Beki's Top Tip
Did you know that you can view your toolpaths in the 2D View in two different ways? By default you can view the toolpath as a Wireframe Drawing that shows you the direction of the toolpath using arrow indicators, or you can opt to choose a Solid Preview that colours in the area that will be machined away! Simply Toggle between the two options from the Top View Toolbar!

Ted Reischl Beam Compass | Case Study

The project started with a need for a good beam compass. As I started to work on it for some reason my brother in law came to mind. He is a superb woodcarver, furniture builder and a teacher. The holidays were coming up and I thought it would make a nice gift. I could not just wrap up a beam compass in some paper and hand it to him, so a box was needed.
