Re: Online Store

I also needed a "plan", but mine was sheer luck. I like classic cars and Aspire(first Vcarve pro) was able to help me make some of the parts I wanted for my cars and it just so happened they were good enough that others wanted the parts also. Do I make a living off of the CNC? nope, not quite yet bu...

Re: Anyone doing epoxy inlays successfully?

I use smooth-on epoxies and plastics (some of the plastocs are 5 minutes set plastics and mill great!, the marbling ones I use look super cool in the wood patterns) in my 3-5 color designs. I also make a jig that holds the part in position and I can take that jig out and in multiple times and not lo...

Re: Found an error or bug in aspire 10 (well maybe)

Sometimes Windows will get confused and open a dialogue or input window that is hidden behind the other open windows. If it happens again try minimizing the front screens or use the task manager to switch to the hidden screen. nope, no such luck I went into task manager and looked at the services a...

Re: Found an error or bug in aspire 10 (well maybe)

Did you check the vectors before creating the toolpaths? Looks like very busy toolpaths to me which can often be a sign of messed up vectors (loops, crossovers etc). Otherwise it could just be the complexity of whatever is it you're trying to do. I sometimes cut complex half tone pictures and it pr...

Found an error or bug in aspire 10 (well maybe)

I was in the process of recalculating the paths since I measured the new material and forgot to select some vectors on my Vcarve function since I had removed the vector. the screen locked up and said no suitable vectors and won't let me out of it..I'know my bad for not saving it before I changed the...

Re: Layer Colors do not import with DXF

For work I often import vectors via DXF from AutoCAD. I have a layer template that I use for pocket routes, holes, etc. each with a corresponding color. When I bring in a DXF, all of the layers come in also, but they are all black in color. I am running Aspire 9. Has anyone else ran into this in th...

how to dish in this area only

I'm working on a little car project and just can not seem to do what I want. I want to dish in the area in the Yellow line on the picture and just in the cone area. basically it is to give a bit more room to the dimmer switch on my car. some of the other cars (same year and make)have the dimmer swit...

Re: Clear Coat

Do you think an epoxy resin could work. It will be hard and glossy. it should work as advertised as a base coat before priming and painting That is what they do for foam board surfboards. I make classic kick panels, door panels molds for vacuforming and other stuff that way. I use the smooth-on pro...

Re: Bitmap trace?

It looks like your letter spacing could use a little tweaking, but good go. hey glad you noticed it. I've been object blind since I started tracing this thing out and didn't even see it till you posted about it.
