Vcarve and Weeke6/26/15
Is anyone using Vcarve and Weeke Woodwop 4.0.
We have a project with some artwork than needs to be machined and they provided a hatch pattern which translates into thousands of small lines. The pattern is about 13' wide on 6 doors and needs to match edge to edge
You can go to the site and download the demo full work version to test your machine and post processor before you purchase, I have done some cool work with this software, feel free to call if you need.
Below are inlaying wilsonart oil rubbed bronze metal plam into Walnut for the face of a desk. and using texture tool pathing for the side of ticket stations at the Zoo
I have used Vcarve Pro and WoodWOP 4.0. The programs work out of the box....you need to save the toolpath in two steps though and bring both to the machine.
First as a .ply file. This will create the polyline necessary. This file will go in the same file as all your "components".
Then save your .mpr file. When you open your .mpr in woodwop, you need to make sure it's referencing the .ply file you created earlier. Then it's more about mirroring the x or y as needed, and centering the component on your work.
I know Jim may not have WoodWOP, but for anything VCarve, he's the resident expert to ask...he just got me out of a jam a few weeks back! (Thanks again Jim!)
Jim will have to weigh in here, but I believe v-carve will allow you to tile the toolpaths, so you can draw all the doors at the same time.
