I’m a newbie to CNC. I just ordered my X-Carve. While I’m waiting for it to arrive, I’ve been playing around with using Inkscape to create svg files for Easel.
My first project is a simple knob. The problem I’m having is with creating the center hole. I drew a 1/4" circle inside of a round disk. I then import the svg file into Easel. I then set the bit size to 0.25 in. (same as imported svg). I tried fill, on path, and inside paths. All versions result in a red (no cut) output display. What am I doing wrong? I just want to bore a 1/4" hole with a 1/4" bit. I even changed the bit size. Using .23-.25 for a bit size result in a red hole, but .21 and under is OK.
