I am wanting to cut 5mm out of only the grayed area (I made it gray in paint, not Estlcam). The only options I’ve found is to cut the inside/outside of the red line or cut out out everything that is inside of the red line including the UK text. So how do I just cut the grayed out area down to 5mm?

You are looking to do a pocket with an island. Hover over the options and see if it is clear to you how it is done. The outer line is your pocket boundary and the next inner line is your island. Hard to explain, once you do it it once it should be pretty clear.March 19, 2018 at 5:43 pm #55687
Thanks!March 19, 2018 at 5:46 pm #55689
Sorry I couldn’t be more clear, it is a little convoluted to do so I don’t remember the steps exactly. Now that you know what it is called you can probably figure it out. If not I will be messing with estlcam later this evening and can do a step by step.March 19, 2018 at 8:13 pm #55702
Yeah man I’m sorry but would you mind going a little more in depth? To make sure you understand what I’m asking I’m wanting the red outline to cut all the way through the wood, the grey part to all be cut down to 5mm, and the rest remain untouched.March 20, 2018 at 2:39 pm #55773
I’ve been searching for how to do this all day but for some reason cannot find an answer.March 20, 2018 at 2:44 pm #55774
Cut inside pocket, hover over the tools they have instructions. Christians channel on youtube has videos as well. Pretty sure the fire sign has a pocket island in it.
I am working on the firmware compile issues right now.March 20, 2018 at 2:44 pm #55775
Justin – Can you post the file you are importing into Estlcam? Ill pull it up when I get home and see if something strange is going on.March 20, 2018 at 6:01 pm #55790
Thanks guys. Here’s the file.March 20, 2018 at 6:29 pm #55793
Before I try it for you. I just tested it.
- Select the “Part” tool.
- Click the inner most path.
- Then select the the “hole” tool.
- Click the outer most path, do not click on anything else.
- Then click on “Island” in the hole properties menu that pops up.
If you still have an issue I will try your file.March 21, 2018 at 11:58 am #55870
I think I get it now. I’m going to cut the file and see if it works. Thanks so much for your help.March 21, 2018 at 12:19 pm #55871
Oh….I can’t wait.March 21, 2018 at 12:20 pm #55872
The file I was working on the last 2 nights came out amazing, so much so I am making firmware edits to make it better!
