Of course! You might want to install new version of Carbide create, but in the meantime:
In Carbide Create on the design tab click this icon to import the cross. (I’d recommend saving the one from Will’s post above).
If you want to resize it to better fit inside stock you have you can use this button after clicking done.
I find it easiest to draw a rectangle and then pick the dimensions for the size I’m trying to get, so I have a visual reference.
Once it’s all to scale and set in the workspace we can start making toolpaths. But first we’ll want to make sure the object isn’t linked together. Highlight everything and make sure it looks like this:
Now go over to the toolpaths tab and select everything and pick v-carve. I used a 60 degree v-bit, but I’m not sure what you have available. That will give the best detail on a smaller object.
You may have to play with the selections a bit to make sure that it looks right. Best way to do this is with a preview.
If that looks right, we can cut out the piece. For this I select the inside area of the cross and outside (you can select multiple objects by holding on shift while clicking them). The select contour. In countour area you want to make sure it goes to nearly full depth of your stock and select outside right. Toolpath should go outside the line around the cross and inside the line on the inside portion.
Now you’ll basically need to run this with a tool change. Easy with a bitsetter, a bit more complicated without.
If you dont have one, disable the cutout toolpath, export g-code and save it as the first file to run (however you name things).
disable v-carve toolpath, and then enable the cutout toolpath, and export g-code as the second file.
Then you’ll run the first file, swap tools, rezero your z, and run the second toolpath.
Hope this helps get you started.
If you have any questions I’m off today and can get on a phone call, or if you have the ability to get on googlemeets, I can set that up just let me know.
