My Shapeoko 3 took just just one week to reach a remote corner of Tasmania from the time I placed the order, which must be something of a record!
I’m exploring the Advanced V Carve capabilities of Carbide Create/Motion and encountering some difficulties. Can anyone assist? Documentation seems a bit thin on the ground.
I have attempted to use the advanced V cut feature on Carbide Create, as shown in the YouTube clip – “Carbide Create Gets a New Toolpath: Advanced Vcarve.” This is about all I can find on this capability. The first cut, which uses a 0.125” end mill to rough out the design, works fine. Then, when it pauses, I change to a 60 degree V cut blade (as in the video), and attempt to jog the machine to ensure that the Z axis is properly rezeroed for the new cutter to create a uniform base for the design. Once I move into the jog window, none of the commands appear to work and I am unable to proceed beyond this point. Nor can I resume cutting. All I can do is abort the operation. I am zeroing manually, unlike in the video, but otherwise (as far as I can see) doing exactly the same as in the video. Can anyone tell me what I am missing here?
