    I will echo what others have said... you can pretty much run your job within a day. I have been in a hurry before and set my glue up in the morning and unclamped it and run my job 6 hours later.

    Thanks ;)

    I stopped overhanging the vectors because it adds a fair amount of time to the carve with all that "off the board" carving the machine wants to do. All my boards are at least an inch...

    cant say for sure if WYSIWYG. If itís like designer though then it is because Designer is very much WYSIWYG.

  12. Convince me I can do this with Designer upgrades as easily - V-carve artwork

    I have always held out hope that Carvewright would give us an easy way to import line drawn artwork for V-carve jobs. Instead, if I understand the process as it stands, we have a few hoops we can...
