Moulding Toolpath - V8.5

Post by JamesB »

I cut a sample part today in the Vectric Labs using the new Moulding Toolpath feature in V8.5. I think it came out well, part was cut out of a 26" x 11" x 1.375" board. The Rough cut was done with 0.25" End Mill. Finish with a 0.25" Ballnose, cut out with the End Mill again. Roughing time was under 9 minutes and finish around 28 minutes (8% stepover - 180 IPM). If you want to see a video on how the new feature works check out the What's New in VCarve 8.5 page (this is also available in Aspire 8.5 too) - http://www.vectric.com/products/vcp/wha ... s-new.html

Cheers,
James
