OK, I got material thickness. I don't get equal layers tho.(I understand bottom, lower arc, upper arc) line down .230?
I made my outline vector, offset vector .25, I pasted a ogee profile, selected outer-inner vector-profile, apply.
So you used a ogee profile and don't know what size it is. in the two rail sweep you can set the thickness of the model and that takes care of the profile height and the width between the rails takes care of the profile width. If you don't scale to exact height then the model will be as thick as the profile.

I always draw the profile I want to the correct size for my project so I don't have this kind of problem. You can go to the Component Properties menu and change the height of the model if needed.

Here is a picture of what I was explaining before.

In the vectric tutorial he said dont worry about the size of profile. But I did make it 1 inch.
In that pic ,I want base to be .25 and profile .5 making it all .75. In mine it's .5 base or more probably .65

Remember you can change the height of the model in the Component Properties menu. Also your model does not have to be the full thickness of the material. In my design file I had a material thickness of 0.375 but I had my model thickness set as 0.230 and had the model 0.03 down from the top of the material. That leaves 0.115 under the bottom of the model that will not be machined with a roughing or finish past so any tabs you add are safe from being cut by roughing and finish. Your cutout toolpath will cut the rest of the plaque and leave any tabs you add.

Played around today.I think I had model set at .5 inch and material at .75. Did rough cut and it took it all down. Then changed bit and did finish. It was about 1/8 inch above the rough cut.I set z zero on top of material.
Back to drawing board and I see it rough cuts over whole model. I set model boundary.how do I get it to only rough/finish the contoured edge?
I've been watching videos all day,12 so far. Started from beginners #1....my eyes are bleeding......
Oh and Tinkerbell, I tried 60 degree 1/4 inch v groove at .02. Barely cut in but still a lot of tearout or overlap.ready to try a Finnish nail.

What software were you using to output the gcode to cut this or are you talking about the preview in the software?
