I build acoustic guitars. I have programmed F360 to cut x-braces. I have specified a radius of 300" for the bottom of the brace, but F360 keeps reverting to a radius of 168". Where am I going wrong?
I assume this is a radius in a sketch. I have no problem setting the diameter to 600 inches.
That’s a big guitar.
You can try using a three-point arc and only constrain the endpoints. The dimension (radius or diameter) will place the center point. If you are having issues you may have a hidden constraint somewhere. This often happens when an errant snap happens.
I hope this helps. I build acoustic guitars too!
Found it, simple mistake. I was specifying radius and the program was asking for diameter.
Mike, how are you using your CNC in your acoustic building? So far I’ve only used mine to cut out braces, but I’ve only had it two weeks. I plan to do compound fretboards, bridges and rosettes. And later on archtops.
