Vcarve Pro 10 and a rotary axis

Post by rhammans »

I'm getting my 4th axis set up and trying to create a simple profile in vcarve pro 10 to generate toolpaths from. But there doesn't seem to be a tutorial covering this for v.10. All the others versions have menu items that aren't in 10. Has anyone here made or seen a good video about this? Here's a screenshot of where I'm at. I have it in 2d but it's not arrayed up the screen, and not showing on the 3d tab

In the VCarve program go to Help/Video Tutorial Browser
In the browser window under Tutorial Categories click on Wrapped Rotary Machining
Scroll down to see 7 video tutorials.
