Re: Ver 11 "Profile Toolpath Start Depth" bug

Are you working in metric or imperial units? I ask, because if you are working in metric and that is a ball nose cutter, the software will definitely put the radius of the ball on the line you specified. So the deeper you go, the more the tool will "move over". When I say "radius", that means the ra...

Re: Problem with the pocketing Toolpath

It is all about controlling the vectors. You must become one with the vectors.

Re: Rough edges

Two things help:

Add a slight draft angle and do a little bit of overall smoothing.

What is happening is the tool is falling over the edge of a cliff.

Re: I'm sure someone can help me

No idea, without a file, or pictures it is very difficult to figure out what the problem is.

We can all sit here an guess away, which is sometimes fun, but most often is not.

Re: CNC Lathe

That is a pretty nice build you have going there. As I mentioned before I have not found or seen a good way to create lathe toolpaths in Vectric products. It is tedious at best and really prone to problems. One of the problems that has plagued me since forever is the following: If you draw several c...

Re: Inside Contours Not Cutting To Correct Dimension

Never heard of a "guardband". Is that something you made up? I have cut lots of box joints, never had an issue. So, my answer would be no, there is nothing in the software that would do what you describe. That said, the sure way to figure out where the problem lies is to read the gcode. It is not th...

Re: Circle Edit Dimensions Issue

Welp. . . it is not much of a bug, or even an anomaly. I am still using 4.5, LOL. Of course, I do not do much if any design work within Aspire. The only time I use the tools is when I want to change something minor. A word of advice to all of us, using words like: silly, ridiculous, stupid, etc are ...

Re: Circle Edit Dimensions Issue

I dunno, I am not seeing any of this on the trial version 11. Drew a .0305 circle. Changed it to .0306 and hit apply. It changed. That said, there are certain points where it will NOT change. This is apparent because the Apply button is not active. This certainly has to do with what Adze was discuss...

LOL, that is a good one! Ol' Murphy over there ----------------> loves going to the vet. All I have to say is "Let's go see the girls" and he heads over for his leash.

Re: Circle Edit Dimensions Issue

From Vectric Support: "Currently the smallest increments by which you can edit the dimensions of an existing shape are hundredths of an inch/mm. Changes to the third decimal place are outside of the tolerances allowed by the software which will automatically round up or down." Right off the bat, th...

Re: G code question

Or, if all that fails, try G0Z0.5

That may not work either, LOL.

Or, it may be finicky in that it wants all the decimal places. eg.: Z0.5000

Re: CNC Lathe

This is sort of a side comment to this discussion. . . . Running a cnc lathe is not something a newbie should attempt. On a milling machine or router, a crash is nasty, on a lathe it is apocalyptic!. Hitting a set of jaws turning at 2000 rpm with a tool, collet or any other part of the machine is in...
