Tool path not closing squares

Post by allen00se on Fri Feb 28, 2014 9:12 am

I just received my drag knife and wanted to calibrate it using a pattern of squares with different offsets and swivel heights. I am satisfied with the corners of my middle squares, however for some reason the blade path doesn't go all the way on the last leg of the cut to fully connect the square



as you can see its the bottom left corner of all the squares... I made the tool path in VCarve Pro 7 using the dragknife gadget.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Krys

The vectric gadget does not finish well at a corner. You have to put.your start points in the middle of a straight line.
