    Hey guys, I'm having a bit or a mate at the moment with the workpiece in vcarve pro outputting to the machine.

    for example if I want to cut along the Y on the machine I have to create my workpiece vertically in VCP

    any ideas

    Not sure I understand, can you upload a vcarve file and I'll have a look if you want

    Don't think the file would help much to be honest as I think it on my side.

    Basically if im doing text along the width of my table I have to draw it vertically in VCP. When really it should be across my screen

    In V-Carve Pro, the X axis is left to right. It sounds like you stand at your machine with the X axis moving from front to back.

    I'm running the uniport.

    There's Geary, is there a way to solve this orientation wise?

    Like me you stand to the side of the machine, I just swopped over the X and Y axis where the cables go into the control box. Solves it in 2 seconds

    Thus you can design in vCarve in the orientation you prefer.

    happy milling

    I'm unable to do that due to running 2 motors on the x

    draw it in X-axis and rotate into Y-axis
