Todays request is a big one, but might really help set you apart from the competition.
I cut, just like everyone, various complex shapes in wood. My biggest problem in cutting wood are the natural knots and blemishes you find in all types of wood. So I spend most of my time plotting my shapes/toolpaths around these knots/problems, rotating them to fit, and trying to squish as many “shapes” into the good areas of the wood as possible.
What I would like is to be able to plot the “cuttable” areas of my wood, and then have Carbide automatically fill this space with as many “shapes/toolpaths” possible, rotating etc to fit in as many as possible.
I’m sure I’m wasting a lot of wood simply because it takes too much time to fit all my toolpaths together in a jigsaw like pattern to optimise my cutting area. Does this sound feasible?
I hope all that made some sense! Thanks!
