tried to do some more stuff with this cursed software, with the usual results, all bad. tried a pic of the wife and i with mr peanut, and as usual with photovcarve, even though you tell it bottom left, it zooms to bottom right to start working its magic. no sooner than it had gotten to the corner, it zipped up and to the left, and started from there. since i hadn't tried it on real wood, i decided to use a scrap bit of walnut. needless to say, the results were less than spectacular (downright cruddy), the only way i could tell if anyone was in the pic, was to hold it at arms length, and tip it back some, and even then, it was touch and go. so i cancelled the run, and started a pic of our dad, figuring that that may work, on a bit of odd red oak. got my hopes up too high again. after 2 hours of it going back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, it decided after making its run from lower left to upper right, to zoom straight down, then back to where it was, went down and to the left, then back up and to the right, then hammered the bit right into the wood, right up to the collet nut, after vacuuming the dust (wanted the image to be a surprise), and giving it a quick coat of amber shellac, the image was just plain awful. right now i'm just about at my wit's end with this software. first, it didn't have the post processor for grbl, then got the patch for it, and it wouldn't accept it, then put in patch mkII, sort of works with the program, now with this latest misadventure, i'm just about ready to demand a refund. if anyone has any ideas, i'm wide open to them. the vectric people have referred me to the forum, as they cannot tell what is going on with the software.
