DXF and pocketing

Just touching on DXF files with our Thermwood 43. I've attached a pic. As you can see, some areas were not pocketed? Not sure if my settings for tools are correct. It used 1/2", 3/8", 1/4" and 1/8 tools to create. We have just purchased Artcam but haven't had time to use it yet. Any i...

Newbie question re: tools

Haven't used this part of software yet. I hope I can get some basics understood. I have a 12" x 12" X 3/4" panel mdf. I would just like to add a square 8" x 8" on top using a V- groove bit 1/4" deep. I have checked the tool library but do not see a "V" bit. So...

Cutting letters from DXF...issue?

I had to cut some lettering recently for a customer. 1/2" MDF. I used a 1/4" bit. As you can see from the picture the corners of the "N" is where the issue is. The original is a letter comes to a point in that area. I'm just wondering why it would drill out that area like that? T...
