It sure didn't take me long to get stuck again. Here's the latest issue: I designed a file in VCarve, loaded it into Mach, turned on the machine and ran it. For discussion purposes, let's say the design is a bunch of flowers. Mach sent the router to the first petal and routed it, and routed it, and routed it... About 10 more routings than it needed. Then it stopped. I looked at the Gcode and it is, from that point on, the same line repeated about 400 times. Any idea what could be causing this?
Thanks again, and again, and again...
Bob

Just out of curiosity, what did the toolpath display look like? Did it look correct?

Bob,

It sounds like you have too many layers of a certain entity or chain.

When you're in VCarve, right click and select "select all duplicate Vectors" and maybe that will help you figure out what's going on with your file.

Hood, the toolpath looked great. I went to the Vectric's forum and tried to send them the file, but even zipped it was too large.
Dave, the file had no duplicates and no open vectors.
I'm going to scrap the file and start over from the beginning. I'll let you know what happens.
Thanks again, Bob
