Hi,

 

I gave this example but if the drawing is done like this, in reality the outer curve should be 970mm and the inner 976mm, for a width of 4.21mm for 600mm long

if you use a 4 mm cutter for a 4 mm width, the drawing of the inner tooling must match perfectly.

Please find attached this curve into DXf you can importe into Polyboard closed curve ( or CAD sofware)

All the best, Alex

Doors or back, it's the same for inner toolings, now I presume it works with this news closed curve?

Hi Alex

I think i have done that now, i put on a door on the cabinet and it worked but we are not doing curve on a door its on panel measuring 600 x 400mm 

if we wanted to just do the curve on a board with those measurements can we do that? i have sent the 2 different files for you to see,( i just made a cabinet and took off the sides top and bottom left the back i think that's why it didn't work before)

hope this makes sense 

 

Thanks Caroline

Hi, 

 

Please check your curve, it is not 4 mm wide on the right, 

I think you forgot one point, make a rectangle of 600x4mm for example and then create the curves of radius 970.

This creates an error as the tool cannot do the path, it may even have to do a 4.21mm thickness for length of 600mm

 

All the best, Alex

Hi Alex 

Thanks for video i followed that and i think it has done the curve but when i put it through to Vcarve it is telling me to check tool not corresponding with vector 

I will send you the files could you have a look what i did wrong, we will be using a 4mm router to make the curve 4mm wide and 4mm deep

Hi 

Not sure if this is right area to ask, see attached pictures we want to make a groove and curved angle in a panel 600 h x 400w 18mm board , the groove is 4mm deep and 4mm wide with an angle as shown in drawings 

Hope the drawings make sense can you send me a video on how to do this 

Thanks Caroline
