    I have used the STL importer for my rotary jig, and for very simple .stl models which are straightforward - just slice off a side or two, maybe the front and back, and then make 0.5" or 0.75" slices...

    Gotcha. Did I miss that somewhere before, or was everyone else just able to figure it out on their own without asking, lol?

    I did use post 16 in setting the depths. Just hoping I got it right.

    But I just tried to use them and I hit a bit of a snag... either I misdesigned it when I did the redesign, or I don't...

    I know this is super old, but I'm exploring using these for 1/2" stock (actual thickness varies from 0.425" to 0.525", depending on my source and if I have to plane it at all...)

    3.103 GUI all messed up...

    I have no idea if this is just me, or what, but the GUI on the latest update is in many, many ways just all messed up. I haven't noticed a single improvement to the software, only negatives.

    How does this affect those of us without newer cutmotors?

    You're using the cut path tool, so it automatically adds tabs (you have it set to a minimum of 7 tabs, with 7 tabs per foot of the outline). It just doesn't show the tabs in designer, and there's no...

    As to the size of the cane; the handle is thicker than 1", which is why I went with a thicker board. And I did only eyeball/guesstimate it, but I am pretty sure I set it so it will carve 1/2" deep as...

    Would this work for a cane?

    Board ejected from machine?

    So I have a large sign I am making, in 3 carves; each about 9.5" by 41", carved from a 10.5"x48" board (3 48" 1x4's glued up).

    The first board carved and cut out just fine.

    But the second...

    I thought about it.
    For that I would need the 2D Tools' trace image feature, though.
    At least, to do it well.
    And I haven't gotten that add on yet.

    That really sucks...because the main reason to copy/flip is to ensure the dozen or so arc segments are perfectly mirrored.
    If I convert to lines and back, I lose the arc profiles I had set.

    Unable to flip a line drawing?

    So, using the connected line, line, and arc tools, plus a couple of vertices changed from free to tangent, I created half of a shape.
