I can do a single bit cut but when I try and do a 2 bit cut, 1 rough and then 1 detail, I get the following:
As far as I can tell,I am following Inventables guide lines in doing a 2 bit cut. Why am I getting this error message? I can do the rough cut by itself, which is a simple Christmas ornament, but when I try to add a name and year to the ornament, I get this error message.
But I agree with Wayne, it sounds like the design path (border) is too narrow for your selected tool to fit inside. You can quickly test this by stating a very thin bit diameter / or V-bit as it will fit inside “infinite” narrow paths.
The two stage carve is for when you want to hog out a large area with a larger bit and have a small bit do all the edges. But that doesn’t work for a cutout, it ends up using the detail bit for the cutout, which usually isn’t ideal. I generally separate my cutout into a separate work piece and do it separately.
