Sorry, I have been out of town for most of this week, the moving thing and all. About photos of famous people, or things like pictures of race cars. Typically, the photographer or the company he works for holds the copyright. In other words, you can go down to the track, take a picture of the car or...

About Copyrighted Material

I am not an attorney, nor do I play one on TV, or on this forum. However, I have copyrighted material in the past and am somewhat familiar with the subject. Copyright essentially revolves around something called "prior art". In a nutshell, that means you need to be able to demonstrate that no one ha...

Huh what?

If locking a layer makes it useless for you, then why bother locking it?

Not sure what you are talking about. . . . .

Can't help you on the brass, BUT. . . one thing I would do for sure is proof the program on some less expensive stock first.

You probably did not need to be told that, but sometimes, in the heat of the moment, one just dives in. . . .

Hi Ray, To get clipart from Corel to Vectric is very simple. Just select the clipart and then export it as an EPS file. Once you get to VCarve, import the EPS file. Be aware that "clipart" comes in two varieties, vector and raster. Vector is what you want. Raster is bitmapped images and as such do n...

I like Houstons idea about a forum section for tool shapes. Due to the rake angle, most router bits cannot be directly measured. This would be great for some of the more complex cutters that are not just round overs or straight cuts.

Great idea!

There are some posts on the forums concerning cutting stone. Yes it can be done. Some things you need to be aware of: Dust, WOW! You will need to protect yourself and the machine. Cutting with a coolant will definitely help, but your machine needs to be set up for it. Cutters, it will eat them of co...

Dual monitors are great. But I am happy with VCarve being on just one screen, and here is why: I run VCarve on one monitor and I run Corel X3 on the other. Since I am very used to editing and creating in Corel I find it much easier for me to do any touch ups there and just hit Save As, then reimport...

My only comment is that the machine does not go into "absolute mode" relative to CV. It goes into Exact Stop mode if CV is off.

Absolute mode has nothing to do with Constant Velocity.

I just posted this so we don't toss around terms that confuse the matter even further.

Replies: 4
Views: 3745

It is tough to give out formulae for speeds and feeds. Machines vary widely in their rigidity, horsepower at the spindle, etc. In addition, different makes of bits perform differently. It also depends on your depth of cut. So, there are a lot of variables, and hence no hard and fast formula for calc...

Hi Tim,

Here is a thought for you, try searching on the web for Windsor Chairs. Most of them use the type of seat you are talking about. Mike Dunbar runs the Windsor Institute in New Hampshire, his site may have something or possibly one of his books on chair making?

One thing you CAN do Ray, is to take a read of the cnc code. What you are looking for is moves with Z in them. At the start of the program, you will have a few Z's that are positive. If you set your Z zero in VCarve to be the surface of your workpiece, then all cutting moves will be Z - Reading the ...
