Error codes

Post by tmoore4049 »

I'm getting the error attached below. I see no reason this should be happening. Any ideas. I'm profile cutting .25 slots with .25 bit. Numerous other matching
profiles in file. I'm confused :cry:

Thanks Gary. I actually reduced it to .235 and still getting same message. I have 18 similar vectors on same file and this is the only one getting me. See attached

Likely “bad” vectors. Use the Vector Validator tool to see where the problem is and then make corrections. Also check for open vectors.

Ok. Post your actual Vectric file here so we can take a look at it directly.

If the file is too large, post it at your DropBox account and post the download link here. Thx

Change your stepover to 1%, recalc, then see if that works for you. Oh, and you can enter the diameter of the bit as 0.25", no problem.

Hmm. Are you running Desktop or Pro? What is the version number you are running?

I just tested the one you had highlighted. It worked fine. However, three of your profiles are Open vectors! Close them and you should be good to go. (I’ll try it myself in a few minutes, to confirm)

Do you know how to find open vectors yourself? Hint: It’s not by zooming in)

EDIT: I just tested all the profiles after closing the 3 open ones. Works perfectly! (see screenshot)

Thank you for your time. PRO 9.5. I ran vector check and it shows no intersections, overlaps or opens? At this point I guess I'm going to have to redraw outline? I'm outta ideas.

No need to redraw anything.

You find the open vectors in 5 seconds or less by going to the Edit menu, then choose Selection/Select All Open Vectors

Now you’ll see the 3 open profiles selected. Now you can select them one at a time and click the “Join/Close - vectors by moving end points to common point” icon. (Note: pressing “J” on the keyboard will join a couple of those but not the third one. In case anybody was wondering!)

After that, you should be able to calculate your profile cuts with no problem. Holler if you still can't do it yourself. I'll post the corrected file if needed.
