Re: Z Height Limit

I'm using Aspire and my post processors are in:

C:\ProgramData\Vectric\Aspire\V11.5\PostP

The best way is to open VCarve, go the the file menu and select " Open Application Data Folder".

Re: Z Height Limit

Just a regular text editor like Notepad should work. Scroll to the bottom and you should see the offending line.

Re: Z Height Limit

If I understand the problem correctly, I would start with the post processor. Check to see what commands are used at the end of the toolpath.

Re: How to draw a V shaped slot.

Not enough information for a reply. Otherwise, just guessing. Actual file, drawing pictures?

Re: Creating a lip or recessed profile cut?

Why not just use a moulding toolpath for the roundover. I use it all the time.

Re: Low resolution or am I doing something wrong

Sometimes double posts happen to me also. After clicking on the Submit button, there is a lag and the message appears to "unposted" so I'll click on the button again. Then the forum won't allow a delete. It is a good idea to be careful to not post the same message in other parts of the forum but, it...

Re: Design and Make

You can position the project in the material using the "Set" button on the toolpath tab. Use the slider or type in values.

Re: Low resolution or am I doing something wrong

When creating the project, be sure the size is just slightly larger than the finished project will be. Also, set the project resolution in the setup screen BEFORE importing or designing anything. You can increase the resolution after importing but it will have no effect on what is already in the pro...

Re: Sperate Last Pass... Not working

This is from the help file: Do Separate Last Pass A separate allowance can be specified for the last pass. If this allowance is given then all but the last pass will be undercut by the specified allowance with the final pass being the only pass which cuts to size. Note This is intended to be just a ...

Re: Pocket holes with flat sides

They were probably imported. I does seem a little strange that when I first opened his file and changed the simulation view it seemed to fix the problem.I think there is more going on under the covers than meets the eye. Anyway, replacing the circles with true circles is relatively easy and may avoi...

Re: VCarve on iMac computer

Vectric software is designed for Windows only and will not run on a Mac. Otherwise, the only way that I know of is to install windows on a virtual machine like VMware or Parallels or set up Boot Camp to dual boot the Mac and install windows. There have been problems doing this on the latest version ...

Re: Pocket holes with flat sides

As Randall has suggested, change the circles to true circles and the problem seems to go away.

Re: shopbot indexer post

That's a great idea Randall but it might be a little difficult for beginners to understand the wrapping gadget. Especially using it in place of a 3D toolpath. Milo does explain it in detail though.

Re: Pocket holes with flat sides

Set your toolpath preview simulation quality to a higher resolution. It's on the toolpaths menu at the top of the screen.
