Re: 2021 User Group Meeting - San Diego

...This is what happens when you hold something in such a nutty place as California. Hi Mike, I believe the cancellation of the in-person UG is due to the current and future wildly unpredictable UK travel restrictions (or any other province, state or country’s either). The upside of the online UG i...

I can't wait ti tell my wife that we threw away $600 in aitfare.
I'm out $800 and it is not refundable. I can use the funds in the next 12-months so I guess we're going to the mountains for Christmas! Snow? What's snow? We live on the Gulf Coast!

Re: 2021 User Group Meeting - San Diego

I'm bailing too. I've already paid for airplane for me and my wife, so your postponement will cost me $200-300 more to go if everything else is even. This certainly isn't worth it so I am going to bail out and request a refund. This is what happens when you hold something in such a nutty place as Ca...

Re: Need your help please!

It's not Vectric, it is a bug in Mach 4. I contacted AvidCNC and we changed the settings on Mach 4 (drifts upward on z-axis) and we changed the settings on Mach 4. So far, so good. It is working properly without at z-axis issue.

Re: Need your help please!

Thank you! I'm new so it is challenging for me. I think that the best option is, since the machine is new, I need to check the tightness of the supporting stands, etc. since it could have loosened with some of the breakin or use. Thanks.

Need your help please!

I know you guys are probably tired of me asking dumb questions, but dumb questions are how I learn. I've been playing with my Aspire and AvidCNC because doing things allow me to learn. But I am stumped for now. I made a 3-D carving from two models that I got somewhere on the internet. I've made my p...

Re: Sorry, another newbie question

I used the exact same toolpath but limited it to a small area. I'll go back and double check. The biggest problem that I am having is learning how to set depths and heights. Thanks for responding and I will go double check on the preview.

Re: WHowe to search the manual

I guess I am just old school. Maybe it's easier on my eyes to read a manual. I am trying to start at zero and get up to speed.

Sorry, another newbie question

I apologize first for asking questions that are probably elementary to you, but I am trying to learn. I did something yesterday and made a mistake and am trying to find out why. I got a STL file and put it into Vectric. Set up toolpaths, roughing and then finishing. Both toolpaths worked fine, but t...

Re: WHowe to search the manual

I just don't do well with computer based manuals. Is there a printed version for sale somewhere?
