Im having trouble with toolpaths on a Vector based Propeller I drew.
I drew it in ArtCAM as just a normal 2D vector, but when I want to use the 3d Cutout toolpath, i get an error saying there are self-intersections and it aborts, to says to group the vectors to see them.
Now I have tried joining vectors, I have tried vector Dr, but still I cannot get it to do the toolpath, This is by far the best Cad/Cam software I have come accross, but I just cannot figure this part out
Here's what I do. There are a couple of ways to do this but I find using "node editing" the most effective. 1)Group your vectors 2) Look for the white dots that point out the bad spot or spots. 3) "insert nodes" on both sides of the bad node. 4) Then highlight all 3 nodes and "Convert span to bezier"
This will remove the criss-crossed node.
