Vcarve Test File Database

Hi everyone,

I am new to Vcarve, and I am struggling to produce files that cut properly. I've spent some time with the tutorials, which are really extensive, but unfortunately they are set up for a larger cutting area that you would find on a standard CNC router -- ie, they can't be run on a Handibot without modification. I don't want to modify. I want to work with files that I know will cut properly on a Handibot.

So I am looking for a database of sample Vcarve files that were made specifically for the Handibot. I'd like to analyze them, run them, tweak them and see what happens, etc.That's the way I learn best.

Do you know of any place I could find such files? Do you have any great "test" files that you would be willing to share? Thanks in advance!

Take a look at this file: [workbench.grabcad.com]

It's a version of the file I use to make the laser sight accessory--sized for cutting on the handibot. It's got a good mix of pocketing and profiling at multiple different depths. I'll try to upload more later!
