Thread: CutOut

  1. #1

    Default CutOut

    I’m trying to understand cutouts - if you start with a circle - then add a square the same size as the circle - can someone tell me how to cutout the 4 almost triangle shaped corners?
    Thanks,

    Do you select both and Select Outline and Assign a Bit to the outline and erase the Circle and Rectangle... I think....
    Favorite Saying.... "It's ALL About the Brass Roller"..... And "Use MASKING TAPE" for board skipping in the X or breaking bits.

    See attached, select a 1/2” grid, snap to grid, draw the arc and the outside corner, this creates a region, select cutpath, flip to the outside and accept, next mirror all four corners and do a cutpath on each.
    hope this helps

    This somewhat more difficult, first draw the arc first, then with “ connected line tool” you trace over the rosette with many line sections until you reach the other end of the arc. Turn on cutpath, do not flip the cut. You willhave todo each side separately.

    I've got a way to do this using Outline and no tracing, but it requires Pattern Editor - do you have that?
