Hey all - I’m having a problem generating toolpaths in MC 7 (build 5, mac os x) - I’m on a 2.7ghz machine with 16gb memory, so I don’t think that’s the problem.
I’m trying to cut a logo (about 3" dia) with some amount of detail on it, but nothing crazy. I import a bitmap into MC, and let the art functions do their thing to create geometry. But when I go to generate a toolpath (using auto wizard or manual), MC goes through all of the digesting and then the last step is “reordering toolpath” where I’ve left it sit for an hour and it never finishes doing it.
I’ve come up with some kabuki dance where I export 3d/STL from MC, pull it into meshlab where it “unifies matricies”, save it back out, re-open it with MC - then sometimes if I switch either waterline or pencil finish on/off that also helps. Major PITA tho.
But I’m at a loss for how to get past this step, and I’ve not gotten a response from either Rob, nor has the moderator approved my question for grz forums - so I’m posting here.
