Re: toolbar moving

Have you got it docked to the main window? It may have detached. Try clicking and holding the mouse button down on the top of the tab where it says Drawing etc. You can then drag it around. When it gets near to the left or right side it should snap back into place.

Re: toolbar moving

When the tab is open click the pin (auto hide) at the top right to pin the tab open. That should fix it if I understand the issue correctly.

Re: Help setting up 2 monitors

You have to set the monitors up in Windows settings so that the Windows desktop is stretched across both of them and maximise Aspire, then press the PgUp key to tile the 2D/3D windows vertically (or select that option from the View menu). You can't undock the 2D/3D windows outside of the main Aspire...

V11 getting patches in the first week out?????????????????????
I would be absolutely gobsmacked if it didn't. The reality of testing is that it's impossible without huge amounts of time and labour to test every possible combination of what the software can do.

Re: Node Edit imported DXF file in VCarve Pro 9.5

A v-carve toolpath will cut the gap between two vectors if they are present. That's why I made the suggestion about trying the circles as that would show you what I was talking about. If you auto trace a bitmap then that creates two sets of slightly apart vectors that are ideal for v-carving in a lo...

Re: Problems V11

Never heard of an STL file with layers but after a bit of reading they do exist apparently.

Still seems odd that it would have those names to me but if it worked for you before then you're probably best to report it to Vectric.

Re: Node Edit imported DXF file in VCarve Pro 9.5

That appears to be cutting correctly for a v-carve toolpath as far as I can see. A v-carve toolpath will cut the whole are of an enclosed vector. If you want to just cut on the lines then you should use a profile toolpath or create another set of vectors to limit the extent that the v-carve will go....

Re: Problems V11

STL files don't contain layer information or vectors.

Are you sure you weren't loading an Aspire file with all that setup in it already rather than just an STL file?

Re: 3D Segmenting

I've never had a problem with the old way of orientation. I don't care if you add more features, but don't take away features that work. Don't force people to use 3-party software that use to work in Aspire before the change or force importing the model multiple times. Gary Did you see Mohameds rep...

Same problem as diaz2266. VCarve won't start if Sophos Home Premium is active. When i stop Sophos, VCarve will run... I don't want to stop my virusscanner... Can't you add VCarve as an allowable program? I don't use Sophos but I've never come across a virus scanner program that doesn't let you do t...

Re: Node Edit imported DXF file in VCarve Pro 9.5

Generally if you have a cut in an area that you're not expecting that shows a problem with the vector such as a small loop or duplicated node.

Along with tool templates, I have found that using Vector selector and associating toolpaths to layers is very useful.
That's by far the best way to do it and the way I've done it for years. Recalculate the toolpaths and they apply to whichever sheet you have active.

Re: V11 Copy toolpaths to another sheet

You can export and import toolpaths as templates. When you import you will be given the option to apply to all sheets.
