I’m not sure what to call it so I named it “active work area”.
I noticed in another thread that people said maslow is no longer a machine choice. When I got into Easel, I clicked on 3rd party machine and it wanted me to download a program (sorry it was late last night and I don’t recall what it was called). When I did this, I had a large choice of 3rd party machines including several maslow choices. I set it up for exactly what I have.
Upon setting it up, the workspace then showed up as 48x96 and everything looked good but there was a strange dithered box in the lower left corner of the workspace (see screenshot). I discovered that I could import a drawing or create a shape anywhere on the workspace but only objects contained within the dithered area are recognized when it comes to simulation. In the screenshot, I purposely put part of the circle outside the dithered area and ran simulation and it only “cut” that area within the dithered area. When I move the circle outside the dithered area I get an error message that there is “no object to carve”.
It seems counter-intuitive that the dithered area is the only area that “works”. What is this and how do I activate the entire 4 x 8 area? Thanks! Jerry
