Re: Equal Spacing Between Closed Vectors

FixitMike & Adrian, Thanks for the good instructions for both methods. Both work great! The only difference in the results is Mike's will set the exact spacing desired by using the offset command. Adrian's will produce equal spacing between all vectors using the outer 2 vectors as the limiting bound...

Equal Spacing Between Closed Vectors

I have a row of 10 circles. The largest is 1.0" in diameter. Each circle is .075 smaller. I need to align these so they have the same spacing between the outside edges of the vectors, not the same spacing center to center. That function I've got figured out. I need the spacing between them held cons...

Can't see vectors under completed 2 rail sweep

Need help with what I'm sure is a simple setting in Aspire. I'm working on some of my first 2 rail sweeps. Once the sweep is generated I want to trim the sweep to the selected vector for that sweep. The problem is the vectors are hidden under the sweeps grayscale image. The 2 rails are visible at ei...

Re: Exporting a DXF

Thanks for the tip. The issue was buried in the layer names. I was using the / within 2 layer names. Once I renamed them the export worked perfectly.

Re: Changing the length of a line - direct entry

Thanks - Both suggestion work. The Node Edit instructions let's me move either end of the line to the desired position. The T shortcut allows the entire line length to be changed but neither end is anchored. Both options are what I needed. One more question, is it possible to have one end of the lin...

Changing the length of a line - direct entry

I'm trying to change the length of an existing line in a drawing. Example: I draw a square using either the square command or, out of 4 single lines. I could even have just one single line in the drawing. Is V-Carve capable of letting me select that line and typing in a new length? I have been diggi...
