More down here ↓↓↓ Click SHOW MORE!

This is the 44th in a series of videos geared toward the person who has never worked with CAD or CAM in the Vectric Software before.

I’d like to thank Ahmad Eivaz for allowing me to use his photos in this video. Thank you, Ahmad!

In this video, I’ll introduce you to Ramps and Leads in Cut2D Desktop, Cut2D Pro, VCarve Desktop, VCarve Pro, and Aspire.

I’ll show you what Ramps and Leads are, then give you a couple of examples of when you would want to use them. We’ll get into some Profile toolpaths, and get into the various settings we have available to us for adding a Ramp, a Lead, or a combination of the two. I’ll then demonstrate the toolpaths and Preview a couple of them to show you a few things to watch out for when adding Leads to a toolpath. Finally, I’ll show you a common error message that you might run into, how to fix that error, then recalculate the toolpath. Please keep in mind that this is an Intro to Ramps and Leads. There are many other options and settings to be explored, but this will give you an overall view of what Ramps and Leads can do for you.

As usual, if you have any comments or questions about anything I covered in this video, please put ‘em in the comment section below.
