Stray 3d Cut Lines

Post by mbsquires »

I'm using Desktop, and I am trying to cut the lilies from the free download (Lily_Bunch_2-57845-A.v3m). My finishing cut looks has multiple "stray cuts" that go outside the model. Probably adds over an hour to the cut time.

Any idea what's going on?

That doesn't look any 3D roughing/finish toolpath that I've seen. You need to attach the CRV file or screenshots of the toolpath dialogs etc so we can see what settings you're using.

At a guess it looks you've created vectors from the 3D model and then used a v-carve toolpath on it. With a 3D model you use the 3D rough/finish toolpaths.

You've posted in the wrong section of the forum if you're using VCarve Desktop. This section is for the Cut3D product. Not a major issue but it might reduce the number of responses you will get.
