Drag Knife Path

Postby MS1603318257 » Fri Mar 26, 2021 1:17 pm

I am trying to create a dragknife path. It does not run it as a steady path but adds swivel actions to each curve. I have alot of curves and what should take a short time is taking way too long.
Is the swivel action method the only way of programming the drag knives?

Yes, Knife cutting operation would apply swivel actions for Drag knife swivel type. You can set the corner angle limit to control the corner swivel control under cut parameters tab. If you do not want swivel actions in your toolpath, you can try using 2 axis engraving.
