“One of the key features of Carveco over rival software is the ability to use multiple tools for the same bit of CNC cutting within a vector shape. To give an example, say we need a 200mm square with a 4mm radius corner to be cut 100mm deep. As big tools cut foam far more cleanly, we would use the ‘workhorse’ 19mm cutter to remove 99% of the material in about 2 mins. We would then use a 8mm tool to remove the last bit of material from the corners.
Rival software would make us run the entire program again with the 8mm tool, which would have to cut fresh air for 99% of the time until it reached the corners – this would probably take about 30 minutes!”
