I started using Pro Build 464. When creating the tool path it shows that time to generate is under 2 minutes. When I run the simulation it looks incorrect. Any ideas what to do to trouble shoot.
@John3, it looks like your file attachment failed, can you try and re-upload it ?
I tried uploading and receive this message
Sorry, the file you are trying to upload is too big (maximum size is 4096KB).
Compress it into a zip file and retry ?
What size is your c2d file ? You must be using a very high-resolution image for you heightmap I guess ?
I changed the model resolution to standard. The file was originally 7420 mbytes. After the zip 5181 mbytes. The message too large sill coming up. when I tried to upload it
How large is the G-code file that you generated that showed up as “2min” for cut time ?
Difficult to tell what’s going on without having a look at the file though, to you have an alternate way to provide the file (put it on a Google drive or other file sharing site?)
How long does the toolpath calculation itself take ?
I wonder if CC chokes on the size of the input data.
Gcode Horse.nc (3.8 KB) It runs real quick now that I made the resolution standard. I attached the Gcode file. Maybe you can run it to see what I’m talking about. In the mean time I will look into another way of getting this file to you.
Yep so something wrong happened during toolpath generation, that G-code file does this:
There may be something wrong in the settings (depths/offset). Does the preview give a proper result ?
Mine looks pretty much the same. Zoom in on it. Weird huh. I can email you the file. Give me a address. Thanks
did you follow a setup similar to this
Today I played a bit with taking STL files into Carbide Create (PRO).
This is a work in progress, but the question comes up here often enough that I figured I should show screenshots of what this process looks like
Step 1: Find a suitable STL file
Not all STL files you can find on the internet are suitable for machining on your Shapeoko. 3D printers can print “true 3D” objects that contain hollow areas underneath solid areas. With the Shapeoko, you can only “cut from the top”, so the hollow a…
I sent the file you requested to
support < email@example.com.
Let me know if you need anything else. John
If you look at this in a new version you see that the stock isn’t thick enough:
Unfortunately, increasing the thickness too much crashes Carbide Create.
Please update to the current beta, then try re-creating the file with a stock thickness which matches the depth/height of the modeling which you do — let us know how that works out.
I am on 464 is there a newer version. If so provide me with link. Thanks John
