I am a little confused on how to use a v-bit. I have some details that I thought would be perfect for a v-bit (small and intricate). When I set up the tool path it didn’t project a tool path. I think the way the v-bit depth is controlled by the width of the boundary so why wouldn’t at least scratch the surface? I get it may not be deep but at least it would be something.
So I tried a single straight line. I tried it on pocket, contour and VCarve. Used a 60 degree v bit. For pocket there was no carve, as expected. For contour the result was a 0.5 wide inch straight groove like a end mill? I could vary the depth but it was always like an 0.5 end mill. When I used VCarve, no carve. I don’t understand.
Can someone point me in the right direction to understand what the heck I am doing?
