Does ESTLCAM limit the number of lines for big size of drawings

Am designing a large piece of decorative wood / bed end to be specific, it is 1900mmx520mm, when i try to generate a gcode, estlcam only codes the middle part of the svg/dxf vector file

estlcam only generates a code for the section circled in red

what can i do to ensure the entire art piece is coded?

Do you use dxf or svg? I’ve experienced that dxf(14) is more reliable than other formats in estlcam

Let me try it right now

Thanks alot it worked


It is possible to pocket outside a drawing in estlcam?

I have done it with words and it works, but have failed to figure out how i can clear all material outside a drawing,

I believe that Estlcam has an option to add a “primitive” shape, but I have juste edited the drawing and put a box around the outside, which works well.

If you use the carve function, with manual shape pointing outwards, you might be lucky. I think you need a v bit for that though, not sure

Thanks a lot

Today i tested the LR on different types of wood, this is what i got using a wood working vbit

My interest was to come up with a wood type with less fibers

I wanted to do large pieces but i realised the wood pieces provided by my carpenter arent leveled, it looks like i need to buy a flattening slab.

i have seen a diy kit being sold at lee valley, it can be used to build a large 4ft x 8ft flattening slab
