Re: Folding Miter Box Edges

[quote="rscrawford"]You should really look at a 90 degree v-bit that is wide enough to cut in a single pass. Really simplifies making these boxes. Then just do a profile cut 'on the line' at full depth. Here is a batch of 3 boxes I made. Cut out in about 5 minutes. Fit like a glove. I used the maski...

VCarve 10 Pro - 3D Modeling - Clipping - Display Results

Hi, I just installed the upgrade and jumped into the Clipping option in 3D Modelling. It worked great! However, in my test example I decided to change the vector to a different one. - I removed clipping from the level. - Selected the new vector - Enabling clipping again - The visible result was stil...

Re: New version 9.5

I just downloaded the main update file for 9.5 on the same machine I have for 9.0. All of my settings migrated smoothly. When I viewed the clip art it seemed to be all there. Browsing through the clip are I noticed some news ones that had the download symbol overplayed on the icon. Clicking on a cli...

Re: Observation - Renaming ToolPaths no save prompt when exi

Generally though, any changes to a file prompts you on exit if you forget to save. I just thought is was interesting this particular change did not trigger the prompt.

Observation - Renaming ToolPaths no save prompt when exiting

Today I was finishing up a project and decided I should rename the tool paths to make sure I complete them in the correct order. I renamed them, saved out the tool paths and then exited VCP (V9.x) without saving (and was not promoted to save). I went back into make a slight change and noticed my too...

Re: Linux CNC / EMC2 Processors

I have a Wells Index CNC (looks like a large Bridgeport) that I am running with Linux CNC. I made two processors, one for X/Y/Z and the other for X/Y/Z/A that has the A wrapped around the X-axis. So far it has tested quite well... and I can run both wrapped and unwrapped G-Code at the same time. In...

Re: Moulding Toolpath Error Message

Hi,

Did you try reversing the profile or rail to see if the error goes away? That option is available on the drawing when you edit the moulding tool path.

Re: Importing VCarve File into Final Design

Thanks to support my problem was resolved.

"... you need to make sure that all layers in your design are set to Visible before saving it to be imported.
If a Layer is set to hidden then the Vectors will be moved to Layer 1 in the import."

I overlooked that.

Importing VCarve File into Final Design

Hi, I created a project that has multiple parts. I created separate files to help me keep organized. Also, keeping in mind when I finalize the project I would combine them; if possible. So I make sure I use layers, constant orientation etc. After finishing the design I went to import (file->import->...

This was a fun little project. I saw a video on youtube (legacy cnc: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4Nai-tNz9c ) and there was a link to the vcarve files. The only thing I really had to do was update the toolpaths with my tools. Came out pretty good. The only disappoint was I recently updated my r...
