Rectangle do a oval?
« on: December 31, 2008, 12:01:23 PM »
Can Rectangle Wizard be made to do a outside Oval shape?Like the pic.
I tried and got a very odd round shape.
Thanks,
Troy

I dont think it works very well. I just tried a few examples and when the corner radius gets to big to fit within the rectangle strange things happen. Im not sure if this is a feature of the new cutter comp or it always worked like this. Im testing more now.

actually if you check out the electrical wizard the duplex outlet cover hole is exactly that shape.

Troy,
would it be practical to do a rectangle than a circle over it? or a circle than a rectangle to square the sides?

Nice idea,but would be time consuming to run part.I would rather do the Gcoding with Cutter Comp.
I thought the Rectangle wizard could do it,as i have ran other CNCs that had a similar "wizard" that would do oval shapes also.
Thanks,
Troy
