Re: Opening a can of worms. Mac or PC?

I run my business exclusively on Macs. I do the design work using the Fusion PC emulator on a MacBook Pro, then I shutdown to hookup to the SB. I startup and use Bootcamp to run Windows natively at that point. Don't recommend the emulator when running files. All of my email and desktop programs are ...

Re: Sign made w/ Aspire

The product is called Styrospray.

The sign was hand painted with a brush and acrylic paint.

Re: Sign made w/ Aspire

The foam pieces started out at 36" x 36".

You can see my fingers on the side and bottom (for scale) if you squint and hold your head just right. :lol:

Re: Sign made w/ Aspire

Thanks Michael.

It was made out of four layers of blue foam and coated with polymer, then we painted it with acrylic and sealed it.

We are going to hang it inside for our VBS kids.

Hopefully they will enjoy it.

Help Please - Brush Script MT Font

When toolpathing the font, either as a V-carve strategy or as a pocket with font Brush Script MT Aspire is dropping the letter "c", but toolpaths the remainder of the following phrase.

Re: Aspire 2.5 indexer pp file?

The information Randall posted was all correct, so was the pp. Thanks again for talking the time Randall. Phil - I forgot I had just adjusted settings in the SB control software, not in Aspire or the pp. It had more to do with my initial setup of the machine, than the software. Plus the excitement w...
