    Default Convert tool path to vector

    I have a v carve tool path that I need to convert to a vector. Can the Shopbot version of V Carve Pro export that as a dxf? I don't have that post processor available.

    Thanks in advance.

    If I’m understanding your question correctly…

    The ShopBot control software, SB3 can convert .sbp toolpaths to DXF files.
    XXX.sbp files can be exported under (f)ile--> file(C)onversions. There are some issues however… the resulting vectors are the centerline of the bit and must be offset ½ the bit diameter in or out depending on what was pathed. The bigger issue is that stepdowns are exported as vectors spiraled on top of each other ands can be a bugger to sus out!
