We just uploaded a new Carbide Create, build 304, with a huge new feature.
Here’s what we added:
- (NEW) Added tabs supports for contour toolpaths
- (NEW) Toolpath parameters now update immediately
Here’s the deal though- in spite of what some guy on Facebook thinks, this is a complicated feature and it’s one of the more invasive features we’ve added. There are changes all over the code to handle the weird edge cases that come up so please let us know if you notice anything strange happening- toolpaths not updating, load/save problems, etc.
There will be a new video about tabs added to the support section later today that explains how to use tabs and what some limitations are (in particular, they don’t work on inside corners where the toolpath will be offset further from the design than the cutter radius.)
