    I think we're saying the same thing now... :) I thought you might have been saying that any v carving toolpath can use any v bit.

    You could try www.ncviewer.com to see if the preview shows up there... That'd get you an idea of what you're trying to cut.

    The allowance is the gap between the parts. A value of zero will make it so the parts will fit VERY tight (assuming your machine is dialed in). That's a good choice if you don't mind some sanding. If...

    I follow what you're saying... When you use the box creator gadget and you have dovetails set, you actually get square tenons on the screen represented as vectors. If you select those vectors and run...

    Did you perhaps have it set on dovetail mode? That might explain why your tenons were really large on one side, they probably were supposed to have an angle cut into them. Check the settings in the...

    In a spindle you can only use a bit that's the exact diameter for your collet, so if you have a 1/4" collet you could use a 1/4" drill bit (that's rated for the speed you'll be spinning it at of...

    I wouldn't go full depth with that bit. I'd do 1/8th passes, 2.5IPS to start at 12-14K RPM
