Tom,
I suspect the image links were broken then the forum was moved to it's present server.  At least that's when I noticed some if my post links stopped working.

This should get you to  my assortment of dxf files.  Let us know if it works for you.

BobCAD Information / Pocketing Problems :(
« Last post by Butch Elrod on January 07, 2017, 05:13:58 PM »
I've been cutting shallow pockets into slabs then carving text in the bottom of the pocket. The zig zag pattern works best to give a smooth surface but it also leaves what I'd call a 'scalloped edge'.  (see image below)

Am I skipping a step that would clean up the edge?

Second problem is where the pocket began (bottom right of image) and ended the tool did not clean out the corner.  This happened only on this project which is a 38" x 8" x 0.1" pocket using a 1.25 diameter cutter.

Now that I've tried to help, I'm offering unsolicited advice ;) 
I'm presently backing up all of my bobcad and dxf files on Google Drive and all photo images on Google Photos.  It's free and allows you access even when away from home...

In CNC USB there is an "Export Toolpath to DXF" option under the File menu.  That feature does not work on my Windows 10 laptop which is not connected to the Digital Wood Carver.   It does work when using my XP Pro laptop connected to the DWC.

I have a small collection of dxf files shared on Google Drive.  Most I collected, some I drew from scratch.

Enjoy :)

It seems to me that 'machine time' should be part of the equation since sans serif fonts require less time to carve than serif fonts.

Unusual materials, like live edge boards or burl slices, are a consideration but find them difficult to give a value since I make, rather than buy, mine.
