Multiple Clearance Tools - Coming Soon to Version 10

Post by Stephanie Downing »

Here's another sneak peek at what's coming soon in Version 10...

The VCarve toolpath will support multiple clearance tools for more efficient area clearance. This can help shorten machining time and reduce tool wear.

Using multiple tools means you can use a much larger area clearance tool and intermediate V-Bit tools to ensure that the fine detail tool only needs to remove the smallest amount of material possible. :D

Yeah, it's good to see restful machining finally included... but I still think Vectric tool paths are seriously lacking.
