Re: A newbie question about vertical feeds

Thank you! That did what I expected, so I'll continue setting cuts up that way. I also switched to the ZigZagOffset pattern to clean up the perimeter. I'm a little puzzled about why my earlier approach yielded odd cutting depths, but I won't lose any sleep over the unexplained :) Again, thanks - Frank

Re: Path workbench crashes

Thank you for all your efforts!! I set the environment variable as suggested and downloaded the other nightly. The first time I opened the executable, it complained about missing several dlls, but opening it again was completely uneventful :) I was able to create a job, a tool, and several paths wit...

Re: Path workbench crashes

I'd be delighted to - here it is. I wanted to surprise my wife, who's been at a convention while I'm getting started on this. The file was saved before using the path workbench.

Thanks in advance - Frank

Re: Path workbench crashes

It's not obvious how to get the nightly builds (I've tried looking for them). I could use new glasses, I guess. Where do I get them, so I can follow your suggestion?

Thanks in advance,
Frank
