Re: With the grain

HSS bits usually give a much better cut. HSS takes a sharper edge than carbide. Always a trade-off: sharper edge or longer lasting???

Re: Aspire V10.5 is OUT NOW!

When I try to download the upgrade to 10.5 from 10.022 I get a message saying I am up to date. Aspire says it is still on 10.022 in upper left corner.
How do I get the upgrade?

Thank you.

Have him look into the National-Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA), always looking for folks with degrees in GIS. NGA is the Spy in the Sky.

Re: 2020 User Group Meeting - San Diego

Would like very much to attend. Here in the DMV (District, Maryland, Virginia) are we on lockdown until 1 September 202, but this situation will be reevaluated later. My take is the government wants to avoid another Spainish Flu type epidemic where the second round killed 10 times more people than t...

It indexes and also spins the A axis both CW and CCW; uses router bit profiles to cut. CCAM is proprietary and only runs on Legacy machines. Their control software is modified M...

Re: Font size in a Notes box

This is a note to self on the drawing. I tried to adjust the size of the font - no joy.

Just deleted text and started over; this time I got a box that let me set the height of the text in inches, better than nothing.

Thanks,

Font size in a Notes box

Lots of great tips on fonts and sizes for carving. I need to increase the size of the font in a text box used just for notes on a drawing so my old eyes can actually read the note.
