Sorry for the noob question, I don't have any experience with Surfcam but I've got this project I'm trying to finish.
The application is currently being done with an old DOS version of Surfcam and I'm trying to upgrade everything to Velocity 4. So I was handed all of the DOS files and turned loose on it. Basically what happens is this:
1. A domed surface is created from some imported data. The surface is up to 3 inches in diameter and is raised about 0.030" in the center.
2. A spiral toolpath in an external .INC file is then loaded and projected onto the domed surface.
3. The projected toolpath is then posted to G-Code.
The .INC files from the DOS version will load into Velocity 4 just fine and I can go through this whole process using these files, but for the life of me I can't figure out how these file were created. I also couldn't figure out how the spiral toolpath was created, it's just a flat spiral starting at a radius of about 0.2" and stepping over about 0.010" out to the 1.5" radius. Velocity 4 doesn't seem to have a way to create a toolpath this way.
Any help would be appreciated.
