Thread: Defining parts of an image imported?

  1. #1

    Default Defining parts of an image imported?

    I have an image that I imported and it is one big aspect to the pattern.

    When I carve it I am using the 1/16" Carving bit, I set the depth to .35 which is what I want but when carving the pattern there are 2 small lines around the whole Chevrolet Bowtie that the bit angle makes very thin, thus not ending up the way it should be.

    Is there a way to define parts of the imported image so I can set the width different? Or possibly use another bit for that portion of the carving?

    Sounds like taper of the bit hits the line and makes it thin when it goes that deep. Add draft and bit optimization.

    Exactly my thoughts! I checked the pattern, both Draft & Bit Optimization were set to none. I set Bit Optimization to Best and Draft to Large. The Depth is set to .35" Would this be the best settings to alleviate this issue?

    Should I still use the 1/16" Carving bit? If so, how does the taper on the bit still not do the same thing with these settings? Should I use another bit?

    I would not go to .35 or use the Large Draft. Small draft with bit optimization best and 1/16" carving bit.

    Thanks for the input!

    But back to my original question.....Is there a way in the software to define or select certain parts of an imported image?

    An image is imported as one unit. You cannot separate the pieces. You can use Pattern Editor or Pattern Sculptor to manipulate your imported (unlicensed) pattern.
