Gadgets

Hello and thanks for such wonderful software.
At work, I get to play with Aspire and love the box maker gadget. At home I have Vcarve desktop. Do you plan on making any gadgets available for desktop?

Re: Clipart

Hello, I use an airbrush for accuracy. I seal the item first, then put a layer of liquid mask around the painted area. After painting, I remove the mask do a very light sanding and the apply finish. Some of my products won’t handle the usual “paint everything then sand off what you don’t want” so my...

Re: Adjust depth of V cut

Well, since I couldn't find an answer here, I did a little experimenting. Here's what I found..... None of the tutorial videos from Vectric really address the problem. As was mentioned, various angles, induces hyperbol caused by the refraction of light on the rays of the moon and other such mumbo ju...

Depth of V carve letters

Hello all, Is there a way to limit the depth of cut when V carving letters? I am attempting to cut names into a 1/4" piece of wood. I pocket a .2" deep pocket for the glass to fit in, then I attempt to V carve a name into the bottom of the pocket. Whether I use a 60' or a 90' V carve bit, it either ...

Adjust depth of V cut

Hello all, I am attempting to cut a pattern onto a piece of 1/4" wood using V carved letters. The problem is, the bit goes much too deep and cuts through the wood. I also use 1/8 wood with the same problem. This is the case whether I use a 60' V bit or the 90' v bit. In Vectric Pro/Desktop/Aspire, i...

Depth of V carve letters

Hello all, I am attempting to make some small signs, 3 1/2" diameter. If I use the 60' Vee bit, the letters are too small and the bit chops the letters apart. How do I make the bit cut to a shallower depth? Do I have to go to a small bit, like a 1/8" engraving bit (even though I am not engraving the...

Downloading 3D tabs

Hello all, When I attempt to download some of the "downloadable" tabs in Vcarve Desktop, it says I am not "signed in". So, I sign in and it says I am successfully linked. Then when I go back and try to download the tab again, I get the same message. How do I get out of this loop and download the res...

Tutorial Videos

Hello all...… I am very new at using the Aspire software and find that the video tutorials are very helpful. However, as they are posted on YouTube, they do tend to jump around a bit. My question is: is there anywhere that lists them from 1 to ? in some sort of chronological order? It would be nice ...
