I made a model for him in Rhino by creating a 4" cylinder, rotating to 45 degrees, placing it through the center of the .5" thick material and using the Boolean cut command to remove the cylinder leaving the hole behind. In Rhino the model appears to be a through cut. I've exported to STL and when viewed it is a through cut. When he imports into v9.5 the thickness and visible angles are correct but it does not import as a through cut. There is a solid surface on the bottom side that cannot be removed. I'm wondering if I should export the model in a different format? Is there something missed in my creation process or is there something missed in the import process? Best yet, can this model be created in Aspire directly? We're both a bit new at this but getting there. By the way, there are many things Rhino does easily on the modeling side. That said, I can see there are many things Aspire offers with significantly less complexity particularly now that I'm diving into 4th axis operations. Since 9.5 came into the picture with new features, I'm about ready to step up to the plate again so I own both. Thanks in advance. Rich
You've described a common side effect that I also suffer from given I have a full shop in addition to my CNC. My other tools whimper with abandonment when they see me booting up the Linux PC that runs my Probotix Meteor. I do vaguely remember being able to solve all woodworking challenges that came my way before I had a CNC, so I resist using the CNC until I get a challenge that isn't possible or at least easy/quick to solve some other way.DLWOODWORKS wrote:richinsd wrote: Sometime I forget that I have other tools in the shop much more suitable for tasks then the CNC. Especially when it would take a lot of time to model it with Aspire. Just my thoughts.
