Does anyone know if there’s a way to use a key hole bit in Easel or Vcarve?
Yes, someone posted some g-code to run this operation not too long ago. Now to find it.
Yay! Found it!
Great, thank you Rusty! Sorry for the double post, I didn’t see that thread. I was on my phone and just posted lol. I used that gcode and it worked great. I modified it a little to accommodate my key hole bit. I increased the plunge depth a little and didn’t make the slot quite as long. I also added the spindle stop code at the end.
I also found that Vcarve offers a gadget for Keyhole toolpaths. http://www.vectric.com/support/gadgets.html
