So I made the decision and bought Vectrics v carve after using the trial for a while. I really like the software, but I have some questions. If anyone can answer or point me in the right direction, that would be great.
So I made a simple sign and I went to save the toolpaths with the Marlin post processor. When i tried, it made me split the project into multiple files because my project contained multiple bits. I was hoping that vcarve saved to a single file and somehow worked like my wife’s embroidery machine and just added a pause to the project to swap bits like the embroidery machine does for thread colors. Is this possible or does it just not work that way?
If it isn’t possible to save to a single file with pauses, how do I line up the other files in the project to start in the exact place I want it to?
One last thing, it seems to be random as to where vcarve starts the cut. I edit my g code to zero the coordinates, but it still seems to take a bit of a random place to start. I am used to using estlcam where I can place the zero starting point. How can I go about this with vcarve?
Thanks to anyone who can help me out in any way!
