Re: Double sided tape?.....

I have been using this method for over a year. MDF spoil board, wood and plastic. Never had a failure! Good luck!!!

Re: Double sided tape?.....

Use painters blue tape and thin superglue. Once you try it you won't ever go back to any kind of tape! It just will not let go when force is applied laterally yet, it is easy to remove by lifting vertically and no cleanup.

Separate Toolpaths

Is there a good way to separate related groups of tool paths that may or may not be used in a file? Up to now I have just been creating a duplicate tool path, renaming it --------- and then placing it as a divider. This works but there should be a more elegant way!

Re: Toolpath Summary

I was running it from the Toolpaths menu. However, I went to the place where you said there was a modified version. Deleting the file in that location did not solve the problem. The program did not revert back to the default location. So, the next step was to go to the default location you specified...

Toolpath Summary

I have not used this since doing the latest upgrade. Today I tried it and I get an error message. I am attaching a screenshot. Anyone seen this? Suggestions? Thanks.

Node Editing/Bezier and Smoothing

Would someone please explain the difference in making a node a bezier vs. smoothing the node? When is one more appropriate then the other? I would really appreciate an explanation! Thanks!

Dealt DW621 Router

Anyone have a dxf of the base of a Dewalt DW621 router? It is an unusual design and, I think, difficult to be able to draw it! Any help would be most appreciated!

Re: An anomaly!

Gary - I agree with you but there are times when I want to go from the top. I have been using this file (and others like it) for some time and never experienced this issue. Adrian - You are right in that the software should not be doing what it is doing. If the problem is in the file I posted I cert...

An anomaly!

I am having a problem that I have never seen before. I have attached the file. In essence, if you set 0 to the machine bed to machine the first two toolpaths all works fine. Later I wish to do the inlay from the top of the material and not the machine bed. If I change that setting in the toolpath ta...

V9 Bug (a small one)

In V9, on my Windows 10 computer, if I launch an Aspire file that has a note in it, the splash screen never shuts. It hangs open until I can click on the note and then it finishes loading. On my computer I can just barely see the note screen to be able to shut it. Easy enough fix by turning the spla...

Re: G-codes and V-carve question

Mick Martin has created a free program to mill the spoil board. Assuming that your machine is set up properly use his little program. It works great! Get it at http://mickmartinwoodworking.com/cnc/downloads/.
