Running a job in Easel at the moment. Two circular fills, full Depth a couple cm apart.
For some wierd reason Easel insists on doing a couple passes in one circle, then hop over to the other and do a couple passes there… Then rinse and repeat. Lots of time wasted on motion between the two…
Inventables is working on making the toolpath more efficient
This is Ruwan from the Inventables software development team. I’m really excited to share with you some toolpath optimizations we’ve just released for Easel!
Object by object carving - Up until now, Easel would carve all shapes in a “layer by layer” approach, moving from one shape to the next until all shapes at a given depth were carved completely. With our new changes, all shapes that intersect each other are grouped and carved at all layers before starting the next group. Shapes within e…
Thanx Allen. I must have missed that thread.
Is there anything behind the two circular fills? Something that might connect them a 1 object?
The depth first feature only works for separate objects, so if they are grouped, or overlapped by something else even if it is a white object behind them, then they will be treated as a single object.
@sketch42 That’s probably it.
There is a white object behind them - but with holes matching the circular fill objects. Probably there is a microscopic overlap somewhere in the drawing that messes things up.
