Question Flutes

Has anyone used the Array Copy and Fluting Toolpath recently or at least since version 9.0? I haven't used it for years and then only once but I cannot seem to get it to work after I draw one straight line. I did it by drawing each line individually but I should be able to use the tools.

I watched the videos and read the manual but if it is me, it is not clicking, I am a recovering Marine and Navy Seabee so that maybe part of the problem.

It is probably user error but before I continue to beat my head against the wall I want to be sure it is not the software since the updates. Thank you.

P.S. There is another Aspire update for those who don't have connectivity. Cheers.

Default Thank You

Gary and JP, thank you much for taking the time to eliminate a software glitch. I will keep working at it until I figure out what I am doing wrong or not doing. Cheers.

Thumbs up Got it now

JP, thank you for your file with all the possibles for flutes. I was apparently not understanding columns and rows as it pertains to Aspire. I could not sleep until I figured this out. Cheers.

It says on the tab but I still mess it up.
Rows are Y
Columns are X.

I do it wrong all the time. Ctrl Z ( undo ) is something I use a lot.

I like to get radius and diameter mixed up to.
