A poor mans approach to getting a PhotoVcarve like finish using Aspire.
1: Import image into Aspire
2: Convert image to component
3: Adjust component height to .030
4: Draw vector line through you image at the angle you wish the bit to follow.. In the attached image it was 21 or 33 degrees
5: Create an array of the vector line generated in step 4 (spacing of the vectors were set to .040)
6: Draw another vector (square, rectangle, oval etc) around the photo
7: Using the scissors trim the vectors generate in step 5
8: In material set up check that the component your cutting is at the top of the material
9: Select all vectors generated in step 5 and pick the 2D profile tool path and a V bit (60 degrees in this example)
10 : Set cut depth to .001 and select Project tool path onto 3D image.
11: Generate tool path.
