HD5 and mini 4th axis

Post by JackW »

Has anyone tried the mini 4th axis with Vcarve desktop? I just purchased this HD5 and when I try to follow the manual, the Vcarve does not seem to have an option for the 4th axis. There is supposed to be a 'Gadgets" menu option and that is missing. The 4th axis came with my machine and software when I purchased the HD5.

I will answer my own post in case anyone runs into this.... The Next Wave documentation on the mini 4th axis is incorrect. There is a Vcarve video with the software that shows how to use the 4th axis.

"GADGETS" is not a feature in V-Carve Desktop. It is an available feature in Aspire and V-Carve Pro.

According to the Vectric Website the 4th axis is a feature of V-Carve Desktop. I have V-Carve Pro and am not able to advise where the 4th axis may be located in V-Carve Desktop. Maybe someone else will chime in on this thread that can provide that information for you.

Good Luck
