No options to tilt / turn in the Engrave toolpath

Is there a reason why I can't tilt and/or turn the axis in the engrave toolpath dialog? It is available for all other toolpaths.

 

Best regards

Rickard

"All other toolpaths"? None of the 2D Toolpaths support Tilt/Turn, only some of the 3D Toolpaths do.

 

Engrave does support Tool Orientation and Wrap.

 

If you're looking at doing single line text, you might want to try the "Project" toolpath, as that can support multi-axis motion.

 

One last question; are you using the Insider build or Production?

Or are you referring to the Tool Orientation manipulators that allow you to better adjust your orientation?

Try opening the text command window and enter "cam.betamode /on". See attached sample file.

Thank you for your quick reply.

 

I should have been more clear. I'm trying to adjust the tool orientation. The interface for Trace is pretty much the same as for the 3d operations. I managed to get what I wanted from HugesTooling. That is, activate the beta mode and use the wrap functionality. Still, tilt and turn will be a much appreciated feature for all 2d ops when it arrvies.
