Re: Copy along Vectors problem

Try to rotate your grouped circles 90 degrees. Afterwards select circles first, then your curve then run Copy Along Vectors tool.
I hope that helps.

Is there some way to use the distortion tool on the bit map to make the object truly rectangular for tracing? I did this once by first tracing the bit m...

Re: Carving Slots in a Hexagon have the wrong depth

Using the Rotary Job Setup.

Re: Draw Arc hot key

There is no shortcut for the draw arc tool. However if you open the "Draw Arc" form and then close it, it will be shown again when you press space.

Re: Using a "Document Variable" in "Set Last Pass Thickness" field?

The Set Last Pass Thickness does not support formulas, so you need to evaluate the variable prior to clicking Apply (by pressing =). The resulting thickness has to be > 0 and < cut depth before the Apply button will become active.

Re: Operating system

To utilize Aspire I use Parallels on my MAC in addition, attempting to locate Windows V7 with a 64 bit isn't something I choose to do. I failed to read the computer requirements for V10.5 therefore, I'll correct this issue by purchasing Windows 10 with a 64 bit operating system. Also, I should have...

Re: STL Import Problem

GregK, I appreciate your comments. My testing was done with 10.509 and my results seem much worse than you showed with 9.519 and are similar to your pre-9.519 image. Is it possible that somehow the 9.519 update was not carried into 10.509? That fix was carried into the latest version as well. Howev...

Re: Multiple Screens - Aspire Freeze

We had some users in the past reporting this freezing when using multiple monitors. One thing that is worth checking is to find out whether you have Nahimic Audio Drivers installed (https://www.nahimic.com/gamers/).

Yes, you have to be careful when switching back and forth for design...clicking that button doesn't change the numbers in the boxes. It just changes the measuring system. The conversion logic is only in the post processor stage. I'd like to see this changed in a future version of the Vectric softwa...
