Re: Does anyone use Vcarve Pro?

David, One thing I have done is selected the paths that I wanted to post with a G41, calculate those then the paths I wanted G42 and calculate those since vectric lets you post tool paths separately, I post the the paths with the PP G41 or G42 then copy them into the same file, maybe this helps a li...

Re: Does anyone use Vcarve Pro?

Contacted Vectric about radius comp. They have no plan to add this feature. Josh, How do you handle radius comp? I have VCarve jobs that I have been running for the past 3 years. The parts don't change. Just encountered a fit problem because I switched to a sharpened tool. I've always entered the n...

I should also add, the way I use this post is I nest the parts in the program, using a profile cut, I specify outside profile with a conventional cut and have the tool diameter set to .001" this gives a .0005 radius offset to the tool path but we're cutting wood parts here so its not aerospace ...

Does anyone use Vcarve Pro?

Hello everyone, My company recently purchased Vcarve Pro and its a really nice software for the price. My problem is cutter radius compensation. If I were there with the machine as I was programming it probably wouldn't be such a big deal but we really dont want to have to regenerate a program every...
