My colleague and I have recently bought a CNC machine, solely for carcase fabrication…
It turns out Vcarve is horrible for drawing in, especially if you are used to SU.
I need to be able to save single lines as components, so I can use a fluting toolpath for things like biscuit slots etc etc, but currently individual lines don’s appear in once imported into Vcarve, despite what options are selected.
Has anyone got any pearls of wisdom?
I’ve got everything saved into neat layers etc, but that doesn’t seem to make any difference.
Attached is the file. The lines that are currently on the untagged layer are just to aid positioning and aren’t required to be imported. Ideally the biscuit slot, and the 9.5mm groove could be imported as just a line, with the current boxes only visible in SU… again for positioning.
