Re: Vectric V11 Wish list

Certainly agree with these requests. I would also like to see the ability to group layers in the 2D environment.

Stephanie, instead of taking bets on the side would you consider taking bribes?

Re: Radial lines from a common point

Draw your first vector and then use the Circular Copy tool. Specify 0,0 (or the center point around which you want to rotate) as the Rotation Center and then indicate the number of copies that you want around a full 360 degrees and click on the Copy button. I've made bunches of cribbage boards in al...

Try setting the combine mode of the Text component to Merge instead of Add.

Re: File, New uses which template and where is it?

Well, when you select 'File > New' you are just creating an 'empty' Aspire file. It is a .crv3d file but it has no specific project data (hence not really a template) until you create it. Selecting 'File > New From Template' will allow you to create a new file from a template but in the Aspire world...

Re: Experimenting with Laser Add On

Thanks Dave, In response to the Z setting for the laser, the Oxlaser unit does not come with a shroud at the working end which, of course, means that its critical to wear the safety glasses. The lack of the safety shroud provides a lot more working area below the unit. The unit is also focusable so ...

Experimenting with Laser Add On

I've been wanting to experiment with adding a laser to my machine but didn't want to take a heavy $ plunge until I knew this was going to work out. So, I decided to take a flyer on a $99 3.5 watt OxLaser off of Amazon. I was able to design and 3D print a fixture for the laser module that fit in my c...

Re: Need Saxophone Image

But now that I look more closely you're using VCarve so I'm not sure that the 3D modeling tools are available to you. I'll try to upload the model from my previous post if that is what you're looking for.

Re: Need Saxophone Image

Something like this? sax_example.jpg I just imported a model from Thingiverse (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4750751). With the import process I needed to resize it to fit the project, rotate it in order to get it correctly oriented in the project and then set the depth setting to model just the...

Re: Struggling with process and how to go about this creation ... thoughts/help?

Is this what you're after? dish.jpg To get to this point I added a Zero Plane component and then reset the base height for each component to 0. I had to reset the Model Position in Material to make sure there was a 0" gap at the top. I didn't go through and optimize the tool paths but it seems to be...
