Trim 3d Component in VCarve Desktop 10?

Have a 3d component from an .stl file (purchased) that exceeds the size of my design. I looks like Vectric made it possible to trim a component to a vector but I can't figure it out, and I'm tired of watching tutorials that don't cover this. Found instructions to do it in Aspire, but I don't have th...

Re: Can't load tap file from memory stick to pendant

Maybe related to the first post - definitely solved mine!
The flash drive must be formatted at FAT32, not ExFAT. Best is max size of 8 gb, otherwise more than about 10 files must be in a sub-folder, not the root.
I'm up and running! Thanks, Russ at NextWave Tech Support.

Re: Can't load tap file from memory stick to pendant

I've another version of this issue . . . Purchased an HD4 last week because of an issue we were having with system not keeping registration numbers - had to enter them every time I restarted. I've now got the HD4 attached, pendant hooked up and zeroing is much nicer because I can stand next to the m...

Re: Widen End Mill Cut?

Well, I've now run a bunch of these parts with the longer bit, found that I really had to slow the feed rate and pass depth, but seems good now. jmc

Widen End Mill Cut?

Have 1/4" end mills with 3/4" cut length, and want to cut through a 1-1/4" thick piece. Tried, but the non-cutting part of the bit is binding up on the slot when the cutter edge gets below top of wood. I've ordered a couple end mills with 1-1/2" cutting length to use, but is there any way to program...

Re: Touchplate Not Working

Our machine's plate stopped detecting, turned out the small wire leading to the magnet had been pulled out of the heat shrink tube on the larger wire end. Next Wave sells replacement cords, about $32 - problem solved, and they have longer heat shrink on the new ones.

Re: Touch Plate detection just failed

Anyone know if you can buy just the replacement cord for the touch plate? $100 for a new plate and cord seems a bit high . . .
I've messaged NextWave, but no info yet, Rockler's site suggested NextWave . . .
