Are you having laser and/or other post processors problems???

Having just aquired a 3 watt laser for my HD-4, and downloaded the PP files the way the user manual instructs, I was flumoxxed why I could not load the .tap file to the thumb drive. I kept getting an error message that it was not getting along with the system. I had just also upgraded to Vcarve Desk...

What XY location are you using...and WHY?

Is there any advantage to using the XY setup at a corner rather than at "center mass"? I use center mass, but could be persuaded to change if there is a good enough reason. Thanks....

Clamping an inlay

IMG_2771.JPG I am sure this has been discussed before but I could not find it using the search feature. I have lately tried inlaying with my Shark and have been successful and very happy, EXCEPT when it came to clamping it up while gluing. Then it dawned on me that I have a super clamping system st...

Grave marker suggestionns please

I recently lost my youngest brother, and his wife has asked me to create a wooden headstone on my cnc machine. Oh, Boy! This has me looking for help as I want to explore all the possible scenarios for me to accomplish this. All woods left outdoors will deteriorate whether it is teak, cedar, or whate...

Re: Virtual Zero not Compensating

This is not in regards to your code query, but the first thing that I saw was your failure to use a spoilboard. it scares me think of a pristine machine bed being gouged up with a possible "oops" in coding.

Re: Stoping a cut and going back to 0.0.0

If I remember correctly, I hit the red stop, then the "X"...then individually and manually enter in the "0" on each axis's pendant position, then use the MOVE command on the pendant.

Re: Carved and Painted sign for Chiropractor

I would be interested to know
1: What program do you use for carving?
2: What bits did you use?
3: Are the letters raised?

I am especially interested in #3 as I am using only Vcarve desktop and see many processes that are not available to me.

Thanks,
NL7U

Re: Fun Christmas Projects

Hello WNC...those are some very nice projects. Looking at the palette, is the text raised proud of the main surface? If so, could you give me some more information on how you did it? I am using just Vcarve Desktop, and I do not believe that option is available with that program. Thanks.
