Re: Is there a easy way to post your gcode with a rotation factor?

I'm not sure that I understand the question completely but in the job setup screen you can switch orientations and the software will convert everything for you.

Vectric Technical Support

A week or so ago there was some discussion here on the forum about creating a component from a toolpath preview. I sent my project to technical support and they responded quickly with a solution that satisfied me so I posted it here so others could get the benefit also and I thought no more of it. T...

Re: Another Staved Project

It's plain to see that this project took a lot of planning and assembly time. FWIW, am very impressed.

Michael has some really great projects and your version of the "Crayon Clock" turned out very nice. My complements to your wife on the painting.

Re: V11 Installing 11.005 Patch

Mine failed also until I disabled Malwarebytes. I always have to temporarily disable it when installing upgrades. It is possible to include the installer in the "Allow List" but since the installer names aren't always the same it's just easier to temporarily disable it.

Re: V11 - Create Component from Toolpath preview - Glitch?

Thanks for the replies, guys! One thing I forgot to mention was that I was using a moulding toolpath to create my model, whereas I normally use the Create Shape tools when I make a model, and I had never used a moulding toolpath before, so I am unfamiliar with how it would "normally" be done and lo...

The same thing happens with me. I think Vectric needs to take a look at it.

Re: new user not sure where to start

To view the toolpaths setup, double click on the toolpath name and that will bring up the toolpath setup screen. On the left side there will be lines (vectors) in red that are associated with the toolpath. Text fonts are usually made up of 2 lines separated by a small space. That space determines ho...
