I am trying to import an STL. It is a simple rectangular panel to be cutout with some less deep dadoes. So can really be quickly done with a large bit.
However, when I import an STL Easel automatically loads a roughing and finishing bit. I can’t seem to remove the finishing bit so it only does the roughing bit.
Second, it creates tabs automatically, but the preview after generating g-code doesn’t really show them. is this a graphics glitch and they are really there? I can see in the tool paths that I think the tabs are there but not previewing correctly. Is this normal?
I did, create the STL. The 3D import worked very well. I have many parts an I’m struggling with a workflow to get 3d out of SolidWorks into 2D for Easel. The STL seemed to work perfect other than I need to remove the finishing bit.
Yes, but have to do a separate DXF for each depth and then have to recombine and align in Easel. Proving more difficult than it sounds.
Frustrating because I have just a bunch of simple cutout parts with a few dadoes. I can do one part pretty easy by combining g DXfs. But it if s going to be a huge take with the amount of parts I need to do. I’ll get it. Just looking for most efficient method.
