Gave it a shot. Did not get very far. Aspire pops up message that no model exists in the file. Tried a couple of things, different versions, meshed the model, etc. Just could not get it to read the file.
Want to correct myself from an earlier post where I said "It is NOT the way aspire or vcarve is "interpreting" the stl file."
Well, duh, of course it is, sheesh. It was too early, I had not finished my first cup of coffee. I got other great excuses if need be.
Further, did a bit testing. This IS an issue. It is obvious on any flat surface in a rotary job. It is not a big deal for me personally since I do not do a lot of rotary to begin with and secondly I have not had occasion to mill large flat surfaces on the rotary. But I can see for some work that it would be a problem.
