Re: Design question

Please disregard this post. I believe I have found my problem. When you have a 3D object, if there is light, it casts a shadow. I believe the CAD software does just that, which can make things appear to be what they are not. When I rotated my image is a number of positions they all looked different ...

Design question

I have a project, a U.S. Air Force flag, that has an Air Force logo atop the stripes of the U.S. flag. Around the logo there is an offset path of 1/4 inch outside the logo. After selecting the stripes, the logo, and using the boolean subtract function I set the tool paths. When I then run the simula...

Re: Bit Setter Failure

Thanks, but I am not sure I understand your reply. After initializing , this is not between tool changes, Bit Setter then asks for a tool to be inserted. When you insert that tool, at that point Bit Setter does not know if the tool is an inch long to ten feet long. The only way it can know the tool ...

Re: Bit Setter Failure

This is my second reply to my own original post, a follow-up. After running the project I mentioned in my second post I attempted to run another project and immediately I ran into the same problem with Bit Setter. Maybe this is a software problem?

Re: Bit Setter Failure

This is a reply to my own message. It may be that someone "in the know" might confirm what I suspect. Today, about 24 hours after my post yesterday, I thought I would go out just to see if my machine would run. Low and behold it is running just fine. Why the difference between yesterdays attempts an...

Bit Setter Failure

I am having problems with Bit Setter. So, I was just beginning a project, my router came to the front center and Bit Setter asked for tool, which I inserted. Bit Setter did it's thing, checking the tool. I then used my Touch Pad to work our X, Y, Z axis. Just after finishing this we had a power outa...

Re: Editing an SVG to clean it up

This is a follow-up to my own post. I still have not figured out how to do this, however, I have found a better SVG image that does not present this problem. So, my issue is resolved.

Editing an SVG to clean it up

I am wondering if anyone can help me edit an SVG file to clean it up. In fact the file is the SVG of the U.S. Navy logo. There are nodes that need to be joined and some that need to be deleted. How to describe this: First, imagine you have two half circles, one inside the other, and that they are jo...

Official United States Navy Logo

Does anyone know where I can find a top notch official United States Navy Logo SVG file that I can bring in to my Carbide Create software? I have found several such images, but when I run the simulation the results are less than stunning. So far the best SVG file I have found, when I run the simulat...

General V carve question/probelm

Hi: I am wondering if anyone can shed some light on a problem I am having with a V carve. There are times I carve stars into things and it seems that the starts almost never come out the same. I cannot figure out why. I use the same 60 degree V bit. As far as I can tell, which to be honest as a newb...
