how to profile cut hexagon pattern half of material depth

Post by David2180 »

I'm trying to cut/carve the hexagon pattern to a depth of .13" in this file, the material depth is .23", I've tried a profile cut to only the depth but having no luck, I've joined the vectors but still no luck, does anyone have input as to the solution here? I can profile cut all my outside lines ok, I even tried the vcarve function but no luck.

Use a profile cut with a v-bit on the line. In the example I moved the hex pattern to a new level for easier selection.
