I’m new to VCarve Pro so I’m probably missing something simple here.
I’m creating oak tap handles with an aluminum topper using my 1F Woodworker. I previously did a run using Carbide Create without the following problem.
Basically, using a climb cut on the aluminum topper resulted in the part being too large for the pocket in the oak, even though all of the dimensions match in VCarve Pro. I also added a -.005 offset to the pocket thinking this would give me a bit of extra room.
Is the difference between the climb and conventional cut direction the problem? If so, why is this happening and how can I accurately set up a job to machine the part to the correct size?
I’ve attached several photos that should help explain my issue.
