VCarve - Offset Allowance Cheat Sheet

I created a cheat sheet detailing how profile and pocket toolpaths behave when allowance offsets (both positive and negative) are applied (a concept I have to relearn every time I need to use it). Thought I would share in case anyone else struggles like I do, trying to remember whether they need a negative or positive offset. :slightly_smiling_face:

Nicely done. Very useful

Wow, I was just trying to figure this out. Thank you. I am just 4-weeks in and suddenly it’s beginning to click. But this is a great help thanks. Tom

You’re very welcome Tom! Enjoy your Onefinity! Joe

I am new to the cnc world and have had my machine for a short period of time. Thank you for sharing this as it certainly will help me going forward

Thanks @JoeT. I printed the cheat sheet for my notebook. It’s very well done and illustrative of how to set up the offsets in the proper direction.
