Toolpaths and Machining

Profile

Profile

The Profiling Toolpath allows you to essentially Cut-Out or cut around a specified vector. You can use the profile toolpath to machine inside, outside, or along the boundary of selected vector and is ideal for cutting out letters and shapes from a material block.

Bridges

Creating Bridges

Bridges or tabs, are small areas of material designed to hold your work in place while performing cut-out operations on a profiling toolpath. Carveco allows you to automatically add bridges or lets you manually control the number, placement, length and thickness of any bridges you wish to add. You can also edit the bridges...

Drilling

Drilling

The Drilling toolpath is specifically designed to help with drilling holes in your model. The size of the drill hole is determined by the diameter of the cutting tool that is used during the machining process.
