I am able to open it, but it is still very buggy in my experience. Text vector has never worked for me for example. Looks like a new update is out today so I will give it another courtesy look, but I'm pretty much on to VCarve and doubt I will be looking back.


On a side note, I think I've lost a couple pulley set screws, anyone know where I can get some replacements? Dimension/Size?

Will Carbide Create work with the Shapeoko 3 which is being sold through Sparkfun? If so, will be get a license if we purchase through that channel?

Carbide Create generates G-code in a proprietary format that's compatible only with Carbide Motion. Carbide Motion, in turn, looks at the IDs of the USB-to-serial chip, and works only if they match the Carbide Motion board. The SparkFun board uses an altogether different chip, so unless Carbide 3D add that to the list of supported IDs, it will not work.

So it's entirely up to Carbide 3D.

This seems to be them:

Maybe email Carbide 3D to ask if they can send a few out to you?

Pulley set screws should be available from any decent hardware store.

Wow....I may have to give that a second look. I was using F-engrave for my V-carving and engraving, but have been struggling a bit adding a profile to an engraving to cut it to size (ended up using a bandsaw which is probably faster, but less precise).

I'd like to see a feature in Carbide Create that would help when cutting aluminum.
Slotting on the SO3 is tough when cutting aluminum. Lots of heat and pretty difficult for a machine that isn't too ridged.
If Carbide Create could make profiles with tabs using an adaptive cutting approach you could increase speeds and extend tool life and avoid slotting difficulties.

Andrew has a video showing the adaptive approach which never runs into a slotting issue like a typical profiling cutting approach;

I'm pretty sure fusion360 has adaptive Trochoidal cutting if you want to try that now. It may take awhile for Carbide Create to have that feature. A lot of CAM programs don't even do it yet, some of them been around for years such as Vectric.
