Default Need some help here...

I am trying to make this bootjack for a friend. I can't seem to join the open vectors. I can't even find them. Can someone help me? When I get it fixed up I'll post a file for everyone to use. Thanks!

Cool

David right click on the design and one of the sub menu choices is select "ALL OPEN VECTORS" click that choice and it should show you the open vectors. Hope it helps.

I have looked for all open vectors but it just turns the whole areas where they are pink or whatever color that is. It doesn't show me where they are. And if I try join open vectors it still won't do it...

Hi David,

The open vectors in the cross hatch area are hard to close in that design. If you use a profile toolpath you don't need to close the vectors. You can still use your Vbit just adjust the depth of the cut to maybe .06. I have Aspire so I don't think you can read my crv file or I would post it.
Ask if this doesn't help.

Mark

Yeah that works. My only problem yet is that when I try to profile around outside it gives me the message to check tool can fit into vectors at machining depth. If I click on inside it goes ahead and calculates and shows the cut on the outside. How did I confuse it to think the inside was outside and vice versa?

Make 2 profiles one for the cross sections on the line and then another for the rest outside the line

David,
I guess I could have put the results of my toolpath picture on the forum. Is this the results you want?

When you profile cutout the part you do need another toolpath and you would want to use an end mill probably 1/4 and use tabs or another way to hold the part down.
