So anyone coming from Carbide Create is probably familar with the Advanced V carve function. Essentially you pick 2 tools, generally an end mill to remove the bulk of any flat areas in a pocketing operation, and then you choose a V bit to either get in the small spaces or clean up the corners to make it V carved. The way it is handled in Carbide Create is once the pocketing operation is done it prompts for a tool change. then you switch to the v bit and off you go.
My question is, how will the Onefinity CAM software handle this. If i generate a toolpath in Carbide create and export the gcode will the OF CAM software recognize the tool change entry and stop moving so i can do a tool change, or will it view it as one big file and start trying to carve my lettering with an end mill?
My unit arrives tomorrow so I am eager to give this a try. That is the one downside to the OF that I can see so far. Probably 95% of my projects involve multiple tools. I think while this machine may be better overall, it may be slower with having to rezero all the time.
