Re: Aspire - rotary issues

Hi Scott. Simple fix for you with this.....take your profile vector and flip it horizontally with the mirror tool and redo the 2 rail sweep. Then go into the material setup and verify model position. Close that form and you should have what you are after. I did notice in your pics that you are using...

Re: Latest carve in Maple

Wow! That is beautiful!

Most impressed with your management of the maple. Your glue-up is spot on. Had to magnify pics to max and put glasses on to inspect :D.
I maybe count 4 pieces....

Re: 4th axis rouging issues

Perhaps reach out to one of these two individuals to see if they were able to correct this condition.

In the meantime, I suspect if you were to change the raster angle to 90 in the roughing toolpath it would cut as desired.

Re: pricing

Accepted and thank you for clarifying your intent. A tight string you plucked as I have watched my profession become degraded throughout the years due to every joe blow out there with a hammer conducting business under the premise of being a Carpenter. The #1 complaint I hear from every client and t...

Re: pricing

What we do is PROFESSIONAL. We are not carpenters - we are professional craftsmen. Ouch! I do so dislike drama and tangential comments on forums, but can not let this one slide without comment. I have been on this forum long enough to believe no insult was intended, but really! I am a 35 year PROFE...

Re: Suggestion for Material

PVC trim boards such as Azek or Versatex. Mills beautifully, except for looking like a snowman when done. Takes paint very well and lasts forever. Comes in a variety of thicknesses and widths. Buy it by the board or in a 4x8 sheet.

Re: Another "inlay won't quite fit" thread - engraving bit

I couldn't seem to grasp the "why" of using a TBN bit. The "how" I am confident can be figured out. But why? Adze points in the right direction. In Stephan's conversation with Juan in his comments he clearly gives 2 reasons why he likes the TBN bits.... 1. he can get bits with a much smaller angle t...

Re: Technique For 3D Vcarve Inlay?

That"s a tough one as you would need the inverse of your model to apply the male inlay onto. Subtracting the model won't work without the inverse. I don"t believe there is a way with Vectric products to mirror a negative model. Might be wrong and I hope someone points that feature out. With Aspire I...
