QCADCAM pockets

Post by blankenship » Sun Jun 07, 2020 1:30 pm


I just purchased QCAM/CAD and its working great for me for cutouts, circles and rectangles
But does QCADCAM support engraving or pockets (I think this is the term).
If I have a 1 inch thick material, and I make a 2inch by 2 inch square and I want to remove
.5 inch of all the material inside the square, is this considered a "pocket" or engraving
and does QCAM/CAD support this? I am using a CNC machine.

unfortunately QCAD/CAM doesn't supports pockets yet. Howsoever - here is a description how to solve a pocket situation:

If a thread is considered as "solved" please change the title of the first post to "[solved] Title...". Thanks!
