Please correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that the arc post generate smaller amount of code hence the smoother cut. For straight cuts, either post will do the same work. Say you cut a batch of letters, the arc post will generate smaller toolpath file for the same work and the CNC control box will...

I did so with my ShopBot posts so I believe you also can with the Mach posts. I recommend you contact Vectric for this special request. I personally don't want to be responsible if something go wrong at your end... If you decide to tweak the post(s) yourself or with the help of Vectric or someone el...

The fact that the Cut 3D doesn't machine the material face of a sliced model is actually intended (I hope :roll: ) and I for one want to keep it that way!... at least as an option. Think of how much time saving this is... when you got consistent material thickness. The key point about working with s...

That can mean the trigo. is wrong... -the bit doesn't have the supposed angle: i.e. 60° is actually 59°. That can be difficult to accurately check. :? -the bit is tipped off; it has a small flat tip. If you have a spec. for the tip flat good but if not good luck! With some trial tests you should get...

With the attached test model with a cut plane at 1.1" (from top) and material of 1.1 thickness, I was able to cut just the contour of the whole model which is an assembly made in Blender and export as 3DS format. I'm working with 1.402 release. There seem to be an resolution thing going on in Cut 3D...

This is my understanding of how 'Join' and 'Close' function work; you can only close ONE selected vector at a time. If you have more than one selected vector, you need to join them first before closing the assembly. You cannot join more than two selected vector at a time as well. It may seem odd but...

Re: 2-sided Machining with non-planar split line?

Hi, Is it possible to machine 2 sides of a model like this? Sure it can be done! The only way I can think of to do it would be generate two separate one-sided toolpaths with the model centered in the material. Any ideas? Thanks, Jacob That the way I would do it. What are the dimensions of this part...
