Carbide Create V Carve Functionality


(Dalton McKee) #1

Hey guys. It would be awesome if we could specify a maximum flat depth when using V-Carve tool paths in Carbide Create. More like a combination of V-Carve and traditional milling. Maybe call it in-lay inside/outside? This would bridge a huge gap between Carbide Create and Vectric VCarve.

Pseudo code explaining what I mean…

If (DOC <= MaxDepth) then
{
//V-Carve as usual
}
else // if DOC is going to be deeper than the specified maximum depth
{
If (InsideInlay) then // If creating a negative image in the material
{
//Cut profile at max depth along inside of contour
}
else //If creating a positive image on the material
{
//Cut profile at max depth along outside of contour
}
}
