Tools & Features
Some of these tools and features include:
Select from a list of available fill types including S-Sweep,
Island and Line Fills which determine the method that the
toolpath is set to use during the machining process.
Selects from a list of available fill directions which
determines the direction of travel that the toolpath is set to
follow during the machining process.
Sets the perimeter of the selected objects to also be machined
during the machining process i.e. the artwork is to be included
in the cut.
Creates a toolpath along the edge of the machined area to remove
non-machined sections of the artwork i.e. it cleans up areas
that may not have been completely removed during the machining
Sets the diameter (width) of the Tool bit that will be used in
the machining process.
Sets the distance at where the Cleanup Flange is cut from the
perimeter of the selected artwork to the centerline of the Toll
bit (as a percentage of the Tool bit's width) - when the Cleanup
Flange has been checked i.e. how far the clean up cut is set
away from the edge of the artwork.
Sets the distance between each stroke of the toolpath (engraving
fill) as a percentage of the Tool bit's width i.e. anything
under 100% will create an overlap between each cut and anything
over 100% would leave a ridge between each cut.
Sets the distance from the perimeter of the selected artwork to
the centerline of the Toll bit as a percentage of the Tool bit's
width i.e. how far the engraving fill is set away from the edge
of the artwork.
Plus the Engraver works with alternating fill which means that
you can apply the Toolpath to the Inside or Outside section of
the artwork, as shown here:
Once you have created your toolpath you can either:
the toolpath to the Cutfile Manager and then to the Vinyl
Spooler to be cut out with an Engraver or
related device, or;
Select and Export as a .dxf file to then be used
with an Engraver or similar device's software.
