Re: Welcome to the new and improved Vectric Forum!

Way too difficult to read. Background to bright, lettering too thin.

Re: Holiday gift for everyone - Party Serving Tray

It already works for left handed people. In fact it works better than for righties.

Re: Holiday gift for everyone - Party Serving Tray

I'm glad everyone is enjoying these, that was my intent!
Regarding it being lightweight, I went through multiple design iterations before I settled on this one. I highly recommend maple.

Re: Holiday gift for everyone - Party Serving Tray

Thanks for explaining how to save in Vcarve format, I had no idea.

For those of you wanting Vcarve or vectors, here you go. Enjoy.

Holiday gift for everyone - Party Serving Tray

I want to share this with everyone in the spirit of giving. The world has become a troubled place and I'd like to show kindness and hope the gesture will be paid forward by more people. This is a party serving tray that I designed and have sold lots of. With one hand you can carry your food and drin...

Re: Hot Wire cutting

Ted,
I understood what was happening. My point and still my point, is that there are poles in the tent a whole lot longer than drawing the shapes that may be insurmountable and should be addressed before worrying about drawing shapes.

Re: Hot Wire cutting

While this ongoing debate is interesting, even if only in it's absurdity, I wonder how anyine is going to cut the shapes pictured in the posts using hotwire. I have built a hotwire foam cutting machine. It uses DC voltage to heat a nichrome wire that is stretched between two points. This heated/taut...

Re: Slice a complicated 3d STL file?

You can also slice and dice at will in software made for 3D printing and output just the sliced still files, instead of printing, then import into Aspire. I use one called slic3r, but there are many that will do the same thing. This way you can pick the sliced thickness you want and slice it from bo...

Re: Import Method for Digitized Files?

Gary, I believe Paul Rowntree's CSV gadget will do what you want. Here is an excerpt from the manual- CSV to 2D Vectors Importing 2D CSV files is easy, and the created vectors are placed on the material with no changes or scaling. The CSV to 2D Vectors gadget will prompt for a filename, and you navi...

Re: Carve Desktop carving a Record album

The bits I used are in the pictures I posted. I don't believe you can successfully cut the teeth of the comb in the file you want to do. The plastic breaks too easily. My only suggestion would be to adhere some kind of rigid material to the back side of the record in an attempt to make the teeth of ...

Re: Carve Desktop carving a Record album

The box is just a plywood box, with supports on the inside and a piece of mdf on top for the vacuum to pull through. All of the plywood was selaed with shellac so that no vacuum would be wasted pulling through it. the mdf is attached with glue only to avoid any metal fasteners and to allow easy repl...
