Re: 10.5 and xp

You can buy a new PC with Windows 10 for $150, that will have 50x the power of these old XP machines. But everyone wants to keep running there $2000 software and $5000 machines with a 15 year old paperweight... :?: A new computer is the very least of the cost. The machine is more like $30K and the ...

Re: 10.5 and xp

I know a lot of people are running their machines with XP and would like to have Aspire at the machine for the quick changes. I for one hope Vectric can continue making it happen for XP. I may very well just stick to the old version until I hear that happen.

Re: V3D File

3.6 GB of disk space to get one little 3D file! That's what I call the hard way. It's the rooster that I actually wanted.
Thanks for your time and effort. :D

Re: V3D File

Which sample file? I haven't looked at Cut3D for years but from what I remember all the sample files were freely available STL models. Some, like the Porsche, are available from the downloads on the tutorials - https://support.vectric.com/tutorials/V9/selectedvideo.php?video_id=89 I'm afraid you wi...

Re: V3D File

What was the starting point for the Cut3D file? Can't you import the model used to create it directly into Aspire or do you only have the Cut3D file? Aspire is a two sided program and Cut3D is a four sided one so any side detail will be lost unless you get clever with slicing/orientation. The files...

No! Oh how I wish it did.

V3D File

How can I convert a V3D file into a usable 3D file? When importing the Cut3D tool path into Aspire it only imports one side of the tool paths giving a mirror image rather then the full 3D model.

Re: 45 degree hole

Why not just clamp it down on the table at a 45 degree and pocket a hole?

Half inch drive deep socket ( 1 1/8 inch I think ) on a ratchet bored out! Have been using for over a decade and works very well. Only need a open end wrench with extended length router bits. :) :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Re: Musclechuck or Eliminator chuck

I've looked at this and in my opinion it would not help me much as I use a deep socket bored out to let the tool pass thru with a wrench on top of the dust shoe. The wrench rests on top of the dust shoe and locks against the vac hose. With the allen wrench setup it would be very difficult to to see ...
