Re: Easy Cabinet Maker

Hi Jim,
Thank you for sharing! Have you had any thoughts about drawers or do you use the Vectric Box Creator gadget?

Re: Easy Cabinet Maker

Jim, are you still making Easy Cabinet Maker available? I've tried your website a few times and it says that it is under maintenance. I'm writing a cabinet gadget and so far I have the case done. I was about to start on drawers and discovered your post here. Another option I was looking at was modif...

Re: Missed weave??

Thank you Michael (mtylerfl). It worked exactly as you described. Thank you for teaching me something new to make the weave behave. I'm not as good as you sculpting the clean up. I cut out a section of vine just under the where it needed to be repaired and moved it to cover the new unwanted overlap....

Re: Missed weave??

I drew the 3 vines (3 single line vectors, not autotraced) and you can select them individually so I don't think there can be any gaps. In order to get a file small enough to upload (see attached) I had to cut off the bottom 2/3 of the vines, lower the resolution, get rid of every extraneous detail....

Missed weave??

I'm flummoxed. I'm doing an extrude and weave with three open vectors. It all looks fine except for a single intersection where there is no weave (see attached file). I don't get it since all the other intersections weave correctly. The screen capture is only showing the top third but every one exce...

This can be modeled in Aspire. Use the vector unwrapper tool, offset your 1" circle then apply. Create shorter drive rails as Eph210 suggests ...
This is excellent! Thank you JoeBlow and Eph210! :D :D

Re: Offset rotary path

It will cut just fine as modeled. As to modeling it in Aspire? If you already have something that produces 3D models what is the point? There are two points (reason for my post). One is simply to learn Aspire better. The other is that I was hoping, if there is a way in Aspire, to create a more effi...

Re: Offset rotary path

Here is a picture. I drew this in tinkercad and can export it from there and into Aspire to make the part. But I'm trying to learn Aspire better and wondering if I can do the whole thing in Aspire.

Offset rotary path

I'm new to using the rotary axis and having trouble figuring out how to design a part. It starts with a 2x2 20" long (1.5" x 1.5" x 20"). I don't want to round the whole thing. I just want to round the last inch to a 1" diameter. But that 1" needs to be off center. See attached view looking down the...

pop out levels menu

Is there a way to pop out the Levels Drawing menu? Or at the very least a configuration so the drop down box is resizable? A pop out, resizable dialog box would be ideal. Then I could just leave it on the screen and never have to click it open or scroll. I use a lot of levels and selecting them from...
