I am playing around in a trial of Easel CAM software. I was surprised to see that it actually has Maslow as a machine option. The problem is that although I have Maslow with an X of 96" and Y of 48", it displays that size, however the effective cutting size is a small shaded area in the lower corner of the sheet. If you import or draw an object outside that area, the simulation stops when it hits the edge of the imaginary cutting area.
Here is a shot of my saved machine:
Here you can see that although it gave me a 4X8 sheet, the software is still limited to the shaded area where I placed the circle to be cut. On the right side I ran a simulation and it worked but if you drag the circle outside the shaded area, you get an error message that there is no object to “carve”.
Here is the error you get if you go outside the shaded area
You can not “grab” the blue box to expand it to the full size like you might intuitively think.
I’m not sure what I am doing wrong?
Thanks for your help!
