Hey guys, I’m currently working on a pretty detailed carve. Here is some info and the situation I am in.
I am currently using INKSCAPE to design a lot of the work I am carving. Many of my designs are complex and have a lot of Nodes / Independant lines. When importing my SVG files and generating tool-paths, the bit is raising and moving a lot between paths. It seems the bit spends more time in the air moving about than it does carving.
I have a decent amount of experience with Inkscape and CAD, but I have limited knowledge on optimizing my drawings for efficient CNCing. Is there a way to simplify my image so that much of the cut can be done in a single path opposed to hundreds?
I’d also like to add that i can’t even load the entire svg image, I need to break it down into sections in order for it the generate a tool path. When I try to generate the whole SVG file it really bogs down easel and freezes.
I look forward to hearing from you guys, thank you in advance for any assistance.
