be a different size just let me know.

Re: Rummoli board

This should get you started on making your own. You may have to buy some of the bits or substitute some for the ones that you have. Magnate.net has all of the bits I used.

Ted/Leo

Send me the file and I'll see what I can do. I have Rhino 6 and Aspire 10.5. Ted, I think you already have my email address.

Re: Moulding toolpath

Did you check the position of the model in the material on the toolpath tab? Also there is a toolpath position in the moulding toolpath itself.

Re: cutting 4 flat surfaces

Something like this? With a project of 4" diameter and 12" long I created 2 boxes. One 3.5" and the other 2". Then I used the vector un-wrapper on each and used a 2-rail sweep with the profiles created by the un-wrapper at each end. Might need to play around with (or add) profiles to achieve differe...

Re: “Beer” flights

Re: making a dome is Vcarve Desktop

It might be a better approach to adjust the height of the dome and the Fleur to what ever looks good and then set the overall height of the model to .75" in the modeling tab. Don't forget to check the position of the model in the material on the toolpath tab. Unless I missed something I don't think ...

Re: making a dome is Vcarve Desktop

Something like this? By your description, I'm not sure of what you want or the clipart you want to use. I placed and sized the dome first and placed the clipart on top of the dome. Then I created a vector around the dome, selected both the dome and the vector and set the level to clipping..

Re: One inside corner oversized

Try adding a node in the center of one side and make it the start point. Change the toolpath to ramp plunge moves for 2". See if the side is even and straight up when it's finished.
