model draw up

Postby Just Starting » Thu Jan 04, 2018 6:25 pm

hello everyone and happy new year 2018

my question is drawing up the artwork. i've always used the vcare program to draw up my models. after watching hours of you tube video about vcarve, lots of folks use some type of cad, or inkscape, or vcarve to draw the model.

my question is why not use vcarve? am i missing a better way of drawing?

thanks

In many cases people use other programs because it's what they're used to rather than any deficiency in VCarve.

Many times I've seen people posting that VCarve can't do something that the program they use can when it really can. It's just that the terminology or way of working is different.

Also many YouTube videos are years old and facilities that may not have existed in VCarve when they were made now does. There are things that dedicated CAD programs can do that VCarve can't but they can be worked around in my experience.

I have used many "other" CAD programs, even to the point of being very comfortable with them. I use vectric CAD for about all stuff related to the CAM side of the world. It's just the cat's meow for the vector creation to be used in the CAM world. I just like it - but it does take a learning curve - just like all the rest.
