carving on my turning is mirrored

Postby jshorba3 » Mon Nov 11, 2019 6:31 pm

I made a candle stand and the letter S is on it. It previews fine but carves backwards. Apparently there is a setting to mirror this but I am not able to open up preference settings for A axis on my computer and the pendant has no setting for this.

If you go into your design file in VCarve/Asipre, you can simply mirror the S by selecting hit and pushing the vertical mirror button (or 'V' on the keyboard) or horizontal mirror button (or 'H' on the keyboard), as appropriate.

Had to edit the Post processor to fix this.
I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

Was it difficult to edit the post processor to change this? I don't want to have to jiggle the toilet handle every time I flush if you know what I mean.

Forgive me for I am old and slow. This was 7 years ago.
