Re: Cutting Inside and Outside the Line

Imagine yourself standing on the start point of the line. As you walk down the line, outside will be on the right and inside will be on the left.

Re: Vcarve Desktop toolpath preview

Works okay for me too. Are you sure you are selecting "Preview All Sides"?

Re: Just another bowl

Very nice looking bowl. Andrew Pitts. on YouTube, made a bowl that is similar. His video may give you some insight on how to make the base. Around 14 minutes into the video he shows how he made the base but there are some steps he did before that you may want to do first. https://www.youtube.com/wat...

Re: Paradise boxes for the grandkids

Randall,
I think that making a Paradise Box is sort of a "right of passage". Everyone has to make one to be a true Vectrican. Your version is absolutely stunning.

Re: Child's rocking chair

I am just a hobbyist and really enjoy doing these kind of projects. Did you design it your self or adapt it from another plan? The wood looks like Walnut?

OBTW: Really nice job.

Re: Square outside corners

The allowance offset is causing the problem. When set to 0 the toolpath will produce square corners. Not sure why until I do a little research.

Re: Keeping toolpaths from being unchecked

Why not just give each toolpath an appropriate and descriptive name?

Re: One way tool path?

Why would one computer, same version vcarve 10.5, produce a toolpath different than the other computer? I don't have an answer for that. DXF files come in various flavors and some computers could handle them differently depending on hardware. If you close all of the vectors in your file everything ...

Re: One way tool path?

If you use the "Select Open Vectors" tool it will select nearly all of the vectors. The Vector Validator shows only 2 overlaps. There may be some oddities in the DXF file.
