Re: Compact metal plate engraver

Interesting laser discussion but I thought the original poster was looking for a cheap way to engrave metal. A diamond drag point will mark any soft metals or anodized aluminum. Any of the small foot print should work. Or did I miss something?

Re: How to carve this?

John/Randall,

Yes, those are what I am trying to do. The example by Randall was made in version 10 and I have 9.5 now and can't open it. I tried using a fluting tool path but am doing something wrong.

How to carve this?

This is just a handle with a finger loop. I'm having trouble conceiving how to carve this handle. Specifically the base round over from the inside of the ring to the top level. Any suggestions appreciated.

TIA

Re: DXF units

Thanks Adrian. That gives me info that maybe I can find how to have Cura assume inch instead of metric.

DXF units

When I save an Aspire project that is designed in inches as a DXF the units are undefined when I import them into other software. Can anyone enlighten me how to prevent that? When I export the other software as an STL it saves as MM's. And when I bring that into Cura for slicing I have to scale by 2...

Re: Calling all Vectricians for our COMPETITION - Operation SMILE

A nurse friend of mine is at that stage where they are asked to reuse their n95 masks. He asked if I could come up with something that would allow him to take it off and put it on again without having to touch the outer surface of the mask. I photographed the mask to get its shape, then imported int...

Aspire dxf to fusion360

Good morning all, I am fairly adept at aspire and like designing items within it. I need some help though with getting a design into other software to be able to extrude a design and create a stl file for slicing for a 3d print. For some reason this design needs something different than what I have ...

Re: Faceshield design if anyone wants.

Got my Creality Ender printer right before Christmas. I had one potential use for it. Since then I have had that thing running probably 40 hours a week. So many new ideas that can be Cad and mfg in a short period of time for pennies. Limited only by size and imagination. Thanks for the mask info! RT

Script 1L font

I have used this font for engraving and would like to use it in some marketing but this is a Vectric vfont not available to windows. Does anyone know if this font is available in a OTF or TTF format?

TIA
