Re: Rest machine 3d finish path in v11

my first v11 project was a 12x12 USMC emblem. While calculating the finish toolpath there was a 15s pause in the process. I figure it was calculating what was remaining after the first tool before building the REST toolpath for it. But it did finish correctly.

Re: Love it - V11

I love the sheets functionality too. I'm in the process of merging 2 separate files I'd created for making 1911 grips into a single file. They were separate before because one used Material Surface and the other used Machine Bed for origin. I think I can do them all on one file now and eliminate the...

Re: Laser Module scope

Can that laser accept input from a file? Perhaps gcode or is it something else?

I purchased the Aspire 10.5 upgrade on May 6th; too bad I didn't wait.
I think you'll get a free upgrade, check your Vectric Portal, if not there ask support@vectric.com
I got the V11 for free but didn't see nothing about the collection as part of the upgrade.

Re: aspire 11.00 shows up as an ugrade to 10.5

I assume this is what he's talking about. In 10.5 I see this in the upper right corner which is OK for me.

Re: VERSION 11 - COMING SOON

My Laser Module is missing -- not showing up in modules. I tried to manually enter my Laser Module license key (from the purchase email) but it won't accept that key as valid Hi Gary, It looks like your Laser Module was linked to your previous version of VCarve and has not linked with your new V11 ...

Re: VERSION 11 - COMING SOON

Hey Stephanie,

which Clipart files have been updated since 10.5? Maybe save me from downloading them all again.

Thank you

Re: VERSION 11 - COMING SOON

Whoever called out Wednesday wins the pool. I just downloaded V11 from the Portal and I see the tutorials are on Youtube.

Thank you Stephanie and the entire crew.

Re: Laser module Vector Selection

Not yet, maybe V11 will offer it. You can right click the layer containing the vectors and click "Select Layer Vectors" option

1911 Grips with Floral laser engraving

Hard Maple 1911 grips with a floral pattern laser engraved on the grips. Finished with Watco Danish Oil and Lacquer. They were fun to make as I could let my artsy side flow a little bit.

Wear safety glasses as the chips go everywhere. To make copies of the part in the design you could use 'Array Copy' toolpath If ...
