Job (Material) Setup Screen

Everyday I learn more and more about VCP, and I continue to be impressed with this product. But here's my current puzzle. After the material size is established in the Job Setup Screen (JSS) and you hit "enter"... 1. Is there a way to change the material size without exiting VCP and starting over? 2...

A very well designed and executed sign. Now the hat...uh, well, looks like it would keep the wood chips and sawdust out of your hair. 8)

Cut Out Letters

Cut Out Letters 1. The tutorial about beveled edges around lettering shows some functions that I cannot find in VCP 5.5, namely "sharp inside corners" and "sharp outside corners". Have these features disappeared in VCP 5.5 - if not, where can they be found? 2. I thought perhaps "prism carving" repla...

Re: Newbie q: inside and outside cuts in same cut file?

Thanks, Mark and Metalworkz. Looks like it was operator error (me) :| . I also had a pocketing operation to provide a shallow hole to hold magnets in the dust shoe...and there was a different tool that had somehow slipped in.

I am making a dust shoe which is basically a rounded off rectangle with two circles cut out of it, using a .25 end mill for all cuts. The rounded off rectangle is being cut on the outside with tabs, and the circles are being cut off to the inside, also with tabs. I have a machine without a tool chan...

Problems with Bullshead pub sign

New guy here...I am trying to learn the VCP trial program so I can take the plunge on the real thing, but I am having problems with the Bullshead pub sign. By the time I get to line 5000, the cutter is cutting air. I realize that this program has been run many times, and is probably perfect, but I w...
