3D cutout with Vectric

Quick question, when I do a 3D carve using Model Boundary on Vectric, how do get it to cut the model out? Seems like no matter what i do in the settings it leaves 1/16 of material.

Do an image trace and create an outside profile cut on it.

If I try anything other than 3d carve it tells me I don’t have any vectors selected to create any other types of toolpaths from it

Or, select the model…click the button circled in red on the modelling tab to create vector boundary from selected component.

create vector


I will get that a try!

Haven’t played with 3d too much but glad to know that’s there. Will save me a step next time vs the trace! lol.
